There are various ways to structure your presentation; the following is one example:
Part 1: Organizational or Patient Issue.
What is the issue that you are trying to solve or improve?
Why should the audience care about solving it?
Part 2: Relevance of an Interdisciplinary Team Approach.
Why is using an interdisciplinary team relevant, or the best approach, to addressing the issue?
How will it help to achieve improved outcomes or reach a goal?
Part 3: Interdisciplinary Plan Summary.
What is the objective?
How likely is it to work?
What will the interdisciplinary team do?
Part 4: Implementation and Resource Management.
How could the plan be implemented to ensure effective use of resources?
How could the plan be managed to ensure that resources were not wasted?
How does the plan justify the resource expenditure?
Part 5: Evaluation.
What would a successful outcome of the project look like?
What are the criteria that could be used to measure that success?
How could this be used to show the degree of success?
Again, remember that your audience for this presentation is a specific group (or groups) at your interviewee’s organization, and tailor your language and messaging accordingly. Remember, also, that another person will ultimately be giving the presentation. Include thorough speaker notes that flesh out the bullet points on each slide.
Several slides: Plan on using one or two slides for each part of your presentation as needed, so the content of your presentation will be 8–12 slides in length. Remember that slides should contain concise talking points, and you will use the presenter’s notes to go into detail. Be sure to include a reference slide as the last slide of your presentation.
Number of references: Cite at least 3 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your central ideas. Resources should be no more than five years old.
APA formatting: Ensure in-text citations on your slides, notes pages and reference slides reflect the current APA Style and Format.
