Handouts: Making the lecture portable

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

9 Scopus citations


Previous medical literature on preparing lecture handouts has focused on their use in student education, where as part of a course there is a series of lectures followed by an examination. Conversely, resident and practising physicians usually attend single lectures on individual topics in order to update and improve their clinical skills. Handouts designed for the latter type of lecture can serve as a useful resource in subsequent day-to-day teaching and patient care. This article examines the purpose, distribution, structure, and substance of suck handouts. Guidelines to assist the speaker in preparing lecture handouts are discussed.
