results of implementing RNAO’s best practice guidelines

For years, RNAO's best practice guidelines have been making a difference in improving patient care and creating and sustaining positive work environments.

Now you will have a chance to share the results with colleagues and friends thanks to the introduction of evidence boosters.

Evidence boosters are infographics that demonstrate the impact of guideline implementation on clinical outcomes.

The evidence boosters provide data on residents' outcomes in long term-care homes as they create a safe, restraint-free environment for residents using alternative strategies. In addition, show a dramatic decrease in hospital acquired pressure injuries, pressure ulcer incidence rates, and falls rates in the hospital and home-care based Best Practice Spotlight Organizations (BPSOs) both locally and abroad.

Evidence boosters will be published several times per year. Please find them below:
