Video posters

In addition to displaying and presenting a poster at the International Forum, authors and participants are invited to produce a short video explaining their ideas and work in improving quality of healthcare.

Improve the visibility of your poster

What is a video poster?

The video posters are short videos where the presenter discusses the nature and impact of their research/project which is illustrated on the printed poster they are displaying at the International Forum. This is a great opportunity to explain your ideas and improvement work in a more engaging way to a wider audience.

These video posters will be shown at the International Forum, and will also feature on the International Forum YouTube channel, and will be pushed out through our social media channels. Our aim is to enable you to present your project to a wider global audience in a personal, engaging way. It is envisaged that video posters will enhance viewers’ understanding and appreciation of a poster through the accessible presentation of the main results and conclusions reported, and increase the reach of the project.

Please note that you can make use of this opportunity only if you have an accepted abstract and have registered to attend and display your poster during the International Forum in London.

Get inspired from your colleagues' work

We offered all poster presenters at London 2017 the opportunity to send us video posters – short videos outlining the nature and impact of the research/project that inspired their poster display.

We saw this as a good opportunity for poster presenters to explain their ideas and improvement work in a more engaging way and to a wider audience.

How do I create a video poster?

Videos should be no more than 2 minutes long, and they should summarise the main experience that would be of interest to others, plus the impact on clients/patients and on the healthcare system as a whole.

This may be achieved through you presenting directly to the camera. However, in the interest of maximising engagement and visibility, presenters are encouraged, where appropriate, to combine footage of themselves with other relevant material of interest (such as the use of imagery, animations, or video of the intervention). Presenters should be aware that use of material from previously published work will require appropriate permissions to be sought from the publisher.

All you need is a smartphone! Whilst an HD video camera and external microphone will produce the very best quality, a perfectly good video can be made with a smartphone or tablet.
