RNAO is thrilled to announce the expansion of the Best Practice Champions Network® workshop series!

Beginning in the spring of 2013, we will be looking to partner with organizations from across Ontario to act as host sites for RNAO’s FREE Best Practice Champions® workshops.

Funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, these workshops are offered completely free of charge to all interested participants.

The application forms have been released.

We are seeking organizations who can host a workshop, who are committed to facilitating workshop attendance from their staff and other nurses in the community.

Interested organizations must be able to assist with workshop promotion, booking of workshop space and catering, and providing on-site logistical support.
