Clinical language has evolved as a result of clinical expertise, professional grouping and an NHS that is full of clichés and jargon. The game ‘health cliché bingo’ (CLINGO) developed following a research project by the authors exploring perceptions of mental health nursing students on care planning practice. CLINGO can be played individually or as a group. Each participant receives a CLINGO card. The facilitator selects a cliché – if the same cliché appears on the CLINGO card it can be checked off. As soon as a ‘full house’ is achieved, each clinical cliché is then discussed by the participants. It is the role of the facilitator to assist the group to find a more person-centred alternative to the cliché. Central to the learning experience is the notion of teamwork and reflection.
