The Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) is inviting proposals from interested and eligible long-term care homes in Ontario, to collaborate with the RNAO in implementing and evaluating multiple clinical nursing best practice guidelines, and disseminating knowledge and outcomes from their experience. This is a new initiative being carried out in conjunction with the Long-Term Care Best Practices Program, supported by the Government of Ontario.
This is the first Best Practice Spotlight Organization Request for Proposal (RFP) issued by the RNAO specifically targeting the long-term care (LTC) sector. Although LTC homes have participated in the BPSO® initiative in the past, several areas of the initiative have been modified to enhance the experience of participating homes. This RFP provides specific supports and identifies unique requirements to ensure successful engagement of LTC homes in the BPSO® initiative – both in the initial three years, and beyond.
Full proposals are to be sent to the RNAO by 4:00 pm EST on Wednesday, February 19, 2014.
See the attached Request for Proposal documents for detailed information on proposal requirements.
