Designing and producing a poster will enable you to meet the following course learning outcomes:
1. Examine the contribution of research to evidence-based practice and
2. Evaluate the credibility of the information provided by research studies by demonstrating
effective use of databases to find valid sources of information
â€¢ a beginning understanding of evaluating the credibility of the information provided by research studies.
â€¢ an understanding of why research is important for evidence-based.
â€¢ an ability to produce written work that reflects academic writing and library research skills.
Poster topics: (select the same topic you used for your Annotated bibliography)
Topic 1: Medication errors
Medication errors are a major concern, influencing patient safety in hospitals and in the community, with nurses often being the final point of delivery for medications in all settings.
Research question: What effective strategies can be implemented by nurses and health facilities to reduce medication errors?
1. Research your topic
From the topic used for your Annotated Bibliography, you need to access further literature relevant to your topic, using a total of 5-6 articles for your poster.
(HINT: You should also complete the Annotated Bibliography process for the additional articles. This will help you to develop knowledge and understanding of the issue and identify particular aspects or important points you wish to highlight in your poster, but does not need to be submitted.)
2. Design your poster
â€¢ The title, should clearly identify your message about your topic
â€¢ Your poster needs to include specific sections (see below). Lay out the sections in a way that flows or draws the reader through your poster.
â€¢ Consider using diagrams, pictures, graphs, charts, arrows and colour, as well as text to convey your message simply and clearly and catch the readerâ€™s eye.
â€¢ All text must be typed. Avoid using abbreviations, acronyms and jargon. Use a consistent style throughout. (Preferred fonts are Times New Roman and Arial)
â€¢ Text information should be in key points (â€œdot pointsâ€) to avoid over-crowding of the poster.
5. Construct your poster
â€¢ Develop your poster as A4 size
â€¢ You may construct your poster using Publisher (on the university web site) OR on MS Word OR Powerpoint. (will demonstrate in tutorials)
â€¢ Sections of the poster: Use the following headings or similar
ï€ Title: Clear, specific and be at the top of the poster. Student name (without student number) is immediately below the title, in smaller font.
ï€ Background: Definitions / description of the issue and why it is important. May use statistics in this section.
ï€ Research strategy: Description of your strategies to locate literature
ï€ Discussion or Findings (Body of the poster): Your key points and illustrations, based on the information you have found. This information is like a literature review, where you have critiqued several articles and compared and contrasted the findings. Use illustrations, graphs, and pictures to illustrate key points and to capture the readerâ€™s interest. All key points, illustrations, graphs and pictures should be referenced.
ï€ Conclusion or Summary (Take home message)
ï€ Reference list: In small font (As long as it is legible on the finished product) Place on the front of the poster, at the bottom (Usually Right hand corner) or as a separate sheet
In accordance with academic writing standards, your work should:
ï€ include in-text references as well as a reference list (as above).
ï€ ensure all referencing is formatted according to APA6th edition.
ï€ include 5-6 references (any more is too much for a poster)
