UCQ - Middle East's First Academic Best Practice Spotlight Organization (AcBPSO).


  • Academic BPSO is responsible for leading curriculum development using Best Practice Guidelines (BPGs) as a foundational tool for teaching & preparing nursing students to make evidence informed decisions that can lead to the best patient and family outcomes. Preparing nurses for evidence-based care in Qatar is a key outcome for graduates of the University of Calgary in Qatar
  • Students who learn about Evidence Based Practice (EBP) and BPGs in their nursing education can transfer this knowledge when they transition to their career as a registered nurse. Students can see how research & evidence is transferred to the bedside.
  • In our curriculum, BPGs are threaded into all theoretical & practice-based courses to support student learning about how to identify, access, select, apply, and evaluate evidence.
