  1. The Power of Language

    The National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (www.nccdh.ca)

    hosts a ‘Let’s talk’ series and recently released an issue entitled:

    Populations and the Power of Language.

    This short read describes how language influences attitudes, summarizes the pros and cons of common words service providers use to describe populations we work with, and provides service providers an opportunity to reflect on the language used in their work place setting.
