Part I: All Students

Please answer the following:

Discuss what you learned about the presentation from your readings this week.

 How will you incorporate what you learned about best practices for PowerPoint and professional presentations in your Project Implementation Presentation assignment and future presentations?


(This is a comment by the professor to help to find the appropriate answer, and the week’s lecture is attached): One tip from the reading this week for successful public speaking is to take a pause during your presentation and allow silence for the audience to think about the main points.  It is very tiring when the speaker is talking fast and does not take a break! Another short publication that helps with shyness or hesitation in public speaking is Stop Hating Public Speaking (2019) , which is referenced below. 


Stop hating public speaking. (2019). Communication Briefings, 38(3), 7.

Dissemination Through Podium Presentation

* (week lecture)

Dissemination of knowledge is a key responsibility of the DNP practice scholar. The benefits are shared between the audience and the DNP practice scholar disseminating knowledge through posters, article, and podium presentations. Dissemination supports the evidence on the topic and sometimes confirms previous results. Sharing the knowledge supports other nurses in finding solutions to their clinical practice problems. Sharing the method and project plan will support other nurses in conducting similar projects and changing clinical outcomes!

Okay, we have much ground to cover the next day. >> Yes, which presentations did you want to see? I circled the ones I wanted to go to. >> Okay, I could go to the presentation in conference room 12, and then to conference room two. >> Okay, great, I’ll go to room four, and then room nine. Let’s meet at lunch to discuss the presentations. >> Let’s meet at the cafeteria downstairs for lunch. >> Okay, great. See you later. Over here, Olivia. >> Malik, wow, what a difference in the quality of the presentations today. >> Yes, I had the same experience. Was the patient’s falls presentation good? >> Well, first, the speaker seemed to know all about this topic and could speak about it with or without his PowerPoint. His flash drive was corrupted, and he could not pull up his presentation. He began speaking as he was waiting for his slides to appear. I found that the content was really in his discussion and not on the slides. He used an evidence-based intervention, and his data collection was rigorous too. I took notes for you, and I can email all of this. He hit all of the main points without going into laborious detail. He briefly talked about the significance and prevalence of the practice problem nationally, locally, and at the organization. He also gave sufficient data. He then discussed the elements of his project question in PICOT format, the evidence for each element, and his outcome in detail, along with the data collection tool. It does sound like an intervention we can use. >> Wow, good thing he was knowledgeable about the topic. >> Yes, I imagine so. How were your presentations? >> The first presentation was awful. I went to the presentation on reducing heart failure readmissions. First, there were too many words on every slide. I could not read the words on some slides because I was in the back of the room. These rooms are not that big, so the words must have been too small on those slides. >> Well, sometimes they cram whole sentences in the bullet points, and the font is too small. The font should be large enough that a person sitting 30 feet away can read the words, which is a minimum 24 font size. >> Yes, exactly. There were whole sentences for each bullet point and too many bullet points per page. Then the presenter s
