Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Affiliated Group

Memorial University School of Nursing Collaboration for Evidence-Based Nursing and Primary Health Care:  A JBI Affiliated GroupSandraJBI

The Faculty of Nursing has a collaborative relationship with the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) based at the University of Adelaide, Australia.

The JBI is a world-wide collaboration to promote the synthesis, transfer, and utilization of research evidence to improve healthcare outcomes internationally.

Dr. Sandra Small, RN, PhD, (pictured above) is the JBI affiliate group convenor. The Faculty of Nursing also has a number of faculty members qualified to conduct systematic reviews of qualitative and quantitative research, according to the rigorous methods of the JBI.

By engaging in such work, the Faculty has an opportunity to make important contributions to health care and nursing practice. Below is a sample of some of our work:
