"DID YOU KNOW" Poster

The “Did You Know” Poster Subcommittee generates posters about various important clinical topics. Potential authors may be nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, or any other member of the healthcare team. The DYK subcommittee supports authors in acquiring and evaluating evidence, as well as editing the posters. We work in conjunction with a graphic artist to create professional quality posters to disseminate valuable clinical information to over 70 locations throughout MGH, including clinics and health centers. For more information, or if you would like to author a DYK poster, please contact subcommittee co-chair Carolyn Bleiler (cbleiler@partners.org). return to top
