JBI Model of Evidence-based Healthcare

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