The Envision the Patient team would like to
acknowledge the valuable contribution of all the
supporters of the PLS for Publications co-creation
workshop held in London, UK, on November 28th 2019.

During the meeting, which was sponsored by Envision and supported by Patient Focused Medicines Development, attendees first considered the evidence-base for Plain Language best practice and then worked together to comment on the various tools and resources now contained within the Toolbox.
