Thinking about presenting at a conference but not sure where to start?
Take a chance and get involved... is a powerpoint presentation developed by Council members highlighting the advantages of being involved in the NRHSN as a starting point for members' presentations. It is a great starting point for you to think about your presentation, or look at what other NRHSN members have presented in the past for some inspiration. Contact the Executive for a powerpoint version of the NRHSN presentation, for ideas and assistance or for photos, logos and useful inforamtion for your presentation.
