Conference presentations: developing nursing knowledge by disseminating research findings

Brenda Happell
2007 Nurse Researcher  
This article by Brenda Happell, intended especially for novice presenters, aims to help nurses decide the most appropriate conference at which to present could be perceived as negative.  ...  Conference presentations provide a potentially valuable means of encouraging more nurses to contribute to the development of nursing knowledge.  ...  Viability is most clearly measured by numbers of attendees.  ...
