This week on Think: Health, we are looking at education – for midwives and the general population.
First on the show, we explore the meaning of health literacy, and how it may influence your weight. We discover that if you have low health literacy you are more likely to be overweight or obese, and we find out how GPs are managing health literacy and weight in practice.
Then, we find out how midwives in low and middle income countries are educated. Are they getting enough practical experience? Can they think on their feet? We also explore some possible solutions, in a bid to help lift child and maternal mortality.
