Plain language

How to wear surgical and homemade masks handouts

Writing simply about health topics is surprisingly hard to do. About half of Americans don’t understand most medical text because it's written in a complicated way. And even people who can understand it would prefer simple and easy to read content.

 

Plain language is the key to helping people understand your health information – and when people understand, they can make better health decisions. Whether it's a stand-alone brochure or video, or a full e-learning series or educational toolkit, we can help.

 

We're experts at reviewing complex health information and helping you turn it into plain language. Our team uses a standardized, evidence-based tool to review your content and materials, and recommend changes. We then apply those changes to revise and design your materials. At the end, you get an easy-to-read, well-designed piece that people can understand.
