Improves quality of care
RNAO Clinical Pathways are derived from its Best Practice Guidelines (BPG). These evidence-based tools have been implemented by more than 100 long-term care homes in Ontario with significant improvements in the quality of care. For example, one home implemented 12 BPGs and achieved measurable improvements in the quality of care and in resident outcomes.
The RNAO Clinical Pathways are aligned with the Resident’s Bill of Rights. They promote evidence-based practices for person- and family-centred (PFCC) care. Several long-term care homes in Ontario have implemented RNAO’s PFCC BPG and enhanced resident-centred care and resident outcomes.
