Since 2007, the RNAO Smoking Cessation Initiative has successfully engaged nurses and other health care professionals across the province to learn and apply evidence-based smoking cessation strategies and interventions with clients in their practice settings.
For the 2013/14 year, the Initiative includes a strong focus on supporting and enhancing healthcare organizations as implementation sites.
Implementation Site activities include the integration of RNAO’s Smoking Cessation Best Practice Guideline: Integrating Smoking Cessation into Daily Nursing Practice  within at least one program or department as well as maintaining the growth and momentum of integrating smoking cessation best practice into daily nursing practice, and developing new structures and processes to support the spread of evidence-informed smoking cessation strategies and interventions across healthcare sectors.
In preparation for the 2013/14 RNAO Nursing Best Practice Smoking Cessation Initiative, we would like to extend to you an invitation to apply to become a Smoking Cessation Implementation Site, as we work together to influence the integration of smoking cessation best practices into nursing practice across the province.
Application submissions will be accepted from eligible healthcare organizations across Ontario.
