Thank you

Plain language summaries (PLS) support healthcare equity and inclusion by ensuring information from clinical studies is understandable and accessible to all. Recently the ISMPP PLS Perspectives Working Group, Pfizer, and Open Pharma published individual articles on plain language summaries.

This webinar will feature representation from each group, as well as publishers, and patients/ patient advocates, and focus on best practices in developing PLS of medical journal articles. A discussion on measurements of success as defined by accessibility and discoverability, as well as pilot research on whether PLS increase the impact of published research, will be featured.

Participants will leave with guidance on how to successfully integrate PLS into publication's standard operating procedures and best practices for working with publishers to generate PLS.

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

  • Understand key points in the PLS guidance documents and publications developed by the ISMPP PLS Perspectives Working Group, Open Pharma and Pfizer
  • Understand how to create an implementation process for PLS generation
  • Understand what medical communication professionals can do to support the discoverability and accessibility of PLS
  • Understand if PLS increase the impact of published research
  • Gain knowledge of how to work with patients/ patient advocates on PLS generation
