Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Evidence-Based Practice database
Joanna Brigs Institute (JBI) database has been added to the library's evidence-based practice resources online. Its systematic reviews complement those included in the Cochrane database. Published by the international not-for-profit research and development organization, it develops evidence in various formats for nursing, allied health, and medical professionals. It also supports information for patients. Documents include:
- Evidence Summaries - literature reviews that summarize existing international literature on common healthcare interventions
- Evidence-Based Recommended Practices - databases of procedures that describe and/or recommend practice on various clinical topics
- Best Practice Information Sheets - series of information guideline sheets produced specifically for practicing health professionals
- Systematic Reviews - comprehensive systematic reviews of international research literature
- Consumer Information Sheets - standardized summaries for patients and other clients
- Systematic Review Protocols - developed by experts from more 40 countries
- Technical Reports - documentation of all aspects of the development of Best Practice Information Sheets
There is no mobile application for this database, but it may be accessed on IntraLee (databases) without passwords and remotely via Athens or Citrix. In order to use JBI tools, a user has to first create his/her account on JBI website.
