Drop the Jargon Day 2020 is a wrap!

To mark the day CEH co-manager Bernice Murphy, CEH Speaking COVID trainee John Nguyen and Mercy Hospitals Victoria Manager, Multicultural Services Natalija Nesvadba, joined hosts on SBS radio to explore how plain language from healthcare professionals can improve patient health.

Health experts say it’s a simple move that will help improve health outcomes for people from non-English speaking backgrounds.

You can listen to the interview in English HERE.
