RfP--Smoking Cessation Implementation Site, Registered Nurses Association of Ontario

Deadline August 28, 2013

The Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) is pleased to announce the 2013/2014 Request for Proposal to become a Smoking Cessation Implementation Site.

Since 2007, the RNAO Smoking Cessation Initiative has successfully engaged nurses and other health care professionals across the province to learn and apply evidence-based smoking cessation strategies and interventions with clients in their practice settings.

For the 2013/14 year, the Initiative includes a strong focus on supporting and enhancing healthcare organizations as Implementation Sites. Implementation Site activities include the integration of RNAO's Smoking Cessation Best Practice Guideline: Integrating Smoking Cessation into Daily Nursing Practice within at least one program or department as well as maintaining the growth and momentum of integrating smoking cessation best practice into daily nursing practice, and developing new structures and processes to support the spread of evidence-informed smoking cessation strategies and interventions across healthcare sectors.

In preparation for the 2013/14 RNAO Nursing Best Practice Smoking Cessation Initiative, we would like to extend to you an invitation to apply to become a Smoking Cessation Implementation Site, as we work together to influence the integration of smoking cessation best practices into nursing practice across the province.  Application submissions will be accepted from eligible healthcare organizations across Ontario.

Please see the RFP form at the following link http://rnao.ca/sites/rnao-ca/files/RFP-RNAO_Smoking_Cessation_Initiative... . It includes project description and application form.  

Please note the deadline date for the application is on Wednesday August 28, 2013, at 4:00 p.m. EDT.

We look forward to your involvement and thank you for your continued dedication to this very critical health issue and for your work in supporting the role of nurses in addressing the tobacco epidemic.
