Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
In 2010 NICE released a clinical guideline recommending that natriuretic peptide (NP) testing in patients with
suspected heart failure without previous myocardial infarction can accelerate diagnosis of heart failure and also
avoid unnecessary echocardiography. A framework for the evaluation of the value of implementation activities is
applied to this recommendation for NP testing.
