Mandy McGlynn, Sherra Solway, Mandy Lowe, Jo-Anne Howe, Debbie Hebert and Karima Velji


Toronto Rehabilitation Institute developed its Clinical Best Practice Model and Process (TR-CBPMP) to facilitate a systematic and consistent approach to best practice with the goal of shortening the path between best knowledge and clinical care and linking this process to patient needs and outcomes. The TR-CBPMP guides clinicians, inter-professional teams, administrators and leaders in identifying patient needs, reviewing present practice, determining best practice priorities, analyzing gaps, preparing for and implementing best practice, evaluating patient-based outcomes and sustaining the best practice. The TR-CBPMP has been used successfully to develop program-specific, profession-specific and organization-wide best practices.
