Patients can only fully engage if they are well-informed about current medical developments. Therefore, providing access to Plain Language Summaries (PLS) of peer-reviewed publications is at the core of patient participation and involvement. Also, for Health Care Practitioners (HCPs), PLS can help generate dialogue and focus communication with the patients.
Patient engagement in the development of plain language summary is often restricted to later stages (ex. review process) of PLS development. A PFMD working group (WG) has developed a practical how-to-module guidance that describes the process of Plain Language Summary creation and dissemination through a straight-forward 5-step approach to ensure early patient involvement.
