Abstract/OtherAbstract:
THERE IS much talk in health and care about 'putting patients first', but the words staff and managers use often tell a different story. Health care is replete with platitude, jargon and euphemism, perhaps more than other fields of endeavour. Worst of all are terms that denigrate or alienate patients.
