Inequity in health

​This tool kit has been developed for health care professionals conducting patient education. The intention was to enhance their knowledge and competences in using health education methods and tools when collaborating with vulnerable patients with chronic illness.

In collaboration with the Danish Diabetes Association and Region of Southern Denmark, Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen has developed a health education tool kit in the project: ‘Health education targeting vulnerable patients with chronic illness – further development and testing of health education methods and tools.’

The tool kit was developed for health care professionals conducting patient education. The intention was to enhance health care professionals’ knowledge and competences in using health education methods and tools when collaborating with vulnerable patients with chronic illness.

The tool kit consists of

  • a booklet (‘Guide to health education tools’) that discusses vulnerability in relation to patient education and describes the conditions and challenges that might be relevant in relation to collaborating with vulnerable patients in the context of patient education.

    The booklet provides recommendations for structural initiatives, which could be appropriate to consider when working with this target group. Furthermore, step-by-step guidelines for the health education tools are included.
