How we provide trustworthy, accessible, and accurate information.
At Bearable, we’re committed to providing our readers with trustworthy, accessible, and accurate information so they’re equipped to care for their health and well-being. We use this Editorial Process to ensure we’re giving our readers the best possible information.
Our Editorial Process was developed by the Bearable team in partnership with experienced health and well-being journalists. It’s the backbone of everything we do. But what is this process? How do we ensure that everything we publish meets our standards?
Our team creates and edits every piece of content based on the 3 pillars of our editorial process. These pillars — (1) earning and maintaining trust; (2) keeping high journalistic standards; (3) prioritising accuracy, empathy, and inclusion.
Health information is easy to find but it can be confusing, overwhelming, inaccurate, irrelevant, or inaccessible. We want to change that.
We provide content that is trustworthy, accurate, evidence-based, clear, understandable, accessible, empathetic, and actionable.
Throughout our content, we address total well-being and help our readers to make the important connection between health and lifestyle. In support of that, we openly and objectively cover a range of topics and viewpoints.
We’re aware that everybody experiences their health and well-being differently, so we stand for inclusivity and empathy. We’re here — judgment free — for everyone seeking better health.
Our readers come to Bearable to get accurate information about their health, so it’s our responsibility to set high journalistic standards. Our news and educational content is unbiased, balanced, timely, actionable, research-backed, honest, and comprehensive. Our feature content brings forward individual perspectives with empathy, candour, and respect.
Here’s how we ensure we meet these standards:
We want to make sure that everything we publish is accessible and understandable to our readers. As a result, we rely on a proprietary style guide based on the Associated Press Stylebook. This ensures our writers and editors are focusing on readability, clarity, empathy, inclusivity, real-life application, quality sourcing, and clear citations.
We use empathetic language to tell judgment-free stories, and we make intentional choices to remove stigma, stereotypes, and to avoid injecting bias.
At Bearable, our readers are our top priority. We strive to be an ally in our readers’ journey to health and wellness. Our Editorial Process ensures that we can provide them with the most accurate, relevant, and accessible content possible.
We’re working hard to continually improve, so we want to hear from you if we could be doing better. If you have any questions or comments about the accuracy or usability of our content or feel an article is out of date, you can easily let us know by visiting this page.
