Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre (SLMHC) is proud to announce its appointment as a Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) pre-designate through the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO).

What is a Best Practice Spotlight Organization?

The Best Practice Spotlight Organization® (BPSO®) designation was launched as a key knowledge translation strategy in 2003 and is targeted to support best practice guideline (BPG) implementation, rapid learning and evidence-based practice sustainability at the individual, organizational and health system levels to optimize clinical and health outcomes. BPSOs have been established across Ontario and throughout the world, in all sectors. BPSO designation is an opportunity for health service and academic organizations to formally partner with RNAO over a three-year period to achieve designation. Following this period, the partnership is renewed biennially, based on the achievement of required deliverables. The goal is to create evidence-based practice cultures through systematic implementation and evaluation of multiple RNAO clinical BPGs. (Source: https://rnao.ca/bpg/bpso).
