Summary

Poster presentations given at scientific meetings are widely used in medicine, nursing, and allied
health professions to communicate research findings. A good poster presentation can be an
effective way to share the results of your research with your peers, in a collegial and non-
threatening atmosphere. Feedback received during a poster session can be invaluable in refin-
ing your research and preparing for publication in a peer reviewed journal. A typical poster
presentation follows the same format as a scientific paper. Poster sections include a title banner,
the abstract, introduction, method, results, discussion, conclusions, and tables and figures.
Technical details of poster production include decisions on what materials and methods to use
to print and display your poster, font size, whether to use a professional graphics department
for production, and cost. Presentation of your research at a professional meeting can be a
rewarding experience, and is a useful step toward publishing your research in a respected
science journal. Key words: research, publications, exhibits, medical illustration, conferences and
congresses, tables and charts. [Respir Care 2004;49(10):1213–1216. © 2004 Daedalus Enterprises]

An article by Wills et al (2018) aimed to explore perceptions of nurse appearance and projected professionalism. A sample size of 120 students were used as volunteers to participate in the study. The main research question to be answered was “how do college students perceive the professional appearance of nurses?” The study design was quantitative on cross sectional and non-experimental study with their descriptive design. From the results of this study, it was concluded that the participants perceived nurses who took their time to work on their appearance to be professional, least lazy and trustworthy. Nurses that were not careful about their appearance were perceived as lacking confidence and less compassionate.
