How Can the Implementation of RNAO’s Best Practice Guidelines Result in Quality Improvement?

Dec 5, 2018, 10:00am - 10:45am
About this Event:

Excellence in community health practice requires consistent application of evidence to improve outcomes. Toronto Public Health (TPH), who is a designated Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO®), demonstrates innovative leadership to support evidence-informed practice.

A cadre of Champions was trained to implement and evaluate evidence. These Champions were supported to become leaders in their field. Innovative strategies were also used to build evaluation capacity and, leverage resources for sustainability. A performance management framework was used to systematically evaluate the impact of best practice guideline (BPG) implementation and, identify areas for improvement.

Overall, the experience of being a BPSO® designate has been very positive and, enabled collaboration and evidence-informed practice. The BPSO® initiative ensured the systematic integration of evidence in the organization and, ultimately improved the health of Toronto's diverse population.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Learn about an innovative leadership approach that was used to achieve excellence in nursing practice at TPH
  • Describe the successes and challenges of evaluating the BPSO® initiative at TPH
  • Gain insights in using the performance management framework to integrate continuous improvement into practice
