Our Name

Joanna Briggs was the first matron of Royal Adelaide Hospital. As the Institute is located at the hospital and had an original focus on nursing, it seemed fitting and appropriate to name it after an individual who had been involved in the hospital.

Our Logo

The JBI logo is a pebble dropping into water. It is a metaphor for the process of knowledge sharing and practice change and how a single act or piece of information can be a powerful catalyst for continuous change.

History

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Institute a book was published which overviews the establishment of the Joanna Briggs Institute and its rapid development as an international leader in the promotion and facilitation of evidence-based health care.
