Suggest at least one additional idea, concept, or perspective that would add to the effectiveness of your colleagues’ presentation or handout and provide a rationale for the suggestion. Consider the recommendations of NIH Clear Communication initiative for designing effective communication materials. Describe the overall effect of the oral presentation. Did it flow well? Was it clear? Was it aimed appropriately at the population that it was intended for? Were the slides too cluttered, too vague, or did they use distracting colors and styles? Was the narration effective? What did you learn about effective presenting from viewing another person’s presentation? Evaluate how well the handout communicates the information-do you perceive it to be equally effective as the presentation at conveying the important information? Think about how well the different communication styles (oral presentation vs written handout) may work at conveying this specific information to different audiences:

In the review of the tobacco use by youth, the handout encompasses several elements that relate to the topic and they have been organized in a coherent manner. The elements to be discussed in the handout depict comprehensiveness of the topic. However, in comparison to the handout, the presentation does not include certain information. This as a result reduces the effectiveness of the presentation to explain the topic.
On the other hand, the handout on the pathophysiology of Asian Americans in relation to hypertension, diabetes, and lack of physical activity, has also incorporated several aspects. The transcript has been structured in an organized manner. Pertaining to the topic, the information provided in the topic is comprehensive. Nonetheless, there is a difference between the handout and the presentation. This is majorly because the presentation is brief in portrayal of information. Consequently, this intended objective of the handout has not been fulfilled.
In conclusion, based on the review, oral presentation can be considered as the most effective style of communication. This is because it is a faster method of relaying health information. Also, oral presentation provides the key details pertaining to a particular topic. In contrast, the handout can be an ideal method of disseminating information especially where the topic requires an in-depth understanding through the provision of details.
