[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] The Global BPG Network is one component of the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario's (Canada) strategic vision to support the uptake of best practice guidelines provincially, nationally and internationally. It is a web-based network of individuals and organizations that have implemented one or more of RNAOs best practice guidelines. The aim of the Global BPG Network is to support the sharing of ideas and experiences of Global Network members related to guideline implementation within healthcare and educational settings around the world. This presentation will describe the social networking principles on which the Global BPG Network is based, and how these theories are integrated within a web-based networking resource. Early experiences with other web-based networking approaches developed for nurses informed the development of the Global BPG Network, and these key learnings will be highlighted. Discussion will include how the Global BPG Network is being used by individuals and organizations to share exchange knowledge, experiences and ideas related to guideline implementation, evaluation and their impact on health care outcomes. Participants will gain an appreciation of this unique approach to supporting uptake of evidence-based practice and building capacity through international collaboration and the sharing of implementation experiences within and across borders.
