Health care is full of terms that are difficult to understand for the average person. The words we use significantly impact how well patients understand their health care. Making sure that our patients understand their health care is very important because it can reduce anxiety and help them to make better decisions about their health. Fraser Health is recruiting 10 patients for a one-hour focus group to discuss how people understand health care terms and language with a specific focus on words used to describe care delivered over phone or video.
• To discuss how people understand health care terms and language with a specific focus on words used to describe care delivered over phone or video.
• Patient partners will offer their unique perspective and insight and help guide our inquiry.
