Academic posters are an excellent way for clinicians to showcase their work at conferences and meetings.  Similarly, to oral presentations, a successful poster can generate discussion amongst the audience members therefore it’s important to have a clear plan of what to say when stood alongside your poster. When done effectively they provide a succinct and attractive summary of your project. This session aims to provide you with a practical and concise method to prepare an academic poster.  The main focus should be on the content, results and conclusions, to allow your poster to be understood in the limited timeframe generally permitted.

Please join Lara Roskelly to discuss how to prepare a poster:

Sarah Ivey
My name is Sarah Ivey. I am the Team leader for the Lung Cancer CNS teams at Frimley Park Hospital and Wexham Park Hospital. I have an MSc in Palliative care.
An important part of my role is to develop the service to achieve quality care and better outcomes. I have worked collaboratively on several initiatives including: a pilot study evaluating the Rockwood Frailty Score compared to the ECOG scale for assessing patient's fitness for treatment; setting up a Nepalese Buddy Scheme; initiating Support groups and Moving On programmes which provide support and self-management strategies to patients and their families who have completed treatment; setting up a Nurse-led Best Supportive Care clinic which was commended in the GIRFT report 2020; pilot study to assess effectiveness of Enhanced Supportive Care clinic jointly working with palliative care consultant in the DGH setting.
During 2020 I learnt a new advanced nursing skill in performing EBUS sampling, to support the Respiratory Consultants and ensure that our patients continued to have rapid diagnostic testing throughout the pandemic (in line with the Cancer Strategy). My main areas of interest are Supportive Care and Research with the aim to improve QOL for our patients diagnosed with lung cancer.
