When I realized Springer made the individual chapters of my book, Social Media in Clinical Practice, available, I thought it would be useful for future readers to get some insights about each chapter one by one.
Here is the short summary of what you can read about and an excerpt of the fourteenth chapter, Creating Presentations and Slideshows:
Interpreting and sharing research results and clinical findings became more important than ever as social media is changing the landscape of online communication. The common way of doing that is by giving presentations online and offline. As clinicians are overwhelmed and being up-to-date is more challenging than ever, giving clear and engaging presentation is demanding.
