The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading providers of evidence–based information. JBI and its collaborating entities are based at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, and promote and support the synthesis, transfer and utilization of evidence through identifying feasible, appropriate, meaningful and effective healthcare practices to assist in the improvement of healthcare outcomes globally.

The Institute’s EBP Database is a comprehensive range of resources including over 3,000 records across seven publication types. They include literature reviews, recommended practices and procedures, information guideline sheets, comprehensive systematic reviews and protocols, recommended practices, best practice information sheets and technical reports.
