Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario

Long-Term Care - Best Practice Spotlight Organization

Request for Proposals


The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is requesting proposals from 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.

The request for proposal (RFP), exclusive to LTC settings to select and support a new cohort of LTC-BPSOs, will be released on Friday, Oct. 2, 2020. Successful applicants will initially enter into a formal three (3) year agreement with RNAO from 2021-2024.

A proposal information session will be held on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020 at 1 p.m EDT. The session will describe the Best Practice Spotlight Organization® (BPSO) designation program, the process for becoming a LTC-BPSO, and hearing from current BPSOs about the impact of guideline implementation on resident and organizational outcomes.  Interested leaders can register for this webinar session at
