JBI - also known internationally as "Joanna Briggs Institute" - promotes and supports the use of the best available evidence to inform decisions made at the point of care.

JBI is an international, not-for-profit organisation operating more than 70 collaborating entities (known as the JBI Collaboration) around the world. The organisation focuses on improving health outcomes globally by researching evidence-based healthcare and disseminating resources, tools and publications relating to evidence-based healthcare. JBI is based in Adelaide, South Australia. It was established by Royal Adelaide Hospital as an affiliated institute of the University of Adelaide in 1996 and is now based in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide in Australia.

The JBI Approach to Evidence-based Healthcare[edit]

JBI's approach to evidence-based healthcare is unique. JBI considers evidence-based healthcare as decision-making that considers the feasibility, appropriateness, meaninfulness and effectiveness of healthcare practices[1].

The best available evidence, the context in which care is delivered, the individual patient and the professional judgement and expertise of the health professional inform this process. JBI regards evidence-based healthcare as a cyclical process. Global healthcare needs, as identified by clinicians or patients/consumers, are addressed through the generation of research evidence that is effective, but also feasible, appropriate and meaningful to specific populations, cultures and settings[2]. It is this unique approach that is encompassed in the JBI Model of Evidence-based Healthcare[3]

The JBI Model[edit]

The JBI Model of Evidence-based Healthcare was developed in 2005 and updated in 2016[4].

The inner circle represents the pebble of knowledge while the 'inner wedges' provide the Institute’s conceptualisation of the steps involved in the process of achieving an evidence-based approach to clinical decision-making. The 'outer wedges' operationalise the component parts of the model and articulate how they might be actioned in a pragmatic way. The arrows indicate that the flow can be bi-directional[5].

Evidence-based Practice Resources[edit]

JBI has developed evidence-based practice resources and publications which have been drived by the needs of health professionals and consumers worldwide.

Resources include the JBI Evidence Implementation Handbook; JBI Reviewers Manual (JBI's comprehensive guide to conducting systematic reviews); and Critical Appraisal Tools (includes checklists for randomised control trials, qualitative research, economic evaluations and prevalence studies).

Other evidence-based practice resources and publications, such as JBI SUMARI,can be accessed via EBP Resources.

History[edit]

For over 20 years JBI has supported health professionals to improve health outcomes globally and create ripples of change by providing the best available evidence to inform clinical decision making.

JBI was established in 1996 by the Royal Adelaide Hospital and the University of Adelaide,[6] and takes its name from Joanna Briggs, who was the first matron of the Royal Adelaide Hospital[7].

JBI is now a global collaboration of health scientists and clinicians that operates as an independent, not-for-profit research and development organisation that seeks to improve global health.
