How to use the RNAO BPG Literature Database


This literature database was created in response to an identified need for a central inventory of published information relating to RNAO Clinical and Healthy Work Environment Best Practice Guidelines (BPGs). The database is intended to provide health care providers, policy makers, students, and researchers based locally, nationally, and internationally with free and easy access to this literature.

The RNAO BPG literature database is designed to provide a searchable bibliography of scholarly information. With this on-line database, you can quickly search through a collection of references disseminated through various publishing channels (including primary studies, narrative reviews, conference presentations, white papers) related to the development, implementation, and evaluation of RNAO BPGs.

How to Submit References

The RNAO BPG literature database is a growing inventory. If you are the author of a paper that you would like to be included in the database, you may contact us to have it uploaded directly to the site.

All submissions are pending RNAO verification of relevance to RNAO Clinical and/or Healthy Work Environment BPGs. You may also contact us to recommend an article or reference that you think should be included in the RNAO BPG literature database.

The database is updated periodically to include any new scholarly information about RNAO BPGs through a series of literature searches conducted on numerous databases, including CINAHL, Medline, Embase, and Journals@Ovid Full Text using the keywords ‘nursing’ and ‘best practice guidelines’. Only citations specific to RNAO clinical or healthy work environment BPGs are included in the database. The database is not limited to a date range or language.
