Call for Posters

IAHCSMM would like to invite you to submit a poster presentation for the IAHCSMM Annual Conference and Expo. Now's the time to put your positive learning experiences in front of conference attendees and showcase them in this important educational offering.

Poster displays, which are prominently featured during the conference for all attendees to read and examine, have become a popular educational offering for Annual Conference attendees. Not only do they offer a unique way to share your knowledge and experience with CS professionals, they open the door for you to highlight a wide range of CS-related successes - from quality improvement, cost saving and patient safety initiatives to infection prevention, staff development and customer relations improvements, and much more.

Submission Standards: 

  • Attendee Posters must be non-commercial
  • Vendor Posters may contain commercial information, but must have an educational (not sales) focus
  • Posters must be submitted as a single high resolution image, or as a nine-slide PowerPoint Presentation (Note: IAHCSMM will not accept posters in any other format. If you need assistance with available Presentation Templates, please contact Siri Sorensen by email.)
  • Authors must submit a signed pdfPoster Release Form , authorizing IAHCSMM to publish and present your poster both at the conference and online

Submission: Submit your Poster Release Form, Poster, and 1-page summary (if applicable) to Siri Sorensen, IAHCSMM Sr Project Manager by email.

Display Format: IAHCSMM will convert accepted submissions to both digital and poster formats (mount on a 4'x6' foam-board) for display during the Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ. A list of posters and authors will be printed in the Conference Program and Guide to the Expo, and a PDF version of the poster will be made available online after the conference ends.
