UHN Learning Labs- Plain Language

Almost half of all Canadians have difficulty reading. That number increases to 80% in seniors. Research shows that the effects of poor literacy on health include:

  1. Difficulty finding and understanding health information
  2. Having more health problems
  3. Making more mistakes with medications
  4. Being more likely to experience a workplace accident

Plain language or “clear writing” is a way of presenting information that is easy for your audience to read, understand and use. This workshop will help you write in clear, plain language that everyone can understand.
