Write Like an 8th Grader! Improving Readability in Clinical Research

How do you ensure that your clinical research materials are readable for the audiences you want to reach? This session will help you learn how to measure and improve the readability of your clinical research communications to a participant and public-facing audience. We will discuss the importance of readability and explore the pros and cons of tools you can use. Case examples from the Duke Clinical Research Institute including informed consent forms, recruitment materials, and lay summaries will highlight how to use free and existing resources to improve your communication.
