Greetings from Doris Grinspun Executive Director Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario It is with great excitement that the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) disseminates this nursing best practice guideline to you. Evidence-based practice supports the excellence in service that nurses are committed to deliver in our day-to-day practice. We offer our endless thanks to the many institutions and individuals that are making RNAO’s vision for Nursing Best Practice Guidelines (NBPGs) a reality. The Government of Ontario recognized RNAO’s ability to lead this program and is providing multi-year funding. Tazim Virani – NBPG program director – with her fearless determination and skills, is moving the program forward faster and stronger than ever imagined. The nursing community, with its commitment and passion for excellence in nursing care, is providing the knowledge and countless hours essential to the creation and evaluation of each guideline. Employers have responded enthusiastically to the request for proposals (RFP), and are opening their organizations to pilot test the NBPGs. Now comes the true test in this phenomenal journey: Will nurses utilize the guidelines in their day-to-day practice? Successful uptake of these NBPGs requires a concerted effort of four groups: nurses themselves, other healthcare colleagues, nurse educators in academic and practice settings, and employers. After lodging these guidelines into their minds and hearts, knowledgeable and skillful nurses and nursing students need healthy and supportive work environments to help bring these guidelines to life. We ask that you share this NBPG, and others, with members of the interdisciplinary team. There is much to learn from one another. Together, we can ensure that Ontarians receive the best possible care every time they come in contact with us. Let’s make them the real winners of this important effort! RNAO will continue to work hard at developing and evaluating future guidelines. We wish you the best for a successful implementation!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
