The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario’s (RNAO) officially recognized Holland Bloorview as a Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) - one of fourteen organizations to be named a BPSO in 2012. Funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the BPSO program focuses on making a positive impact on patient care in the province by evaluating and implementing internationally recognized nursing best practices.
Holland Bloorview has earned the BPSO designation for implementing 4 best practice guidelines:
- Supporting and strengthening families through expected and unexpected life events
- Client-centred care
- Assessment and management of pain
- Collaborative practice among nursing teams
Holland Bloorview and the RNAO celebrated this outstanding achievement on May 7, 2012, during a media conference where staff and a client spoke about best practice guidelines and how they are making a difference at Holland Bloorview. Holland Bloorview joins as one of 50 BPSOs recognized throughout Ontario and Quebec for making a commitment to quality and evidence in their daily practice.
Since 2012, our work in areas related to the guidelines has been presented at numerous conferences across Canada and the United States.
