A one-day workshop, chaired by Professor Theresa Marteau FMedSci, to explore the evidence base for communicating evidence about medicines.

This workshop will consider the evidence on effective ways of communicating quantitative evidence about the potential benefits and harms of medicines.

It will explore available research on how the presentation of evidence about medicines impacts on the understanding and trustworthiness of evidence, and review existing best practice guidance on the communication of potential benefits, harms, and uncertainties of medicines.

The objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Consider the available research on how the presentation of evidence about medicines impacts on understanding and trustworthiness
  • Review existing best practice guidance on the communication of potential benefits, harms and uncertainties of medicines

This workshop is held as part of our wider workstream on 'How can we all best use evidence to judge the potential benefits and harms of medicines?'. For further information, please visit our policy project page.
