Introduction to Evidence-Based Healthcare and the Systematic Review of Evidence using the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Model

Contact: Daphne Stannard and Michelle Henley and Adam Cooper
Contact: 4153531925 Fax: 4153538561 - http://www.ucsfnursing.org - Northern California and Nevada region
This workshop is designed to introduce medical librarians to evidence-based healthcare and the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) model, tools, and resources. In particular, the course will highlight the spectrum of clinical inquiry activities and focus on evidence synthesis and systematic reviews, as well as evidence implementation and embedding evidence in clinical practice. While there are other leading sources of evidence-based information, such as the Cochrane and Campbell databases, JBI has a pluralistic notion of evidence that speaks to the complexity of nursing practice. The content will be reinforced through interactive small group activities, including: solving a clinical problem through a clinical inquiry project; selecting relevant studies for a systematic review protocol; and critically appraising selected articles for possible inclusion into a systematic review. Participants who complete this course will be registered as having successfully completed part 1 of JBI's three part international training program.
