What is Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO)?

"BPSO candidates are organizations that are working to complete their three-year partnership with the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO). After the three-year mark, organizations may “graduate” to become a BPSO as they continue their commitment to implement, evaluate and disseminate Best Practice Guidelines (BPG)."

- RNAO, 2010

BPSO goals identified by St. Peter’s Residence:

  • The development of enhanced knowledge related to utilizing and implementing a BPG
  • Review and revision of existing programs related to Falls, Restraints and Pain
  • To increase awareness and prevention of abuse to ensure the safety of the residents
  • To share knowledge and learn from peers for the improvement of nursing services within the long term care sector
  • To engage the staff through BPG implementation and to build capacity within the home
  • To review the current selection of nursing quality indicators that are reviewed quarterly and ensure that they are aligned with the implementation of BPGs
  • To build upon the existing quality platform and continuously evaluate and improve programs, policies and processes for better outcomes for residents, families and staff
