We are constantly tasked with the means by which to improve client care; such as enhancing quality, maintaining safety, increasing seamless transitions, and strategizing to predict how to prepare for the future of our client care needs.
The Professional Practice Network of Ontario (PPNO) is a network of healthcare leaders from organizations across Ontario, and other provinces. Our network includes individuals working in the fields of professional practice, a variety of clinical care areas, and regulatory colleges. Over the past 20 years, we have been connecting colleagues in the system who are asking the same questions, working on similar initiatives, or simply having discussions about policies and standards to reach best practices or align with accreditation standards.

The diversity and years of experience in the PPNO membership makes it a great platform to gather information and ask any questions related to professional practice. Every organization around Ontario tend to deal and manage very similar challenges and questions, this network offers great minds across the system to help tackle questions related to policy, teaching, quality, risk and safety. This network is where I start all my professional practice searches to see what the other organizations have already put in place. Amazing membership that are very willing to share!
PPNO membership is a great way to develop professional connections and to pick-up on developing professional practice trends and issues.
Being a part of a community of practice for Professional Practice is not only practical, at times it has been a lifeline. Over the past two years of constant transition and occasional (organised) chaos, the PPNO group has made it easy and reliable to share knowledge and information, and not waste time reinventing the wheel. From policy development to staffing models, product changes to pandemic planning and technology turnover, the network has been a highly depended-on and dependable resource for managers, educators, and practice leaders across the organisation.
"Being a member of the PPNO has be a tremendous asset to the work I do on a daily basis. The ability to have quick access to a provincial membership means I can conduct environmental scans on operations and practice issues with one email! I can also look through databases of past inquiries to get the information I need. The website has been updated and is very user friendly. The collaboration across the system is fantastic and once we are able to get back together again in person, I look forward to the education days that the PPNO has hosted in various locations across the province. I would highly recommend membership with this organization!"
