Queensland Department of Health: Informed Consent

Clinical Excellence Queensland’s Informed Consent Program is seeking eleven (11) consumers from linguistically diverse backgrounds to proofread forms that have been translated into 11 languages.  Nine informed consent forms need proofreading to make sure the documents have been translated accurately and are easy to understand.

The successful consumers will receive draft translated consent forms and patient information sheets, and the original English version to compare with. They will read these and identify:

  • if difficult words/concepts are explained clearly
  • if the text has been written in a way that most adults could understand
  • if the text has been translated correctly

Who is it for?

This opportunity would suit consumers who have a linguistically diverse background and are native speakers and writers of one or more of the following 11 languages:

  • Simplified Chinese
  • Traditional Chinese
  • Vietnamese
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • Korean
  • Hindi
  • Punjabi
  • Tagalog (Filipino)
  • Japanese
  • Samoan
