    Description

    Excellent presentation skills are essential for all clinicians but although undergraduates are taught clinical skills, few have the advantage of being trained in public speaking. Fortunately, however, making effective presentations is a learned skill and the author will illustrate just how easy it is to acquire this skill - with the resultant career benefits.

    Written for clinicians at all levels, Effective Presentations for Healthcare Professionals will help you to speak confidently at conferences and seminars, bid for resources more successfully, create a positive impression at interviews and share your ideas with colleagues. As well as an essential companion for any professional embarking on their career, this book is also a useful resource for experienced presenters, providing up-to-the-minute tips in a format especially relevant to the healthcare professions.
