Top 5 Key Decision-Making Factors for an Infectious Disease PowerPoint Presentation Template

Presentations allow you to combine images and words in a way that's both engaging and memorable. Plus, if you can't give a presentation in person, you can share it online. (This is very important in today's world.)

If you're looking for a communicable diseases PowerPoint template, then you've got vital info to communicate. But how can you find the right template to get your message across?

Here are some of the decision-making factors you'll want to consider as you select an infectious diseases PowerPoint template:

1. Uncluttered Design

How do you get your audience to pay attention to your message about communicable and infectious disease? An uncluttered design allows them to focus on the message and not the clutter.

With no distracting elements on the slide, your audience is more likely to focus on your message. Look for templates with minimal or simple slide designs.

2. Readable Fonts

Readable fonts are a key part of an effective communicable diseases PowerPoint. Your message is important. You don't want your audience to struggle to see your info because they can't read your slides.

The fonts you use in your presentation need to be easy to read. This is true whether you're giving your presentation online or in person. Sans serif fonts work well in either instance.

There are differences for font size recommendations if you're giving a face-to-face presentation.

For more details on the best fonts for presentations, study this tutorial:

3. Infographic Slides

Patient education PPTs and communicable diseases PowerPoints often have lots of statistics and other data. Rather than present this data as text, engage your audience with informative charts and graphs.

We've discussed the criteria for selecting infectious diseases PowerPoint templates. Now let's look at three templates that meet the criteria.

4. Professional Appearance

Like it or not, how your presentation looks speaks volumes to your audience.

If your presentation design is clumsy and looks cobbled together, your audience may dismiss your info as wrong. But if your slide designs are professionally-designed, your audience is more likely to accept your info as being valid.

5. Image Placeholders

The right picture is an effective way to get your message across. A picture may get your audience's attention in a way that words never will.

As someone who works on public health topics for presentations you want your template to have plenty of image placeholders. They'll make it easy to drag and drop those images right into your presentation.

Surgical Tech Training Templates

You could adapt the communicable disease templates we've looked at to use as surgical tech training templates. Here are two examples:

1. Sterilize Surgical Equipment Example Slide

Here we used slide #4 of the Covirus Template to create a training slide example. All we had to do to create this example was add an image and replace the text.

2. Wear Personal Protective Equipment Example Slide

In this example, we used slide #12 from Virus Disease Education PowerPoint template. Once again, we simply added our image to the slide template and customized the text.

Anatomy Templates for PowerPoint

Are you working on a human anatomy PowerPoint presentation? You could even use slides from the templates we're looking at as anatomy templates for PowerPoint. Here's a slide example from the NVirus - Diseas PowerPoint Template:

For this example, we used slide #28 as an anatomy template for PowerPoint. First, we added an anatomy image. Then we added information in the text areas. 

Infectious Disease (Microbes) PowerPoint Template

Of course, these templates were designed as infectious diseases PowerPoint templates. That makes them ideal for an infectious disease PPT presentation or any slideshow with disease prevention ideas. 

Let's look at two examples:

1. Preventing Infectious Disease Chart Example

2. Microbes Slide Example
