Nurse interns are required to present five in-services during the training year; one in-service in each clinical rotation (medical, surgical, pediatric, maternity and phase II). Two (2) out of the 5 presentations will address health related topics from Saudi cultural perspective. These 2 presentations will be referred to as “cultural presentations” later. It is crucial that selection of cultural presentation topics reflects; challenges rise when healthcare is delivered by a multinational team to national Saudi patients, Islamic religious practices and healthcare, and Moslem/Saudi patient responses to certain disease process and treatment modalities.
The other 3 presentations will address clinical related issues directly linked to the practice within the area of assignment. The presentation could be in a cases study format. However, other topics and formats are also invited. Interns may address issues/topics such as; specific disease, specific nursing intervention, specific practice related guidelines or policy,…etc.
The presentation will be done using PowerPoint and must observe the following:
A clear and concise introduction to the topic
Aims and outcomes of the presentation
Clear, readable English writing and grammar
Conclusions and recommendations
Current evidence from research (references and proper citation)
Presentation time is 10 minutes minimum and 15 minutes maximum
It is imperative that the nurse intern has the in-service reviewed prior to delivery. The in-service can be reviewed by a Nurse Educator, Clinical Resource Nurse, Nurse Manager, or Assistant Nurse Manager.
The review should occur at least 5 days prior to the presentation being delivered. It is the nurse intern’s responsibility to book a date for the in-service presentation in their clinical area.
All interns’ presentations will be graded by the concerned Nurse Educator or Clinical Resource Nurse or Nurse Manager or Assistant Nurse Manager using a unified presentation evaluation form generated by CON (attachment No. 15)
