Health information literacy and ageing Australians : applications for practice

Stoodley, Ian D., Partridge, Helen L., Bruce, Christine S., Cooper, Helen, & Edwards, Sylvia L. (2013) Health information literacy and ageing Australians : applications for practice. (Unpublished)


This practice framework is designed for health practitioners and allied health care workers. The framework provides empirically-based descriptions of ageing Australians’ experiences of health information literacy and suggests how these may provide a foundation for helping ageing Australians enhance their health information literacy. Health information literacy is understood here to be people’s use of relevant information to learn about health.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
