What is a Narrated Research Poster?

Research posters are a common way to present research results to viewers at professional conferences. There are a variety of research posters with differing objectives/purposes. Nurses and allied health professionals are frequently consumers of research outcomes by viewing research posters. The narration is recorded in PowerPoint; the narrator will not read the poster, rather the information in the poster will be used as talking points to describe and summarise the content of the poster.
