Hello brainXchange members,
We are excited to share with you some updates and knowledge exchange opportunities:

Knowledge to Practice Community of Practice

The Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) Knowledge to Practice Community of Practice (CoP) brings together professionals across Ontario who have a shared passion for capacity building and fostering knowledgeable healthcareteams. Under the umbrella of BSO, this CoP will be specifically focused on enhancing care for older adults with complex and responsive behaviours associated with dementia, mental health, substance use and/or other neurological conditions.

To support members in the complex task of putting knowledge into practice, the CoP has adopted the 'Knowledge to Practice Process Framework'. This is a framework that can be used in many ways, for example: capacity building, program development, and clinical work. The 4 stages of this framework are: 1) Creation; 2) Transfer; 3) Translation; and 4) Implementation. 

Through webinars (live and archived), documents, idea exchanges and experiences, innovations and stories are shared to collectively enhance services for older adults with complex and responsive behaviours.

Participants include:
  • Psychogeriatric Resource Consultants
  • Behavioural Supports Ontario team members
  • Seniors/Geriatric Mental Health team members
  • Managers &/or Educators from LongTerm
  • Care, Adult Day Services etc.
  • Nursing & Allied Health (e.g. SW, OT, PT, Pharmacists, SLP)
  • Family Health Teams
Anyone interested in being part of the CoP is welcome to join!  Please complete the survey to indicate your interest here.
