Plain Language Summaries of Publications (PLSPs)
What are they and how to create one
Wednesday, May 5th at 12PM EST
There is a broad global acknowledgment that the timely and effective communication ofclinical trial results is not only essential to the development, diagnosis, and treatment of medical conditions but also meets an ethical obligation to inform patients and the public.
While scientific medical journals are publicly available, the content is not typically written in a way that non-expert, lay readers can understand. It is critical to provide this information in a format that can be easily understood and digested by non-expert members of the public and the patient community.
Another important benefit of PLSP is to assist time-limited clinicians, patient advocates, and other public health professionals to quickly understand the research and its outcomes, and subsequently use the PLSP as a tool in their communication and interactions with their patient community.
Join this webinar to better understand how Plain Language Summaries of Publications can help meet the demand and expectation for the disclosure of clinical trial results.
At the end of the webinar attendees should be able to:
- Understand and define PLSPs
- Describe how to turn a scientific manuscript into a PLSP
- Develop a plan for selecting a pilot project for your first PLSP
