The education you will receive at OR Manager Conference is extremely valuable, though you may need to validate to management your reasons for wanting to attend.
OR Manager Conference has compiled a justification toolkit that will help with those needs. We have included several helpful items, including a customized sample letter to management.
What to emphasize with management:
A few ideas to include when compiling your request:
Conference Materials: Offer to share the information with co-workers. Bring home your conference materials to let co-workers share in the conference experience.
Current Speaker Lineup: At OR Manager Conference, you will have direct access to dozens of experts. Information sharing, question-and-answer sessions and networking are a vital part of the conference experience.
Networking Opportunities: Interact with other OR managers and directors who share the same goals. These networking contacts can be invaluable once you return to work. The contacts you make at the conference can provide input far into the future on a variety of work-related topics. Learn more about all of our networking events in 2016, here.
CE Programs Presented by Exhibitors: You can participate in 30 minute presentations by exhibiting companies and have the opportunity to earn contact hours. Each presentation is worth 0.5 contact hours; you must attend at least two presentations to earn contact hours.
Exhibitor Guide: Between conference sessions, the education continues throughout the exhibit hall floor. Exhibitors are there to learn about your day-to-day challenges and discuss solutions. Here is your chance to ask the hard questions, get real answers that will assist you with cost-effective efficiencies in your OR.
Cost-Saving Features: We understand that spending 3 or more days away from the OR can be expensive, so we’ve worked to bring you savings wherever possible.
Sample Trip Report: Create a trip report after the conference. This report should discuss the sessions you have attended and how you will apply those concepts to your operating room. Once your supervisor sees how much you have learned during the week and how it can be applied in your facility, they will be more likely to send you to a conference again.
