This workshop introduces participants to RNAO’s Best Practice Guidelines  and evidence-based practice, along with a model to implement practice change.
Throughout the workshop, participants utilize RNAO’s Toolkit: Implementation of Clinical Practice Guidelines , learning how to conduct a needs assessment and gap analysis in order to identify the practice change to be implemented, engage stakeholders, assess their organization’s readiness and develop a plan for implementing best practice recommendations in their work setting.
All nurses living and/or working in the province of Ontario are eligible to attend Best Practice Champions® events. Allied health professionals are also eligible to attend, however priority is given to RNs and RPNs.
Nurses who must travel to attend an introductory workshop or advanced session may be eligible to receive reimbursement for travel expenses.
