The JBI 20th Anniversary Conference held on 9–11 November was a recognition of the Institute’s endeavours over the last 20 years to improve global health using the best available evidence in health care. More than 200 delegates from JBI’s 59 collaborating centres from over 30 countries attended the event.
This symposium, aimed at the evidence-based healthcare enthusiast and methodologist, was a must for anyone interested in the varied approaches developed by JBI and its Collaboration to conducting systematic reviews across the broad spectrum of methodologies, including but not limited to effectiveness, diagnosis, umbrella/overview and qualitative review.
SCALING NEW HEIGHTS: Challenging the Status Quo. The colloquium was proudly co-organized by the three Joanna Briggs Institute Collaborating Centres in Singapore.
This JBI Convention has been designed to bring together a diverse international range of key stakeholders to focus specifically on the role of The Joanna Briggs Institute; to discuss, develop and promote the work of the Institute; and to shape our organisation’s future.
It is imperative that, as a global health and research community, we draw together our expertise in the fields of synthesis, transfer and utilisation, to be able to make the most of the information available to us. This event is an opportunity for us to channel our diverse skills and knowledge, to share, to network and to learn from each other.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to attend the 2011 JBI Convention and to establish whether an evidence-based approach to the delivery of health care will in fact improve global health outcomes.
Knowledge in Action: The Next Generation of Evidence-Based Practice
This Colloquium aimed to generate discussion and debate about the role and nature of evidence in practice and strategies for using this knowledge in pragmatic ways in real settings.
