RFP--RNAO Tobacco and Nicotine Intervention Initiative

Toronto, Ontario
Deadline November 16, 2015 [Ed. Posting revised and extended October 23]

The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is requesting applications from interested and eligible health care organizations to become Tobacco and Nicotine Intervention (TNI) Implementation Sites.


RNAO’s TNI Initiative builds on RNAO’s expertise in developing and supporting uptake of clinical best practice guidelines, a program launched in 1999 that has gained wide international adoption. The RNAO TNI Best Practice Initiative has been funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care since 2007. The purpose of the initiative is to build capacity among nurses and other health care professionals in Ontario to integrate TNI best practices into daily practice. The initiative’s multi-prong system approach recognizes the importance of the leadership role of health organizations, nurses and TNI Champions in supporting individuals and organizations to integrate TNI best practices at the individual, organizational and system levels.

Request for Proposal Purpose:

Heath care organizations across the province are invited to apply to become TNI Implementation Sites. Implementation Sites are committed to implementing the RNAO TNI Guideline into their organizational health care delivery programs and to integrating tobacco cessation best practice interventions into the daily practice of nurses and other health professionals. Eight Implementation Sites will be selected through this RFP, and will receive a minimum of $2000 (up to $5000) for implementation related activities and resources.

A Letter of intent to apply is due on November 6th, 2015.

Applications must be received by the RNAO before 4:00 pm EDT on November 16th, 2015.
