The BSO-DOS© (Behavioural Supports Ontario-Dementia Observation System): Sharing Implementation Strategies!

About the Presenters:

Lori Schindel Martin, RN, PhD, GNC(C) is a mixed methods researcher, educator and advanced practice nurse. She is a Professor in the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing, Faculty of Community Services, Ryerson University, Toronto, ON. Lori’s background includes over 25 years as a clinical nurse specialist in gerontological practice in acute care, complex continuing care and long-term care. During this period she worked with older clients in nephrology and renal dialysis as well as geriatric mental health. Lori has a passion for contributing to the development of clinical knowledge gained through ground-level, applied clinical research. Lori believes that older people living with chronic illnesses such as dementia deserve inter-professional care that is person-centred, humanistic, evidence-informed, tailored, safe and effective. Lori’s program of scholarship focuses on the development of theory-driven, practical educational programs that enhance best practices related to responsive behavior such as reluctance for bathing and sexual expression. She was lead curriculum developer and editor for Gentle Persuasive Approaches and a Co-Chair of the 2016-17 revision panel of the RNAO’s 3Ds best practice guidelines. Lori has presented on topics relevant to the health care of older people at national and international conferences. Lori is President of the Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association (CGNA).

Debbie Hewitt Colborne, RN, MScN, GNC(C) is an Advanced Practice Nurse with experience and expertise working with older adults within long-term care, the community and hospital settings. Her current work at the Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) Provincial Coordinating Office is centred on activities that support and advance the BSO initiative.
