Breaking through the regulatory ropes and scientific shackles – thinking “patients first” in plain language summary development   

  • How do lay audiences want to receive information and what are their specific needs?
  • We will review key considerations for developing plain language summaries from the patient perspective, including:
  • Role of design, visualization and iconography
  • Application of health literacy and numeracy guidelines
  • We will share a case study to demonstrate the practical implementation of effectively combining medical writing regulatory capabilities with patient communication expertise in plain language summary development

Presenters: Shruti MP, Associate Director, Medical Writing
