The Joanna Briggs Institute
Better Evidence, Better Outcomes
The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is an independent, international, not-for-profit research institute 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. JBI seeks to respond to their questions and provide high quality, reliable information that is pragmatic and useful where it counts.
To achieve this, JBI works with 70+ Collaborating Entities from across the globe, that make up the Joanna Briggs Collaboration (JBC). The JBC is the largest global collaboration to integrate EBHC within a theory informed model that brings together academic entities with hospitals and health systems. The functions of the JBC are directed toward the knowledge needs of local clinicians and consumers, with each Collaborating Entity leading evidence based initiatives in their region, country, state or specialty.
In working with the JBC we ensure that the research evidence we seek to synthesise, 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 related to the feasibility, appropriateness, meaningfulness and effectives of healthcare interventions.
In addition to this important collaborative work JBI offers a range of tools, resources and educational opportunities to further support those who seek to access, appraise or use research evidence.
