Episode notes

Health literacy is a factor that is often overlooked and could potentially impact OA outcomes. Health literacy refers to how people access, understand and use health information in ways that benefit their health. People with low health literacy are at higher risk of worse health outcomes and poorer health behaviours.


Adj A/Prof Steve Morris is the CEO of Arthritis South Australia. Steve was previously the CEO NPS MedicineWise since 2018, which promotes the safe and wise use of medicines and other health technologies. He has worked in numerous clinical and leadership roles in the health sector, spanning pharmacy practice, community and hospitals, primary care, industry, and NGOs. Originally from the UK, Steve was deputy chief executive of the National Prescribing Centre. He was appointed an adjunct professor at the University of SA in 2018.
