ClinicalKey – how to create slides for your presentations

ClinicalKey is accessable via OpenAthens and offers useful content supporting your journal clubs, teaching sessions and professional development.

Images in particular are helpful to illustrate a disease manifestation or just to use a flow-chart of diagnosis.

Login to ClinicalKey via Athens – at the top right check your name appears (if it indicates Surrey and Sussex you now need to register on ClinicalKey).

Near you name on the far right of the screen there is a box: 

When you click on this various options appear – select Presentations

Give the presentation a name.

Use search option eg Hand

On left look at filter options and select images.

Select an image – 4 options appear in icon format: Save, Add to Presentation, Email, Print.

When you move your cursor over each option it will state what it offers – select the one that offers Add to Presentation. Locate the presentation you created and your slide will be placed there. You can now add further slides into the same presentation.

At some point when you require it look at the presentation – this can be found on the far right corner (near your name).If you are happy with the slides use export which moves the slides into Powerpoint on your PC.  All images on ClinicalKey are available for teaching purposes and a copyright statement is included in your slide which will also indicate the source which saves you time and hassle!
