Background

The Joanna Briggs Institute Aged Care Unit aims to enhance the quality of clinical care in aged care across Australia. It does this by producing high quality, reliable, evidence based information specific to the aged care sector and through the delivery of programs to support and enhance the use of this information in practice.

The Joanna Briggs Aged Care Unit is now jointly operated by the Joanna Briggs Institute and the Care Quality Association (ACQA).

The Aged Care Unit supports the Institute’s primary aim, which is to promote the synthesis, dissemination and uptake of evidence in aged care and to create standards in practice across the sector nationally that are built upon the best available evidence. In addition to this activity, The Joanna Briggs Institute Aged Care Unit also engages in complementary research that investigates how evidence can be implemented successfully in the aged care setting and identifying gaps between current practice and standards of practice.

The relationship with ACQA demonstrates the link between the Aged Care Accreditation Standards and Expected Outcomes with clinical evidence based practice.

Co-Investigators

Faculty at the School of Nursing, Queen's University are actively engaged in systematic reviews. As principal or co-investigators on reviews related to their research programs, as supervisors of graduate students, and as peer reviewers, they use and support the JBI methodology.

Background

Originally established jn 2004, QJBC is the Canadian collaborating centre of the international Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI). In 2009, supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), QJBC became a founding partner in an academic-policy consortium with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) and Accreditation Canada.

Firmly grounded in a framework of integrated knowledge translation (iKT), QJBC provides leadership, best practices, research, resources and collaborative opportunities in the science of synthesis and patient safety. By combining academic, clinical, investigational, and methodological expertise, QJBC is uniquely positioned to address KT requirements with patient safety in a variety of academic, policy and practice environments. An extensive environmental scan and documentary analysis conducted at the outset of the centre’s formation, coupled with an engaged advisory board have ensured that QJBC remains responsive to policy, practice, and consumer perspectives and priorities. QJBC investigators are currently responding to requests to facilitate a broad scope of patient safety evidence synthesis, adaptation, and implementation initiatives. We continue to build capacity within the university sector (faculty, health sciences students, library scientists), foster public engagement (e.g. tailoring review outputs) and provide support to additional Canadian JBI centres as they embrace our iKT approach and ultimately formalize their organizations as JBI Centres.

Background

Canadian home and community care leader, Saint Elizabeth Health Care (SEHC), has partnered with Queen’s Joanna Briggs Collaboration (QJBC) to establish the first Evidence Synthesis Group in North America as part of a prestigious international health research network.

As an Evidence Synthesis Group, SEHC conducts systematic reviews of nursing research from a community perspective in areas such as chronic disease management, palliative care, IV therapy and healthy work environments. With ongoing mentorship and support from QJBC, nurses synthesize their findings into a succinct statement that describes the current state of knowledge in a particular area of practice.

Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2008, Saint Elizabeth Health Care (SEHC) is a Canadian not-for-profit charitable organization that shares its talent and wisdom nationally and internationally through direct care and service, consultation, and education and e-learning to support the transformation of care for families, health organizations and communities. With a century of experience and a dynamic talent team of 4,000, the organization delivers more than three million home care visits annually and has been recognized as one of Canada's 50 Best Employers, Best Workplaces, and a Best Practice Spotlight Organization.

Background

The initiative to establishing the CCG was taken by the Danish Nursing Society (DNS). CCG’s main responsibility is to promote high quality evidence-based clinical guidelines.

The CCG is owned by DNS, which is an umbrella organisation for 19 scientific societies within nursing in Denmark. DNS works closely with The National Board of Health, medical scientific societies and other relevant partners within the health care sector in Denmark and the Nordic countries.

The Centre was initially established by and for nursing in Denmark. However, there is a great desire for the cooperation with other allied health care professions.

The foundation for CCG was laid out in 2005, when it became clear that the existing guidelines for nursing care varied in quality and were based on limited evidence. The guidelines were either not published or if published they had different recommendations for the same problem. This resulted in inappropriate use of resources. A clinical guideline is defined as "systematically developed statements that can be used by professionals and patients when they must decide on appropriate and proper healthcare performance in specific clinical situations".

The Centre for Clinical Guidelines is physically located at the Department of Health Science and Technology University of Aalborg. Primary stakeholders are nurses employed at the nation's hospitals and teachers of university colleges, but other health professions, are expected to eventually contribute to and benefit from the centre.

The location of the centre at the University of Aalborg creates an opportunity for increased cooperation between academic and clinical competencies. Moreover, the Centre will be able to identify new areas of research within nursing and other professions. 

