Health (information) literacy as contribution to healthy ageing

The focus group aims at

a) understanding personal, social, and environmental factors that determine health (information) literacy in middle and older adulthood and

b) fostering adequate use of health information by interventions on an individual or group level (e.g. educational programs) or ecological level (e.g. public health campaigns).

Possibilities to conceptualize and evaluate theory-based intervention concepts tailored to the needs of specific target populations will be discussed.
