RNAO has recently published the best practice guideline (BPG) Supporting Adults Who Anticipate or Live with an Ostomy.

    Replacing the 2009 BPG Ostomy Care and Management, the updated BPG provides nurses and other members of the interprofessional team with evidence-based recommendations to enhance access to care, promote positive outcomes and support adults who have or expect to have an ostomy.

    Nurse Practioners (NP) must work to their full scope.

    NPs are valuable to Ontario's health system: they reduce wait times and help patients navigate through the system. That's why RNAO has long pushed to broaden their role. Ontario hospitals should designate NPs to take the lead as most responsible provider in more cases.

    Meet other nurse executives and engage in dynamic dialogue about current and emerging nursing issues at the eighth-annual Nurse Executive Leadership Academy (NELA).

    The event will feature expert faculty from policy, practice and academic settings, providing up-to-date insights for bolstering knowledge and competence in governance and leadership.
