Poster Presentations

The OR Manager Conference Poster Gallery provides a forum for presenting completed research or in-progress research with preliminary results. It is an opportunity to present research, performance improvement projects, or clinical practice innovations visually using graphs, illustrations, or photographs. We strive to promote communication and collaborative research among nurses, provide a setting for exchange of information and lessons learned, and explore advances in perioperative clinical practice.

Poster Presentations at the 2022 OR Manager Conference address six categories:

  • Infection Control
  • Patient Care/Patient Engagement
  • PACU/Post-Op
  • Technology/Innovation
  • Process Improvement
