Poster presentations:
Innovating at the intersection of health and justice

Why a poster?

Posters are a way to ensure a highly interactive and participatory conference. They are a great way to give services the chance to demonstrate their work; and to give people attending the conference the chance to understand the depth and variety of ways people are innovating at the intersection of health and justice.

Posters are unusual in legal settings but are regularly used in the health sector to present key information at conferences. Through these poster displays, we are hoping to build the capability of services to talk about their work in a range of ways to a range of different audiences.

Completing a poster should also assist practitioners to participate in conference workshops on topics like outcomes measurement and working in partnership. That’s why posters will only be accepted if you have someone registered to attend the conference too.

Designing your poster

The focus of your poster should be how you are innovating for better outcomes at the intersection of health and justice. The following key questions should help inform your content:

  • Tell us about yourself (the lead agency/collaborators, local community etc)

  • Describe how you are innovating at the intersection of health and justice for better outcomes

  • Tell us about the challenge/problem you are aiming to address

  • What difference are you seeking to make?

  • What are you learning?

  • Do you have a human story connected to the work you’re doing (i.e. a case study)? Tell us about it

  • How can people contact you to find out more?

Set out a narrative that best describes what you and your service are doing: its value, successes, or lessons learned about how best to meet community need.

Find images that complement your narrative. Talk with your partners about what images might be useful. Even organisational logos can break up text. (NB organisations may need sign-off for publications or logos. Leave time for this!)

Remember: Less text + more imagery = greater impact
