Re: Santa’s little helpers: a novel approach to developing patient information leaflets

It is striking to see a simple logical starting point such as what does a 9 year old reading level look like? Well done to you and the 9 year old students for a practical paper. I found this useful, beautifully written and fun. I was grappling with a challenge in my thesis and I am seriously going to look at this the same way. Thank you !
