Abstract:
PURPOSE: Our ICU is actively involved in AACN and highly encourages staff participation in submitting creative solution and research abstracts for NTI. Staff members who have previously had successful submissions become mentors offering practical support and encouragement. Everyone is excited in January when the decisions on acceptance are sent out; however, the joy of acceptance is quickly replaced by the angst of how to actually create a poster. Unnerved, first time submitters ask "What next?" DESCRIPTION: We wanted to assist staff members whose abstracts were accepted to create posters that were informative, appealing and in compliance with AACN guidelines. To accomplish these goals nurses with previously accepted abstracts organized a poster workshop day, consisting of a 6-hour blitz session during which mentors were available for all nurses with accepted abstracts to come and create their poster. The leaders invited staff members who had previously presented NTI posters to bring their laptops and attend the workshop. A clinical nurse educator from hospital education created a template that accommodated the NTI poster requirements as well as a theme with a consistent background color and our hospital logo. A conference room for a 6-hour block of time was obtained. The room had a large a table and chairs to accommodate up to 20 people at one time. With this in place, we moved forward with advertising. All potential poster presenters were sent the template and poster guidelines via e-mail to begin their poster and invited to come anytime during the session to work with experienced staff to create and polish their project. EVALUATION/OUTCOMES:Turnout was a great success. Mentors successfully guided new presenters through the process with humor and tact. The entire group was able to view and critique posters via computer before completion. They provided valuable insight and suggestions resulting in more instructive and polished posters. By the end of the session, many posters were ready to print. Those not finalized had a significant start and an identified mentor to assist in completion. Finally, all posters were consistent, providing a unified identity for our hospital submissions at the NTI poster sessions. With anxiety transformed into the anticipation of presenting their poster at NTI, the first timers knew what to do next!
