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. The poster gallery will be available for viewing throughout all exhibit hall hours. Attend during these times to meet the authors and earn your CEs.

To submit a poster visit and submit your poster abstract by June 30. Contact with any questions or concerns.
