The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is a not-for-profit research and development centre within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide with more than 70 Collaborating Entities across the world. The Institute and its collaborators are driven by a united desire to contribute to the improvement of health outcomes globally and to support and recognise organisations and individuals driven to practice and promote healthcare informed by the highest quality and most up to date evidence.
A world in which the best available evidence is used to inform policy and practice to improve health in communities globally.
To facilitate the synthesis, transfer and implementation of the best available evidence to ensure the feasibility, appropriateness, meaningfulness and effectiveness of health policy and practice.
In undertaking this mission, the Institute is guided by core values that include mutual respect between nations, professions and cultures, professionalism and ethical conduct; and a robust and transparent approach to the production of high quality, accurate information for health professionals and citizens internationally.
The JBI Model of Evidence-based Healthcare
Culture - Capacity - Communication - Collaboration
Organisations and individuals endorsed by the Institute are at the forefront of cultural change in the healthcare industry and each member of this important network is critical to helping us achieve our vision and mission.
The JBI Endorsement Program is based on the premise that through collaboration, cooperation and the exchange of ideas, challenges to the provision of feasible, effective, appropriate, and meaningful healthcare can be met and conquered.
As such, JBI Endorsement is more than a mark of honour, it is an opportunity to be a part of the JBI’s global evidence-based healthcare mission.
I trust that you will find your experience of collaboration with JBI as a JBI Endorsed Organisation a fruitful and rewarding one, and I look forward to working with you as part of this diverse and innovative group.
