Background

The Centre has its headquarters at the University of São Paulo and will be directed by the School of Nursing and by the School of Public Health, in partnership with the University Hospital of the University of São Paulo.

The Brazilian Centre represents the efforts of these three units to promote evidence-based health care aimed at professionals who work in research, teaching, assistance, and management, policy makers, and health system users.

Strong academic leadership in preparing health professionals; testified capability to conduct research and to prepare researchers; and the partnership with health institutions and health governmental organizations are the basis for the Brazilian Centre work.

Centre Objectives

  • Promote the evidence-based health care perspective throughout the Brazilian territory
  • Facilitate communication among professionals, institutions, organizations, and health system users about evidence-based health care
  • Foster qualification of health professionals (clinicians, managers, and policy makers) in evidence-based health care
  • Facilitate the access of Brazilian professionals, students, and health users to resources for production, synthesis, transference and use of evidence
  • Promote knowledge on evidence-based health care
  • Promote the development of primary research, based on gaps identified by systematic reviews
  • Participate in Collaborating activities of the Joanna Briggs Institute
  • Support national and international initiatives to promote the evidence-based health care

Co-Investigators

Faculty at the School of Nursing, University of Victoria, 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 launched in 2012, the UVic School of Nursing Centre for Evidence-Informed Nursing and Health Care (CEiNHC) received the formal status of JBI Affiliate Centre, July 2016. With a view to contributing to the quality of health care, UVic SON JBI CEiNHC will establish and maintain a program of high quality systematic reviews and other types of evidence synthesis. Students, faculty, and clinician stakeholders identify relevant and meaningful topics and questions for systematic reviews, then collaboratively pursue evidence synthesis work. To date in support of this work we have developed partnerships with The Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon, and Island Health (previously Vancouver Island Health Authority). To remain responsive to our practice partners, students and community groups we require flexibility in our area of focus. Specific areas of focus include:

  1. Evidence synthesis to guide practice improvement projects (as identified by our practice partners).
  2. Health promotion and community-based research.
  3. Nursing leadership and health system improvement.
  4. Nursing education and educational evaluation.
  5. Health equity and nursing with rural, remote, northern & indigenous communities.

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 theCanadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), QJBC became a founding partner in an academic-policy consortium with theCanadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) andAccreditation 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

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.

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.
