The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario is hosting the 18th Annual Best Practice Spotlight Organization® (BPSO) Knowledge Exchange Symposium taking place in person at the Toronto Hilton Hotel on September 20 – 22, 2023.

This year, the event will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BPSO designation program, which was launched in 2003. The Symposium provides a forum for RNAO’s BPSOs to share their experiences in implementing, sustaining, and evaluating best practice guidelines in their work places. BPSOs will showcase their work through presentations, workshops, and a poster gallery, while also taking advantage of networking opportunities. The Symposium will enable RNAO to acknowledge their accomplishments and contributions to this global social movement of science. Representatives from RNAO’s BPSOs locally and internationally will be gathering in person or joining by live-stream.
