To make the health system more patient-centred, the North Western Toronto Ontario Health Team (NWT OHT) joined the Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) journey earlier this year.  

    The NWT OHT is one of 31 partnerships invited by the provincial government to submit a full application to become an OHT. The NWT OHT is made up of 13 organizations which represent the full continuity of care.

    With the popularity of vaping growing in Canada, health authorities are waking up to a public health crisis that threatens the health of children and youth. 

    In an op-ed by RNAO CEO Doris Grinspun, published in the Ottawa Citizen, she notes a teenager from London, Ont. was put on life support after suffering a severe pulmonary illness linked to vaping. Quebec also reported its first severe illness case linked to vaping. 

    Would you like to meet RNAO’s nursing leaders? Do you have questions or thoughts to share about your experience as an RN, NP or nursing student?

    Celebrating our fifth-annual Fall Tour, RNAO president Angela Cooper Brathwaite and CEO Doris Grinspun will be visiting communities across the province to check in with nurses and hear their views on any issues related to their practice or the health system.
