Drop the Jargon Day on ABC Radio with Red Symons

On the 27th of September Matt Loads the Communications Coordinator for CEH, spoke to Red Symons on  ABC Radio about Drop the Jargon day, why it matters and what you can do to promote it at your work.

You can hear the lively and fun conversation here

Drop the Jargon is a day for professionals in Australian health, community services and local government to use plain language.

Many Australians have trouble understanding and using information provided by organisations. They also have trouble navigating complicated systems like healthcare services.

When we use jargon, technical terms or acronyms, it is hard for people with low health literacy to understand and use information.

If you would like to promote the day at your work please access a range of promotional materials for you use here.
