Winter Webinar 2022

Prose, PowerPoint, and Print:  How to Share your Work with the World

Speakers:          Gill Roper-Hall, Kyle Arnoldi, Burton Kushner

Moderators:     Rachael Jenkins, Leslie France

Abstract: 

The primary missions of clinical research are to (1) advance knowledge within the field and (2) improve patient care. In this, the clinician and the researcher work together in partnership.  The role of the investigator is to develop and test a hypothesis.  To a researcher, success is a data set that supports the hypothesis.  But unless those results are disseminated effectively and efficiently to the target audience, it is as if the experiment did not occur.  One cannot achieve these objectives without successful publication and/or effective public speaking in a forum available to the clinician.  As such, the final step in a successful clinical research project requires communication skills.

In the first section of this webinar, Gill Roper-Hall will address the art and techniques involved in giving an effective presentation of one’s clinical research before a live audience.  These include disclosures, etiquette, timing, recognitions, and audience interaction as well as practical suggestions for the most effective format to display the visual material.

 

The second half of the webinar will focus on medical writing and publication.  Kyle Arnoldi will present a brief review of basic technical writing skills, article organization, and recommended style.  Dr. Kushner will discuss what an editor looks for in a submission, the review process, copyright and permissions, and distribution of the completed work.

 

Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  1. Prepare an effective presentation for a target audience that features appropriate details of the speaker’s clinical research.

  2. List and define different models of medical writing and the article structure for each.

  3. Name several resources (books, programs, websites, mentors) that can assist the writer, and the proper use of each.

  4. Describe the steps in the publication process from submission to publication.

  5. Prepare all materials (illustrations, cover letter, permissions) that are typically required to accompany the manuscript when submitting to a journal.
