Special 90-minute ISMPP U: Plain Language Summaries (PLS) of Publications: Perspectives that will shape the future.
Live webinar & recording approved for 1.5 ISMPP CMPPTM certification credits

Webinar Overview
Whatever we might think we know about plain language summaries (PLS) of publications, change is coming! The era of ‘PLS of Publications’ is already upon us. Indeed, PLS of publications are evolving rapidly from an innovation in medical communications to an essential part of industry communication plans. Five years ago, many ISMPP members and those working in medical communication roles probably didn’t even have PLS on their radar. And yet, we predict that 5 years from now (hopefully sooner!), there won’t be many publication plans without PLS!

This webinar will help attendees embrace the transformational changes that are taking place within the PLS space. Rather than stare at a crystal ball, we have conducted original research, with valued support from ISMPP, to gain direct insights from diverse stakeholders into the future of PLS of publications. Our research has provided us with a richer, deeper, and broader understanding of the questions and potential answers for PLS of publications. We are keen to share this new information with attendees and, just as importantly, provide a platform for discussion with our expert faculty. You will hear new voices and fresh perspectives at this session. You will recognize a common and deep commitment from all stakeholders to ethical and effective PLS practices.

Furthermore, we will highlight the opportunities to move PLS of publications forward, as identified by key stakeholder groups. While PLS of publications will be discussed in the forthcoming Good Publication Practice 4 guidelines, the time to prepare for PLS of publications is now! The evidence and insights you will gain from this session will help you to do just that.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the top 10 key questions to be addressed relating to PLS of publications
  • Identify the opportunities for accelerating the uptake of PLS of publications, as identified by 6 key stakeholder groups
  • Consider how to apply the latest evidence and insights about PLS of publications in your organization
