[ENA Annual Conference - Evidence-based Practice Presentation]

Purpose: The local ENA Chapter presents an annual conference. This conference did not include educational posters in the past. The chapter board members were asked if a nurse could do a trial educational poster presentation during their 2006 conference to encourage chapter members to submit at a national level.

Design: This was a ENA local chapter education project.

Setting: The Austin ENA Chapter has over 100 members and has bimonthly meetings and one annual educational conference.

Participants/Subjects: A poster committee was formed and the first poster was a new ED nurse who was mentored to present a poster on a new ED Fellowship that she participated in. Future poster presenters were also mentored to present posters and then encouraged to submit for the national ENA conference.

Methods: The poster committee developed poster submission guidelines and emailed flyers to local hospital EDs. The first year, only one poster abstract was submitted. The poster committee reviewed the abstract and approved that poster for the conference. A section of the vendor area was used to display the poster.

Results/Outcomes: This was very positively received by conference participants. Evaluations showed that nurses liked having the posters as part of their conference. The following year, the poster committee sent out flyers to members and EDs advertising the fact that nurses could submit a poster abstract to be considered. Three posters were presented in 2007, and posters have been presented at the conference each year since then. Examples of poster topics have been redesigned pedi code carts, new ED protocols, how to coach ED nurses, and ventilator resource booklets. Newer ED nurses have said that they would consider submitting their abstract for a local conference, since this is less intimidating than for the national conference. Some of these nurses have then gone on to submit poster abstracts for the national ENA conference, and so far one has been accepted.

Implications: Nurses may be intimidated to submit to present National Conference ENA posters, but if they can be mentored to present posters at a local ENA conference, they may be more likely to submit an abstract. Chapters should consider having poster presentations at their annual conferences or at their meetings. This would encourage ED nurses to attend the national ENA conference and to consider getting involved at a national level. The Austin Chapter is looking forward to more ED nurses presenting posters at their future local conferences.
