Drop the Jargon Day 2023 Webinar

Teach-back making sure your message reaches your clients

About: Want to refresh your skills on teach-back and plain language?

In this webinar, CEH trainer Andrea will cover how using a method called teach-back can help enhance clients understanding.

Plain language is more than just using simple words. You need to make sure your message is not only heard but understood. Teach-back is an invaluable tool to check for understanding. This webinar will give you the basics and how to effectively make teach-back part of your practice.

Health literacy training

Health literacy is about how people find, understand and use information to make decisions about their health. In recent years, the focus of health literacy has shifted from individual responsibility for understanding complex systems and information, to organisations improving the health environment to match the needs of their consumers.

The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health has been an Australian pioneer and leader in health literacy since 2010, training health and community sector workers about using health literacy to improve their work and the safety and quality of their services. Here is how we can help you and your organisation work better with other cultures and language groups.

Drop the jargon and learn the skills to communicate more effectively.
