Workhsop - Roadmap Initiative to Good Lay Summary Practices

Wednesday, January 15, 2020, Crowne Plaza Le Palace, Brussels, Belgium

Learn about the draft Lay Summary Best-Practice Guideline elaborated in response to the Clinical Trial Regulation and take the opportunity to impact the version that will be disseminated for public consultation

The upcoming Clinical Trial Regulation requires the development and dissemination of Lay Summaries of clinical study results from commercial and non-commercial sponsors. Several large companies have already generated experience with creation of Lay Summaries and in the USA guidance on Lay Summary content have already been developed.
Also, EMA has released an Expert Group Recommendation on the content of Lay Summaries. However, there is no guidance for all types of sponsors on how best to handle the development process of Lay Summaries and how best to ensure reliable dissemination so that the ultimate goals can be achieved: increase of clinical research transparency, patients’ and public’s understanding of clinical research, as well as feedback to study participants about the results of their study.
To create a suitable, mutually acceptable framework for Lay Summaries a consorted effort of all involved stakeholders is required.
