About the Best Practice Champions Network ®

What is the Best Practice Champions Network?

Established in 2002, this network, made up of thousands of nurses and other health-care professionals who are passionate about evidence-based practice and improving care in their organization, continues to grow and thrive.

To become a Network member, appropriately named "Best Practice Champion" individuals participate in a one-day in-person workshop, a virtual learning series or eLearn designed to provide them with numerous tools and strategies to champion the implementation of nursing best practice guidelines in their organization.

Following the workshop, Champions have access to a variety of resources and supports including:

  • E-bulletins
  • Newsletters
  • Social networking
  • Regular knowledge sharing teleconferences and webinars
  • Additional workshops and seminars on relevant topics
  • Funding opportunities to support further education and networking

See the events calendar for upcoming workshops