Purpose

The Purpose of the Centre for Clinical Guidelines – Danish National Clearinghouse is:

  • To assess the quality (technical & methodological) of clinical guidelines in nursing
  • To establish and maintain a database of approved clinical guidelines
  • To be part of a national and international cooperation for the development of clinical guidelines
  • To identify areas for future research
  • To initiate and engage in research activities at a national and international level
  • To initiate and engage in educational activities designed to enhance the quality and development of clinical guidelines
  • To disseminate knowledge on existing clinical guidelines

The operation of the CCG is based on membership fees and income from other sources. Members of the CCG subscribe for membership for a period of five years. At the moment 30 out of 32 hospitals (5 university hospitals and 25 regional hospitals) support the CCG and all six university colleges are members of CCG. These colleges offer a Professional Bachelor Degree Programme (3½ years) to all allied hospital care staff.

Doha SIDRA (JBC)

Sidra Centre for Women's and Pediatric Evidence Based Health Care: a collaborating centre of the Joanna Briggs Institute

Located in Doha on Qatar Foundation's 2,500 acre Education City campus, the Sidra Medical and Research Center is expected to open in 2012. It will initially have 400 beds with infrastructure to enable expansion to 550 beds in a subsequent phase. Sidra Medical & Research Center is designed to encompass three essential missions:

  • World-class clinical care
  • Medical education
  • Biomedical research

Part of a collaborative effort entitled "one program in multiple institutions," Sidra will work closely with Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and Hamad Medical Corporation in regard to all three missions, raising the standard of health care throughout the country, particularly for Women and Children, and providing valuable opportunities for research and learning. The need for pediatric professionals to access independent advice on the effectiveness, appropriateness and cost benefits of specific health and care interventions; and to implement evidence and evaluate its impact has been recognised in most advanced economies, but current efforts to summarise, disseminate and establish systems for its utilisation are largely confined to other areas of acute care and primary health care. This centre seeks to fill this gap, by providing a service that will be the first of its kind internationally.

Background

The Joanna Briggs Institute and Peking University Health Science Center signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 2012 to establish the PUHSC Centre for Evidence-based Nursing in Beijing, China. It is the second Collaborating Centre of the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) in mainland China, and it is well positioned with supportive faculty members and abundant clinical resources from the teaching hospitals.

The purpose of this centre is to extend the evidence-based nursing practice to a wider population. It will contribute to the production of systematic reviews by faculty members, students, as well as nursing specialists in the affiliated hospitals and communities. Moreover, the Centre will strive to become a role model of generating and utilizing the evidence based practice in China. The centre will put efforts in providing the opportunity for clinicians and educators to share their expertise in research and Evidence-Based Practice, promoting dissemination and transferring knowledge generated by the Joanna Briggs Institute. Furthermore, the center will enrich the existing evidence with literature written in Chinese.

Giving the fact that Peking University School of Nursing has been the leading pioneer in China for years, the establishment of PUHSC Collaborating Centre will surely make an impact upon nursing practice in China. It will contribute to JBI in expanding their goal of producing systematic reviews, disseminating the knowledge, and ultimately implementing evidence based nursing practice globally.

Background

The Spanish Collaborating Centre (CCEIJB) (www.evidenciaencuidados.es) belongs to the Nursing and Healthcare Research Unit (Investén-isciii) at the Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII). Its scope is nationwide and almost all regions in Spain are involved: Andalucía, Asturias, Baleares, Canarias, Cantabria, Catalunya, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla y León, Galicia, La Rioja, Madrid, Murcia, País Vasco, Valencia y Navarra.

The CCEIJB contributes to improvements in the quality and outcomes of health care through promoting and supporting evidence-based practice. It does this through supporting the transfer, translation and utilization of evidence and undertaking research that advances these processes.

One of our main tasks is the translation of the reports and tools into Spanish in order to be a key for the Spanish speaking countries. Our principal aim is to help for the development, promotion and support of the evidence based approach to health care.

Background

The Cardiff School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies is one of the top ten nursing research departments in the UK. Following the most recent independent assessment of research quality in the UK, the School received a 4-rating, indicating that it is undertaking work of at least national levels of excellence. We are committed to the generation of high quality interdisciplinary research that elucidates complexity with clarity. Our aim is to produce theoretically informed empirical research of international levels of excellence which is relevant to education, policy and practice. We have strong collaborative links with NHS providers and a number of clinical staff are associated with our research programmes. The research of the staff and postgraduate students leads to the publication of high quality articles and books and informs the development of clinical and educational practice. Researchers and students benefit from the School's bespoke research facilities located in the City Centre.
