Where To Start

  • A poster presentation can be used to display a research or quality improvement initiative, a unique program or an approach to a clinical topic

Where to start3 l.jpg
Where To Start

  • Begin by making a list of the ideas you would like to present in the poster

  • Talk with your colleagues or your Nurse Educator about ideas to include in the poster

  • Contact an external resource like a member of the Nursing Research Committee (see Nursing Leadership Council website for membership list) or Biomedical Communications for assistance

How do i decide the format l.jpg
How Do I Decide the Format?

  • Poster presentations usually are presented in one of 2 formats – one single sheet design or individual pieces of paper mounted on mat board

  • The single sheet design will require the work of Biomedical Communications (BMC) and the cost will be higher than the mat board format

  • Mat board format can be done in a program like PowerPoint and the pieces of paper can be printed on a color printer and then mounted – by yourself or at BMC

Components of the Poster Display

  • A title or a header board

  • A brief description of the research project or the program/approach

  • Visual images like pictures or graphs

  • Information about the project or program/approach (may need more than one)

  • Any conclusions or recommendations

  • Most mat board posters have a maximum of 12 boards
