A History

Background:

In 2001, when I assumed chairmanship of the Department of Surgery of Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center, I provided the Department and its resident staff an LCD projector.  My intention was to promote efficiency in medical and non-medical presentations in the Department.   My other intention was to provide the staff, particularly, the residents on how to prepare and use powerpoint for their presentations.

We discarded right away the use of transparencies using acetate papers and ordinary plastics for presentation.

With the constant availability of an LCD projector from 2001 up to present, 2012, the residents have been using powerpoint presentations since 2001.   I taught the residents how to prepare proper slides for powerpoint presentations.  (Note: I will share my teachings on proper preparation of slides in another time or another paper.)

I was also the prime mover in creating a template for the powerpoint slides of the Department , whose history and other information I will share below.

History of Evolution of Powerpoint Template of the Department of Surgery of OMMC

2001 to 2007

I recommended blue background with white or yellow fonts.  I did not require the presence of the logo of the Department. ppt_template_2001to2007

2008

We included the official logo of the Department in the right upper corner of the slide.

We included a tagline – “Towards Patient Safety in Surgery.”

Patient safety was the thrust of the Philippine College of Surgeons during this time as well as globally. ppt_template_2009to2011

2011 (July)

In the tagline, we added “Promote customer delight. Avoid complaints at all times!
