Fellows in these sub-streams are encouraged to utilize resources, approaches or tools from RNAO’s third edition Leading Change Toolkit™ to support the advancement of your goals.

a) Individual change agent (Clinical) - This sub-stream is focused on the development of your knowledge, skills and expertise in a specific area of evidence-based practice that will enhance care delivery in your organization or community. For example, it could include gaining a deeper understanding of an area of clinical practice such as providing palliative care to children and their families, developing advanced pain assessment skills or enhancing your wound management knowledge.
b) Change team (Leadership) - This sub-stream is focused on using strategies to mobilize and engage people to support the uptake and sustainability of evidence-based practice. This may include enhancing your skills in areas such as education, research, management or policy through the engagement of change teams within your organization (i.e., implementation teams), persons with lived experience (i.e., patients and families), or other stakeholder groups within or outside of your organization.
c) Organizational (Guideline Implementation) - This sub-stream is focused on gaining the skills necessary to support the implementation and sustainability of a specific RNAO Best Practice Guideline. Fellowships in this stream will explore one or more aspects of the implementation of practice change, and will be expected to utilize frameworks, processes, strategies and tools within the third edition Leading Change Toolkit™.
