Welcoming our New Corporate Member – The Joanna Briggs Institute

Joanna Briggs Institute

We are very pleased to welcome the Joanna Briggs Institute as a new corporate member.

JBI is the international not-for-profit, research and development centre within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.  The Institute collaborates internationally with over 70 entities across the world. The Institute and its collaborating entities promote and support the synthesis, transfer and utilization of evidence through identifying feasible, appropriate, meaningful and effective healthcare practices to assist in the improvement of healthcare outcomes globally.

The Institute, is celebrating its 20th anniversary.  10 years ago it published the JBI model of evidence-based healthcare, outlining a developmental framework of evidence-based practice that attempted to situate healthcare evidence and its role and use within the complexity of practice settings globally. Guidance on how to conduct reviews of different evidence types was limited at that time and has come a long way in the last decade. With a focus on both the scientific and pragmatic elements of the translational cycle, this discussion paper published in the International Journal of Evidence-Based Healthcare explores the history of methodological development of the Institute and postures where to from here.

Now that we’re here, where are we? The JBI approach to evidence-based healthcare 20 years on
