A revolutionary new app, complete with disease-specific QR codes, is set to transform how patients from CALD backgrounds affected by cancer access information about their care. Hear Professor Justin Yeung and his team discuss the development journey of 'Leaflet' and the day-to-day impact it could have in clinical practice.

Communicating health information to culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) patients can be a daily challenge for some clinical practices. 

Professor Justin Yeung, colorectal surgeon at Western Health, came up with the idea with a team of clinicians for the upcoming web-based App, Leaflet, to assist day-to-day clinical practice in one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse areas in Australia: Melbourne’s western suburbs. The app, which is co-developed with patients at Western Health, is designed to help patients from CALD backgrounds to easily understand their medical condition and share information with friends and family.
