The topic selected for this project is the exploration of future opportunities for improving pre-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation (PHCR). Due to the exposure to a range of threats, patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and the related issues are prone to a cardiac arrest, which is why PHCR may turn out to be a life-saving measure (Van de Voorde et al., 2017).

The digital poster in question will be represented in the form of a slideshow. Thus, key data will be outlined as a series of short theses and illustrated with the help of supportive evidence such as charts and tables. As a result, the information will be presented in a convincing and concise manner, keeping the audiences’ attention and detailing the essential data to be considered.
Developing a multimodal presentation is quite a challenge, yet I have already created several projects based on the specified format, which is why I feel quite comfortable with it. Allowing to incorporate different data types into a project, the proposed mode of creating a presentation has undeniable advantages.
I have made quite a number of slideshows with the help of Microsoft PowerPoint, which I find particularly useful and effective as a tool for introducing key information quickly. However, I am also planning to learn new ways of using PowerPoint for presentations. Specifically, I will focus on integrating interactive elements such as a slide deck into it.
The project in question offers quite a number of exciting expectations, yet the opportunity to inspire the audience and make a difference in the issue is the most important one. The presentation will help me to learn more about managing information effectively and presenting it accurately, which will help me to make my future projects more informative and credible. Although I am a bit concerned about the need to learn a lot about the tools for making presentations interactive, I am exhilarated about the opportunities that the project holds.
