I look forward to future collaboration and new opportunities that will be provided as www.posterdocuments grows and expands."

"This is fantastic. I attend many research and CME meetings and this is the first time I can access posters on-line after a meeting, or from a meeting I could not attend.

In some cases information, provided in a more accessible way to a wider audience, will impact clinical practice, outlook and competence and ultimately could affect better patient outcomes."
