Please use language carefully

I don't worry that there is greater use of Te Reo in your rebranding, and I do find it disorienting when the English term/title etc is put in tiny font or in brackets as an afterthought. Please use the English terms in the same font size as the reo, and it matters not that it comes after the Maori words, but not in brackets.

Why the contribution is important

Because it assists clarity and understanding.

    Language is something that needs to be included across the healthcare system. I think it needs to not define people and less jargon used to improve trust, feeling heard and understanding fir patients. There is a number of research around language in health care and the impact on patients and their families.
