What do you prescribe?

I came across the Please, write to me initiative, aimed mainly at doctors working in outpatient clinics, encouraging them to write letters that are easier for patients to understand. And in encouraging the avoidance of Latin terms, acronyms and convoluted language that might not be understood by anyone outside the medical profession, the principles of the campaign can be easily transferred as best practice for all clinicians who need to write clinical letters.

I wondered. Not just doctors …. where else and who else might benefit from this?
