What is the Best Practice Spotlight Organization?

The Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) designation was launched as a key knowledge translation strategy in 2003. It is targeted to support the uptake and sustainability of best practice guidelines (BPG) to optimize outcomes at the individual, organizational and health system levels.

BPSOs have been established across the North Western Toronto (NWT) Ontario Health Team (OHT) partner organization and throughout the world in all sectors. The Ministry of Health designated the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) to support organizations within OHTs to implement four Best Practice Guidelines (BPG), over a 4-year period, to support in qualifying for the BPSO designation. This designation is grounded in evidence-based practices. The goal is to create evidence-based practice cultures through systematic implementation and evaluation of multiple RNAO clinical BPGs leading to improved health outcomes.
