Given the nation’s limited health literacy, it is essential that clear communication and plain language become standard across medical and public health settings. The Program for Readability In Science & Medicine (PRISM) is a successful plain language initiative launched at Group Health Research Institute (GHRI) in 2005. Using PRISM tools and training, GHRI has dramatically improved the quality and readability of its research consent forms and other print materials. PRISM’s free tools and training resources may help other medical and public health professionals do the same.
Come join us on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 1pm Pacific time (Noon Alaska, 2pm Mountain) during our free monthly webcast at http://webmeeting.nih.gov/rendezvous to learn more about effective strategies for encouraging health professionals to use plain language from Jessica Ridpath, Research Communications Consultant for PRISM.
