tCI Video Glossary
Every profession spawns a unique vocabulary, often supplemented by acronyms and initialisations bewildering to an outsider. Attend a meeting of Health Professionals and you will be bombarded by a complex internal language, perfectly comprehensible to those working in that field and mind-bending if you do not.
Of course, this does not only apply to the world of Health. Jargon abounds. It is a very easy trap to fall into. When others are involved it is very important to remember they might not have the faintest clue what you are talking about, which could have serious consequences.
So, this is why we are compiling a Video Glossary of very specific words and phrases currently used in public consultation and engagement. Each video is about 60-90 seconds long and has a brief explanation plus a little bit of context. This resource will grow. Please let us know if there are any particular words from the vast vocabulary of consultation terms you would like to see as part of this. We hope this resource will help those in our profession ensure that they use words and phrases to best effect.
