NHS Scotland information literacy competency framework

NHS Scotland has produced a Framework based on an NHS information literacy model and includes a series of scenarios which involves a combination of practicioners and patients. Following a piloting exercise the framework has been divided into a series of eight A5 size booklets . Each booklet is relevant to a specific information area or interest group.

In addition to the Framework, they’ve also produced online information literacy courses available at www.infoskills.scot.nhs.uk. The courses are available to everyone who has an Athens password and ID (and there is the opportunity to register for these if you don’t already have them). A third tool they’ve developed is the information literacy portal at www.infoliteracy.scot.nhs.uk/
