Clinical Key – Presentation Maker

Clinical Key can help you to create presentations by allowing you add Clinical Key content to an MS PowerPoint show. You might do this as background information to a case study presentation or when delivering education sessions to your colleagues.
Only images can be added to presentations.

Clinical Key is available to UHNM users via their NHS Athens username and password.

Saved Content
I am going to start from some content I have already saved. I have run a search for images for a dislocated shoulder. I have saved some of these images and tagged them as “Dislocated Shoulder”.

See the blog entry on Saving Articles for how to save and tag content. I would advise you to save the content you use for a presentation as then you will always be able to refer back to the original content you have used.

Add an Item to Presentation Maker
You can add an item to the presentation maker from either the search results page, the article or item page or from the saved content page. Here I am on the saved content page.
To add an item to the presentation maker click the presentation icon. You may need to either tick the item or hover over it to view the presentation maker icon.

Click the presentation icon – you will be presented with a pop-up screen asking you to select which presentation you wish to use. You can create a new one or select one that you created previously. Use a name that will be meaningful to you.

Update Your Presentation
You can add more images to your presentation at any time – either from your search results or saved content page. You can also delete images from the presentation if you no longer want to include them.

Export Your Presentation
When you have selected the content you want in your presentation you can export it to a PowerPoint document. Select the presentation and click the Export option.

Each item that you added to the presentation in Clinical Key will be added to a PowerPoint slide, along with the description and reference from the original content and a copyright statement. You should keep this information. You can then edit the PowerPoint document to include the rest of your presentation.
