A new paper from the ISMPP PLS Perspectives Working Group, titled Plain language summaries of publications of company-sponsored medical research: what key questions do we need to address?, has now been published in Current Medical Research & Opinion (CMRO). The paper presents findings from an evidence-based study, which was endorsed and sponsored by ISMPP, that highlights key challenges and opportunities to inform best practice for plain language summaries (PLS).

The Working Group gathered perspectives from a diverse group of 29 expert stakeholders. These perspectives serve as a platform for much-needed recommendations and best practices on communicating pharmaceutical company-sponsored medical research publications to patients, caregivers, and other audiences.
