2. POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS

The second day of the conference will begin with presentations by dyads of researchers and policy makers (government) or other decision makers (health providers, patients/citizens, agencies) in a plenary session with all conference delegates. The focus will be on the shared experience of a knowledge exchange process that was intended to support the uptake of evidence in policy making  or other relevant decision making process (see sub theme #5 above). These short presentations (maximum 5 minutes) can be presented with PowerPoint or other media as appropriate.

Please provide me with an electronic copy of your PowerPoint presentation no later than May 4, 2018. To submit your presentation, please send your .pdf, .pdfx, .ppt or .pptx document to fuse2018@buksa.com

Your presentation will be pre-loaded onto the show laptop to be sure of compatibility.
