This symposium will provide a forum for Best Practice Spotlight Organizations (BPSO) to share their experiences implementing best practice guidelines (BPG).
On Oct. 28, 2021, BPSOs will discuss the knowledge they have gained, lessons learned and strategies on guideline implementation, evaluation and sustainability. All BPSOs will showcase their work through presentations, a virtual poster gallery, discussions and networking.

RNAO's Best Spotlight Organization (BPSO) program
Virtual Poster Gallery
Through the virtual poster gallery, each BPSO will have a chance to showcase their work and share one or more of the following:
- implementation tools/resources they have developed
- key milestones they are proud of
- manuscripts they have been successful in publishing
- implementation plans for the coming year
- approaches used to mobilize and engage champions or implementation teams
- approaches used to sustain guideline implementation with a focus on outcomes
The virtual posters are categorized by BPSO designation status, health-care sector, BPSO process and clinical and healthy work environment BPGs. This gallery will be available until early 2022 and each poster features contact information to allow follow-up discussion.
Note: RNAO has not vetted or endorsed the posted items as they are posted by the BPSO contact.
The institute has been designed for nurses and other health-care professionals interested in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully introduce and sustain practice change in their organization through the implementation of BPGs. The institute will feature strategies and approaches from the new Leading Change Toolkit™ and focus on creating evidence-based practice cultures within the workplace.
The goals of the Leading Change Toolkit™ are to promote health-care excellence at the point-of-care, and to create sustainable evidence-informed cultures. Structured processes guided by the Knowledge-to-Action Framework will help organizations understand their context and embrace dynamic change. Social movement approaches will promote engagement of point-of-care practitioners seeking to deliver safe and excellent care.
This network is made up of thousands of nurses and other health-care providers who are passionate about evidence-based practice and improving care in their organization. Once an individual completes the best practice champion training, they are automatically registered in the network.
The Advanced Clinical Practice Fellowship (ACPF) program provides registered nurses (RN) and nurse practitioners (NP) the opportunity to have a focused self-directed learning experience to develop clinical, leadership or best practice guideline implementation knowledge and skills, with support from a mentor(s), the organization where the RN/NP is employed and RNAO.
