Reflections on preparing a poster for an RCN conference

Helen Hand Lecturer, Sheffield Hallam University and GUM nurse practitioner, Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Trust, UK

Helen Hand talks about her experiences of creating a poster for an RCN annual nursing research conference

The acceptance letter for the RCN Annual International Nursing Research Conference signalled the start of my doctoral research dissemination process and my first attempt at presenting a poster. The poster is potentially an excellent springboard for discussion, since information provided on the poster will, by necessity, be superficial, leaving the interested reader to access the detail from the person most passionate, insightful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the research – the presenter. This paper describes the planning, preparation and presentation of the poster followed by a critical reflection on the process in the light of literature.
