The Joanna Briggs Institute
The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is an independent, international, not-for-profit research and development organisation based in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.
At its core, JBI is concerned with improving health outcomes in communities globally by promoting and supporting the use of the best available evidence to inform decisions made at the point of care. This work begins and ends with the needs of those working in and using healthcare services. We seek to respond to their questions and provide high quality, reliable information that is pragmatic and useful where it counts.
To achieve this, we work with universities and hospitals from across the globe through the Joanna Briggs Collaboration. In doing so we ensure that the research evidence we seek to synthesize, transfer and implement is culturally inclusive and relevant across the diversity of healthcare internationally. This also includes consideration of a broad range of evidence as it relates to the feasibility, appropriateness, meaningfulness and effectiveness of healthcare interventions.
In addition to this important collaborative work we offer a range of systematic review and clinical audit tools, evidence-based point of care resources and varied educational programs to further support those who seek to access, appraise or use research evidence.
In addition to their various tools and informational pages, is this resource page (database, journals, tools, & more) dedicated to Evidence Based Practice:
