More information:

Joanna Briggs Institute EBP Resources on OVID is a database of over 5,000 full text documents, including Best Practices and Systematic Reviews.  These resources can be used to illustrate the 7 Steps of Evidence Based Practice Research to students.  JBI has even developed a Faculty User Guide to assist you in assigning research to your students, so they can learn the fundamentals of research and how evidence guides decision making in practice Click here for a video demonstration   

The database provides access to tools for implementing evidence based practice, such as JBI TAP (for small–scale qualitative studies execution), JBI PACES (for clinical audits and change practice), etc. More information here.

 The database also contains the 6 document types listed below.  The database is updated multiple times monthly with any new research that is developed by JBI.
·        Best Practice Information Sheet (BPIS) are short summaries based on the results and recommendations of systematic reviews. BPIS are easily disseminated and provide busy health professionals access to key issues and recommendations that have been collected from a large volume of material.
·        Best Practice Technical Reports are provided as a complementary publication to document all aspects of the development of Best Practice Information Sheets.
·        Consumer Information Sheets (CIS) are standardized summaries on a wide range of health care interventions and activities targeted at consumers of health care i.e. patients/residents/clients, relatives, and carers. Each Consumer Information Sheet is based on the best available international evidence and each year, every existing entry is updated and new entries are added in response to requests from members and subscribers.
·        Evidence-Based Recommended Practice (EBRP) are interventions or procedures that describe and/or recommended certain practices on selected clinical topics. Recommended Practices are based on the best available evidence and each practice consists of an equipment list, a recommended practice, occupational health and safety provisions, and an adjoining evidence summary where evidence is available.
·        Evidence Summaries (ES) are short abstracts that summarize existing international evidence on common health care interventions and activities. Evidence summaries are based on structured searches of the literature and selected evidence-based health care databases.
·        Systematic Reviews (and protocols) (SR) are an analysis of all of the available literature (that is, evidence) and involves developing a question; establishing inclusion criteria; developing a strategy to comprehensively search for the evidence; appraising the quality of each paper; excluding papers of poor quality; extracting the findings of included papers; and synthesizing the findings of included papers.
