Strategies include, but are not limited to

  • Keeping most protocols and procedures short with bulleted information
  • Larger fonts and spacing to assist in reading
  • Pictorial instructions to offer a visual understanding of tasks
  • Dating of the document to show the last time it was reviewed or changed
