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 that address the following categories will be considered for the 2023 OR Manager Conference:

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

Poster Proposal Deadline: May 31, 2023


2022 Marked the first year poster presenter awards were announced during the OR Manager Conference.

Posters will be evaluated based on originality and relevance to perioperative leadership, and their ability to offer a new approach to a concept to solve a problem related to perioperative management and leadership.
