Poster Proposal Guidelines

CE credit will be awarded for attending poster sessions; therefore, the following rules apply:

In accordance with the ANCC Standards for Disclosure and Commercial Support, all posters for which continuing education will be offered must be independent, balanced, and all conflicts of interest must be resolved. Each author named on a poster must submit the bio profile/financial disclosure form attached. Each proposal is peer-reviewed by the Nursing Management Congress Poster Review Committee. Poster presenters who are selected for presentation must register for the Conference at the “Super Early” rate and make their own travel and hotel arrangements. This special rate applies regardless of when you register! You’ll be provided with an 8-ft horizontal x 4-ft vertical poster board for each poster. You must bring your own pushpins or Velcro for mounting. No additional materials will be provided. Posters will be displayed in a separate area in the exhibit hall to comply with new CE rules and regulations and will be available for viewing at unopposed session times throughout the conference.

ANCC Rules/Regulations Defined:

Poster presenters and providers must comply with the following statements from the ANCC Standards for Disclosure and Commercial Support. Candidates may go to www.ana.org to access the full document.

  • 1.1 ANCC defines an entity that has a “commercial interest” as any proprietary entity producing health care goods or services, with the exception of non-profit or government organizations.
  • 1.2 A CNE provider must ensure that the following decisions were made free from control of a commercial interest.
    1. identification of CNE needs
    2. determination of educational objectives
    3. selection and presentation of content
    4. selection of all persons and organizations that will be in a position to control the content of the CNE
    5. selection of educational methods, and
    6. evaluation of the activity
  • 2.1 An individual must disclose any financial relationships with an entity with a commercial interest (see STANDARD 1).
  • 2.3 An individual who refuses to disclose relevant financial relationships will be disqualified from being a planning committee member, a teacher, or an author of CNE and cannot have control of, or responsibility for, the development, management, presentation, or evaluation of the CNE activity.
  • 2.4 The provider must have implemented a mechanism to identify and resolve all conflicts of interest prior to the education activity being delivered to learners.
  • 5.1 The content or format of a CNE activity or its related materials must promote improvements or quality in health care and not a specific proprietary business interest of an entity with a commercial interest.
  • 5.2 Presentations must give a balanced view of therapeutic options. Use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality. If the CNE educational material or content includes trade names, when available trade names from several companies should be used, not just trade names from a single company.
