Legendary conversations episode three

Episode three of Legendary Conversations focuses on how to better communicate with people with gout, to improve health outcomes. We discuss attitudes towards gout, and learn about the ABC Health Literacy framework with three experts:

  • Professor Nicola Dalbeth - Academic rheumatologist at the University of Auckland School of Medicine. Nicola's work focuses on understanding the impact and mechanisms of disease in gout.
  • Carla White - Director of Health Literacy New Zealand. Carla helped develop the ABC model discussed in this episode.
  • Meihana Douglas - Health Psychologist and Health Improvement Practitioner with the National Hauora Coalition. Meihana's post-graduate research focused on perceptions of gout by rural Māori, and general attitudes towards gout as an illness label.

Part 2 of 'Let's talk gout' will be released shortly. Featuring an example conversation between a clinician and a patient, part 2 will demonstrate how to use the ABC Health Literacy model in your conversations about gout.
