BSO Evaluations

Qualitative Evaluation (2015 - 2021):
Every quarter, the BSO Provincial Coordinating Office collects qualitative stories from BSO teams across the province. These stories often depict individuals’ experiences being supported by BSO alongside the outcomes and impact of being referred. Also featured in the stories are quality improvement initiatives, enhanced system partnerships and many other key accomplishments from BSO team members. In 2018, the BSO Provincial Coordinating Office engaged Morton Chang Consulting to conduct a thematic review of these stories for the purpose of identifying BSO emerging, promising and best practices that could be adapted and spread to other teams across the province.
