The workshop will focus on written materials, including labels and medication guides, about prescription medications that are provided to patients and consumers. The workshop’s objectives are to explore the issues around clear communication with an emphasis on the patient experience as well as the current state of research into communicating information on medications clearly, the issues around translating research into practice, and future directions for research and practice.
