Presenting with precision: preparing and delivering a polished conference presentation

Brenda Happell Professor of contemporary nursing, Institute for Health and Social Science Research, CQUniversity Australia, Queensland, Australia

Conference presentations are recognised as a valuable means of disseminating knowledge. Brenda Happell offers a guide to delivering a conference presentation, including writing the paper, preparing audio-visual materials and minimising the impact of nervousness. She also discusses strategies for obtaining feedback on presentation style

Conference presentations are increasingly recognised as a mechanism for the dissemination of nursing knowledge (O’Neill and Duffey 2000, Cleary and Walter 2004), and there is a growing expectation that nurses, both academics and clinicians, will engage in this form of professional activity (Cleary and Walter 2004, Cumbie et al 2005, Happell 2005).
