The Australian Charter of Health Care Rights states that patients have "a right to be informed about services, treatment, options and costs in a clear and open way".
Queensland Health encourages Health Service Districts and Divisions, and other health care organisations to tranlsate key health infomation into other languages to help facilitate patients clear understanding about health care services, treatments and options.
The Practical guide to organising translations offers a step-by-step guide for health care workers and community organisations wishing to translate health information into other languages.
