Facility Name, may include particular unit
BACKGROUND / PROBLEM
Problem refers to the issue you would like to investigate. In this section, you should cite references to explain problem.
Body of text goes here
Avoid long blocks of text
10 sentences/bullet points max for better looking posters
Use Ruler, Gridlines, and Guides for setting up your poster. These are found under the “View” tab at the top.
POPULATION AND INTERVENTION
Population refers to the subjects you plan to examine or those who would be impacted while Intervention refers to the change you have made or would like to see made.

These text boxes are already set up on the poster template, but you can create new sections if your project needs them
In the table/figures section, you can insert appropriate graphs or images to support or share your findings.
Create the entire poster in one environment (for example Mac or PC) as switching between can cause lost images or unanticipated changes to graphs
Don’t display two-dimensional data in 3-D. Three-dimensional graphs obscure the true difference between bar heights and can appear “messy”
When you include a photo, add a thin border to the photo to avoid a “floating” effect
The comparison information should identify what other practices are being used for your population or problem and how the change would benefit the facility, staff, and/or patients. This is the section to discuss the results of your pilot / implementation.
Font Theme: Nirmala UI (TNRP official font)
Title 72 points Bold
Authors 54 points Bold
Facility 36 points Bold
Section Headers 36 points Bold and all CAPS (white)

OUTCOME / CONCLUSION
The outcome section should share the expected outcome by implementing the proposed intervention.
Double-space text, using left justification. It is easier to read. Do NOT double space after each sentence. Your computer automatically adjusts spacing for you
Use one font throughout the poster. Create emphasis by using bold, underlining. Try to limit color and avoid italic text, it is just to hard to read.
Body of text should be readable from several feet away. Current font size is set at 36 points but no smaller than 32 points. Supporting text should be no smaller than 24 points.
A list of three to five references should be included. If possible, references should be less than five years old.
Maintain a 1 to 1.5” boarder of white space on all sides to accommodate printing variations
Type all special characters (Greek/mathematical symbols) directly into the PowerPoint rather than copying and pasting from another document. Special characters pasted into a PowerPoint document can print incorrectly even if the characters display correctly on the monitor
Identify an intervention/problem within nursing that could be implemented in patient care or in the hospital setting to improve efficiency or patient care.
