A Short History of a Big Idea: The Joann...a Briggs Institute 1996-2006
This book 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. Medical, nur...sing and allied health practices have traditionally been founded on knowledge and expertise handed down from predecessors. It is now recognised that effective, appropriate professional practice is based on sound evidence provided through research. Today the JBI remains the only organization in the world actively involved in the synthesis, transfer and utilisation of evidence for clinical decision-making. A Short History of a Big Idea is a record and a celebration of the Institute’s evolution, its successes and its failures, its connection with service, its methodological development and its international growth across 38 countries in all five continents of the world.
Innovation for Improved Practice (eviden...ce-based health care)
This Chapter discusses how by 2002 information overload and nihilism had become a very real problem for all types of practitioners. The Institute recognised that it was not enough to provide resourc...es and technology for researchers; clinicians and students also needed these facilities. As the evidence-based approach gathered momentum and the volume of information intensified, it was clear that clinicians also needed to understand how to evaluate the quality of evidence. The evidence-based movement was dictating that practice be supported by evidence; a new skill base was required within the industry that would break down the barriers between science (research) and applied science (practice). Critical appraisal was becoming a vital component of health care practice if clinicians were to become more effective decision makers in practice.
