(New York, NY, 11February 2013) Wolters Kluwer Health, the exclusive distribution channel for the Joanna Briggs Institute’s (JBI) complete evidence-based practice (EBP) resources, now supports healthcare institutions who want to attain JBI’s Endorsement programme promoting high standards of evidence-based practice and policy. The addition of JBI’s EBP Management and Assessment tools on the Ovid platform makes it easier for institutions to facilitate the adoption of their EBP practice and evaluate and measure engagement on performance and patient outcomes.
Managed and administered by JBI, the program follows a set of endorsement criteria that demonstrate an institution’s commitment to the ongoing maintenance and enhancement of high quality service delivery based on an evidence-based approach to health care practice. Organizations that carry the JBI endorsement can demonstrate—to patients and their families, staff members, and the community-at-large—that their achievements in healthcare practice have been recognized by a body independent to their accrediting body and one that is widely regarded as world- leading and innovative voice in the advancement of evidence-based practice.
