On-demand webinar recording:  April 21, 2020 to April 21, 2023

Why is this article important to your practice? 

Scientific discourse is driven by the active dissemination of research and knowledge at all stages of a career. One of the most common ways to communicate scientific findings is to present them at meetings, among peers or to the wider community and to discuss the findings to advance both one’s personal understanding and that of the audience.  Preparing a clear message to convey the findings of research, placing them in context without overwhelming the audience and providing a confident conclusion that helps to drive scientific innovation are components of a good presentation. This webinar combines tips & tricks on how to create and format a presentation to provide a consistent message and flow, as well as build on existing skills to further engage and drive the audience to get the message across. A successful presentation is an essential driver for scientific success, networking and a career in all areas of clinical pharmacology.
