Presentation skills for nurses

Mark Foulkes Nurse consultant in cancer care and trust lead cancer nurse, Berkshire Cancer Centre, Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, Reading, England

This article emphasises the importance of effective presentation skills. Such skills allow nurses to share knowledge and expertise and to communicate clearly in a range of workplace scenarios. Nurses are increasingly being asked to present in formal and informal situations, such as conferences, poster presentations, job interviews, case reports and ward-based teaching. This article explores the principles underpinning the development of these skills, discusses the situations in which they could be applied and demonstrates how nurses might improve and develop as presenters.
