Are you making clients sick with poor writing?

Health is complex.

If clients can’t understand your

information, they can’t stay well.

We all need a plain language check-up.

Watch the video to find out more.

Less than 1% of online health information is 

written so average people can understand it.

It’s too complex and overwhelming

for the majority of readers.

This poor writing makes clients think

 

 “I can’t do this”

We think this training is great, but don’t take our word for it!

This course helped me recognise that we can do better with our written communication and consumer health information.

A few of us did the course and loved the insights into literacy levels, and how to turn information from complex to easy to read.

It has definitely been a worthwhile learning experience.

The Reach more people training is the best plain language writing resource I’ve found!

Jolyon’s presenting style is very clear and easy to listen to, and there are plenty of activities and quizzes spread throughout the session which make it very interactive and engaging.

I think everyone – from beginners to experienced writers – will benefit from this course.

The online plain language course used a variety of videos, reading and activities to provide great information in an interesting format.

I highly recommend this course for anyone involved in providing written communication.  It was full of strategies you can easily implement to reach more people!

To paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, you don’t know what you don’t know.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn new concepts, tricks and tips that I hadn’t previously thought about or come across – as a result, I’m better at communicating with a wider range of people.

For a relatively small amount of time, that’s a really valuable outcome. Highly recommend this course.
