BPSO Long-Term Care

Request for Proposals

RNAO has released the request for proposals (RFP) for interested and eligible long-term care (LTC) homes located in Ontario, to work in collaboration with the RNAO in implementing and evaluating multiple clinical nursing best practice guidelines (BPG), and disseminating knowledge from their experiences and outcomes with guideline implementation. This initiative is being carried out in conjunction with the Long-Term Care Best Practices Program, supported by funding from the Government of Ontario.

This Request-for-Proposals (RFP) is exclusive to Ontario long-term care settings and aims to select and support a cohort of Best Practice Spotlight Organizations (BPSO). Successful applicants will initially enter into a formal three (3) year agreement with RNAO from 2024-2027.

A proposal information session was held on Thursday, August 24 at 2 p.m. ET to provide an overview of  the BPSO® designation program, the process to become a BPSO in long-term care, and an opportunity to hear from a current BPSO LTC about the impact of guideline implementation on resident, staff and organizational outcomes.
