On August 1, access to the Joanna Briggs Institute Evidence Based Practice (JBI EBP) database became available. The Australia-based Joanna Briggs Institute is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading providers of evidence–based information and tools to help healthcare professionals provide the best possible patient care.
The JBI EBP database covers a wide range of medical, nursing, and health science specialties and allows you to search for summarized and appraised evidence to inform your practice. Resources include over 3,000 records across seven publication types: Evidence Based Recommended Practices, Evidence Summaries, Best Practice Information Sheets, Systematic Reviews, Consumer Information Sheets, Systematic Review Protocols, and Technical Reports.
The JBI EBP database has ten tools that you can use for appraisal and implementation, quality improvement, and research. Examples include:
- JBI Journal Club – a tool for storing and appraising articles for journal clubs.
- JBI PACES – an online program that assists with clinical audits and practice changes.
- JBI Rapid – a process to analyze articles using a checklist.
- Manual Builder – tool for creating evidence-based manuals based on the needs of your organization.
- Pamphlet Builder – tool to develop evidence-based pamphlets for your patients.
