There is a handy new tool now available for those of us that create patient materials or work in any area that deals with patient education. The Plain Language Medical Dictionary was created by the University of Michigan Taubman Health Sciences Library. Though it's not an exhaustive list, it does include a lot of the common medspeak terms which it then 'translates' into plain language.
