Collaborative Healthcare Models: Blueprints to improve
The ongoing crisis in health care continues to be driven by the concerns of cost and quality. Recent healthcare policy changes promote significant system reorganization (e.g., patient centered medical homes and accountable care organizations) aimed at increasing coordination and comprehensiveness of care as a way to both contain cost and increase quality.

Poster Board Materials
NASP will provide the following:
• One (1) single-sided cork board approximately 4′ high x 8′ wide.
• Pushpins to mount poster.
• One (1) 6′ table (1′ wide) for handout materials*
*You are encouraged to bring up to 100 photocopies (8.5″ x 11″) of your poster to distribute to attendees.
As long as the combined size of the poster fits within the 4′ high x 8′ wide frame, you may tailor the size and format of your poster in any fashion to be conducive to the effectiveness of your presentation. It is recommended that your pieces be laminated.
• The poster board provided is approximately 4′ high x 8′ wide. Please limit the size of your entire poster or poster sections to 4′ high x 8′ wide.
• Be sure to include the abstract title, author names, and the institution where the work was completed, in large letters centered at the top of the poster. Place your address, phone number and email address in the upper right-hand corner.
• We suggest that you place a reproduction of the abstract in the upper left side of the poster, and use the headings ”Title”, “Objectives”, ”Methods”, “Results” and “Conclusions” to identify your poster layout. Include an acknowledgment section, containing anyone who helped you conduct this project.
• Lay your poster sections in a logical order so that other scientists can follow your presentation. A good method is setting up your poster in a column format so that individuals interested can read your poster, 1st vertical, then top to bottom, and then left to right.
• Use a type size that can be read easily from a considerable distance (4 feet or more). Try using a type between 14 – 20 pt. The title should be larger than the rest of the text. Select a legible font such as Times Roman, Times New Roman, Baskerville, or Palatino.
• Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Therefore, keep text to a minimum, emphasize graphics, and make sure every item in your poster is necessary.
• Space your information proportionally: divide your poster either horizontally or vertically into three or four sections, and place your materials within those spaces. Like a layout of a magazine.
• Try not to stand directly in front of your poster, allow other scientists to view the entire poster. Stand to the side.
• Hand carry your poster to the meeting, using tubular packaging or a portfolio case. Do not mail your poster to the conference headquarters or to the meeting site.
• Come prepared with any relevant handouts you may wish to share and business cards to hand out.
• When choosing a background, remember that neutral or gray colors will be easier on the eyes than a bright color. In addition, color photos look best when mounted on gray.
