BPSO Long-Term Care


RNAO will release 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 on August 12, 2024. 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 2025-2028. 

We have BPSO coaches in every region of Ontario who are ready to help you! Contact us!

A proposal information session will be held on Tuesday, August 13 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.
