Bayshore will also identify ways to sustain evidence-based practices and measure their impact on patients and the organization itself.
Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario
RNAO launched the Best Practice Guidelines Program in 1999 to provide the best available evidence for patient care across a wide range of health-care settings. The program is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The recently chosen candidates make up the fourth cohort of the BPSO® program; to date, more than 200 Canadian and international sites have been designated BPSO®.
Best Practice Spotlight Organizations®
BPSO® are health-care organizations selected by the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) to implement, evaluate and share lessons learned from their best practice guideline experiences and research findings. The partnership is dynamic and long term, focusing on making a positive impact on client care.
