Check out our new online resource: “The gold standard for nursing EBP”

AAMC has a wonderful new evidence-based practice (EPB) resource available for health care staff – the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) EBP Resources.

According to Joyce Miller, our medical librarian, she purchased this resource for nursing staff because the JBI is recognized as the global leader in evidence-based healthcare. Cathaleen Ley, PhD, RN, our director of Nursing Quality and Research, calls it “the gold standard in nursing EBP.” To access, log on to the Intranet and click on Ovid Books and Journals (under Medical Library). Click on the Joanna Briggs Institute EBP Database to begin searching.

The database is updated weekly, so you’ll always be able to access the latest in EBP.

What’s included? A comprehensive range of resources including over 3,000 records across seven publication types:

Evidence Summaries — Literature reviews that summarize existing international literature on common healthcare interventions and activities

Evidence-Based Recommended Practices — Database of procedures that describe and/or recommend practice on various clinical topics

Best Practice Information Sheets — Series of information guideline sheets produced specifically for practicing health professionals

Systematic Reviews — Comprehensive systematic reviews of international research literature completed by trained JBI reviewers

Consumer Information Sheets — Standardized summaries designed just for consumers of healthcare (patients, clients, and care providers)

Systematic Review Protocols — Developed by the Collaborating Centers of JBI, which are made up of international experts from over 40 countries from a range of health disciplines

Technical Reports — Documentation of all aspects of the development of Best Practice Information Sheets
