Apply to become an external reviewer

The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario's (RNAO) Best Practice Guideline Program invites you to apply to be an external reviewer for one of our future best practice guidelines (BPG).

What is an external reviewer? 

External reviewers provide us with feedback on draft BPGs, and are essential players in our guideline development process. They can be nurses, other health professionals, persons with lived experience and their family/support members, knowledgeable administrators or funders of health-care services.

What will I get out of this?  

If selected as an external reviewer, you can: 

  • contribute insight, knowledge, expertise and/or lived experience perspectives 
  • help us make sure that we are drawing on multiple perspectives to inform high-quality guideline development

What is involved? 

RNAO asks external reviewers to commit several hours of their time to: 

  • review the guideline 
  • provide feedback and suggestions through an online questionnaire 

We will provide you with a period of two to three weeks for guideline review and feedback. 
To apply, please complete a short external review application form. Currently we are only recruiting for the following BPGs:

  • Addressing Anti-Black Racism in Nursing 
  • Delirium and Dementia
  • Falls
  • Intimate Partner Violence 
  • Pain
  • Person- and Family- Centred Care
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Self Management
