For assistance and to order your printed poster call PosterPresentations.com at Object Placeholders Use the placeholders provided below to add new elements to your poster: Drag a placeholder onto the poster area, size it, and click it to edit. Section Header placeholder Use section headers to separate topics or concepts within your presentation. Text placeholder Move this preformatted text placeholder to the poster to add a new body of text. Picture placeholder Move this graphic placeholder onto your poster, size it first, and then click it to add a picture to the poster. RESEARCH POSTER PRESENTATION DESIGN © QUICK TIPS (--THIS SECTION DOES NOT PRINT--) This PowerPoint template requires basic PowerPoint (version 2007 or newer) skills. Below is a list of commonly asked questions specific to this template. If you are using an older version of PowerPoint some template features may not work properly. Using the template Verifying the quality of your graphics Go to the VIEW menu and click on ZOOM to set your preferred magnification. This template is at 100% the size of the final poster. All text and graphics will be printed at 100% their size. To see what your poster will look like when printed, set the zoom to 100% and evaluate the quality of all your graphics before you submit your poster for printing. Using the placeholders To add text to this template click inside a placeholder and type in or paste your text. To move a placeholder, click on it once (to select it), place your cursor on its frame and your cursor will change to this symbol: Then, click once and drag it to its new location where you can resize it as needed. Additional placeholders can be found on the left side of this template. Modifying the layout This template has four different column layouts. Right-click your mouse on the background and click on “Layout” to see the layout options. The columns in the provided layouts are fixed and cannot be moved but advanced users can modify any layout by going to VIEW and then SLIDE MASTER. Importing text and graphics from external sources TEXT: Paste or type your text into a pre-existing placeholder or drag in a new placeholder from the left side of the template. Move it anywhere as needed. PHOTOS: Drag in a picture placeholder, size it first, click in it and insert a photo from the menu. TABLES: You can copy and paste a table from an external document onto this poster template. To make the text fit better in the cells of an imported table, right-click on the table, click FORMAT SHAPE then click on TEXT BOX and change the INTERNAL MARGIN values to 0.25 Modifying the color scheme To change the color scheme of this template go to the “Design” menu and click on “Colors”. You can choose from the provide color combinations or you can create your own. © 2011 PosterPresentations.com 2117 Fourth Street, Unit C Berkeley CA Student discounts are available on our Facebook page.

Rethinking How to Create a Health Disparity Tutorial In 2009, I was awarded a three-month professional development leave to develop an online tutorial on how to research a health disparity topic. Training health science professionals in how to research a health disparity topic is important, as eliminating health disparities is a major goal of public health work in the United States as evidenced by the Healthy People 2020 objectives. Source: Healthy People.gov homepage. Available at: Prior to 2008, MEDLINE did not include any MeSH headings that directly addressed ‘health disparities’ as a concept. Searching for literature on health disparities required a range of concepts/keywords on multiple aspects such as race, ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic factors that novice researchers may not utilize effectively. BACKGROUND Lisa McGuire, MLIS Health Sciences Libraries, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities The tutorial development process consisted of these steps: Deciding which software platform worked best for delivering content and creating learning objects Creating content based on a health disparity case example Software Choice The initial decision in this tutorial creation was deciding which software platform to use. Originally, I intended to use Camtasia (TechSmith) software to create narrated, screencasts. Ultimately, I decided that I wanted the tutorial to be more user-driven and decided to create the tutorial using Lectora software (Trivantis) instead. Benefits of using Lectora: Available license from University Libraries Technical support from University Libraries staff who have used Lectora Ability to ‘clone’ other tutorials within Lectora in order to keep same look/feel around graphics, color choices, text location etc. Content Creation The first step in the content process was to develop a case study that could be used for a PubMed search example. The case study example used in this tutorial is to examine disparities amongst African-Americans around stroke symptom knowledge. Learning Objectives: DEVELOPMENT The tutorial is available within a guide on the Bio-Medical Library’s web page entitled: Health Disparities In addition to the tutorial, the guide also includes a definition of health disparities, information on why searching these topics can be difficult and links to other recent information sources. The tutorial consists of 20 slides describing these concepts: 1.Health disparity definition 2.Introduction to PICO as a searching framework 3.Introduction to PubMed as a source for health disparity journal literature 4.Application of case study to PICO framework 5.Short video (made with Jing) on how to search PubMed with health disparity case study 6.Introduction to MeSH 7.MeSH terms that are applicable to health disparity research 8.Contact information for liaison librarian 9.Tutorial feedback TUTORIAL STRUCTRE RETHINK & REFINE Next steps for improving the tutorial include: Rethink tutorial software, perhaps using Captivate Refine video on PubMed searching by using new software or Camtasia Create an additional video on the MeSH browser and how to utilize for efficient searching Track web statistics using Google Analytics to see monthly stats on page Incorporate tutorial into more Library Course Pages (customized web pages geared to specific U of M courses) where health disparity research is a major learning objective FOR MORE INFORMATION: Use your smartphone to take a picture of the QR code you see below. It will take you to the Health Disparity guide where the tutorial is located. Promotion of the tutorial was done to faculty and students in the School of Public Health (SPH) at the University of Minnesota. A recent survey (April 2011) sent to SPH faculty and staff gauged how successfully the tutorial met the learning objectives to how to identify health disparity journal literature, how to use PICO to create a searchable question, how to use PubMed to identify relevant journal articles, and expand knowledge of valuable MeSH terms for researching a health disparity topic. This survey response rate was very low (n=14) and nonscientific, yet most respondents felt that it met the learning objectives and that they would recommend the tutorial to a colleague. The major objectives for this project were: Investigate different methods of presenting content as a tutorial using various software options Create content that utilized a concrete example of a health disparity issue that could be useful to multiple groups of health profession students and/or junior faculty Create content that could be relatively easy to maintain Promote tutorial to various groups at the University of Minnesota Rethink, revise, repeat as necessary!
