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 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 LTC settings to select and support a new cohort of LTC-BPSOs. Successful applicants will initially enter into a formal three (3) year agreement with RNAO from 2018-2021.

A current LTC-BPSO will share their experience.
