On Drop the Jargon Day! Tuesday October 22
Many clients have trouble understanding and using information we give them. They also struggle to understand and get around complicated systems like healthcare.
When we use jargon, technical terms or acronyms, more people can’t understand and use the information we give them. Let’s Drop the Jargon.
Drop the Jargon is a day for professionals in Australian health, community services and local government to practice and promote using plain, jargon free language.
Join the fun on Drop the Jargon Day:
- Pledge to drop the jargon at your work
- Do the fun activities we’ve pre prepared for you
- Use the tag #dropthejargon to promote your activities and get the word out.
