RNAO signs agreements with new BPSO hosts in Peru and Chile

Innovative partnerships between RNAO and the Ministry of Health of Chile (MINSAL) and Peru’s College of Nurses (El Colegio de Enfermeros del Peru) will bring evidence-based nursing practice to several hospitals in the South American countries, and strengthen the care delivered.

As hosts of the Best Practices Spotlight Organization (BPSO) program, MINSAL and Peru’s College of Nurses will systematically implement best practice guidelines (BPG) from RNAO.

These include guidelines to prevent and reduce injuries from falls, reduce pressure ulcers in patients with limited mobility, reduce foot complications in patients with diabetes, and improve care for vascular access complications.

Currently, BPGs are being implemented by BPSOs representing more than 550 Canadian and international organizations.
