RNAO actively supports and trains nurses to be able to transfer knowledge about nursing best practice guidelines to their professional practice.
By having nurses become RNAO Best Practice Champions, participants are provided with:
- A one-day education (orientation) workshop that will assist in developing their skills and provide resources (workbook, toolkit, articles, references) to enable them to leave with a broad action plan for local/service base dissemination and implementation.
- Access to the RNAO Champions facilitators, who are available to assist with problem solving and implementation projects.
- Access to a support network for ongoing consultation and resources through web-services, and regular meetings. These supports will link to guideline implementation information, tools and other resources to assist with implementation of evidence-based practice (i.e. standard templates for presentations, flyers and/or posters, updates, fact sheets)
- The opportunity to take part in half-day Booster Sessions, designed to enhance knowledge and skills of guideline implementation, and strengthen their role within the network.
