    Thanks, I agree we need to get better at the communication between researchers and the public and more personal terminology would help. But most good communication is surely about listening? I wonder if the challenge is to get researchers listening to the public More and then the chat would be better informed and the terminology more sincere?

      How right you are Bridget. This is often the first observation made by patients who have found communication difficult isn’t it? That the root cause was actually a researcher or clinician’s failure to listen.
