This fourth article in the Writing for Publication series aims to provide guidance on developing and producing a poster presentation for a conference. Most academic conferences offer opportunities for health professionals to present their work as an oral presentation or a poster; an earlier paper in this series discussed the submission of abstracts to conference organisers for consideration. Planning, preparing and producing a poster presentation requires different skills from those used when giving an oral presentation. These are examined in this paper by outlining what is meant by a poster presentation, and discussing key issues to consider when planning and producing a poster, and when presenting it at a conference.
