  • Science can seem like a foreign language to many people, it can be particularly confusing in a clinical setting. Being unwell or visiting the hospital can be a scary, overwhelming experience, and despite the best efforts of professionals, patients can feel confused. Patients may find it easier to concentrate on getting better when they understand what’s really going on.

    Dr Jargon: Genomics challenges players to describe and guess genomics-related terms against the clock. Players take turns to select a card and describe the genomics-related term on it to their teammates, but don’t mention any of the jargon words listed on your card – you’ll get “busted” by the opposite team and lose a point!

    Playing Dr Jargon encourages players to think outside the box, and consider alternative ways of describing conditions and treatments. It’s a fun way for professionals and students to practise using simple, patient-friendly language. Players will think creatively and figure out how to explain complex terms without relying on complicated jargon!
