Become a stakeholder reviewer for the Care Transitions, Second Edition best practice guideline

RNAO is currently developing the Care Transitions, Second Edition (working title) best practice guideline (BPG) and is seeking stakeholder reviewers to join its development process. 

This guideline will replace the first edition of the Care Transitions BPG and is expected to be published in late 2022. It will feature evidence-based recommendations for nurses and other members of the interprofessional team, organizations, and the health system to support safe and effective transitions in care for pediatric and adult persons together with their support network. This BPG will focus on transitions between and across settings, including but not limited to: acute care, long-term care, primary care, home and community care, rehabilitation, mental health and addictions settings, and other social care settings. 

This BPG is being developed with a wide array of expert panel members, including representatives from Best Practice Spotlight Organization® (BPSO) Ontario Health Teams (OHT). The BPSO OHTs are involved to help ensure that the BPG supports integrated care across sectors. In April, RNAO hosted two half-day meetings for the expert panel to discuss and anonymously vote on the recommendations that will be included in the BPG. 

The RNAO team is currently drafting the BPG in consultation with the expert panel. As a next step, RNAO will be seeking stakeholder feedback on the BPG from nurses and other health providers, persons with lived experience, and knowledgeable educators and administrators throughout Canada and around the world. Stakeholder review is expected to take place in this summer.
