The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is an international not-for-profit, research and development centre within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. The Joanna Briggs Institute collaborates with groups in developing or low resourced countries where language, technology, geography and finance present significant challenges to the provision of healthcare. We are working with these groups to create an appropriate knowledge base to support health decisions and to make this knowledge readily available at the point of care. www.joannabriggs.org

The Joanna Briggs Foundation (JBF) has been established to raise funds that enable health professionals from developing countries to undertake the JBI Evidence-based Clinical Fellowship program. The JBI Evidencebased Clinical Fellowship Program is a six-month workplace, evidence-based, implementation program involving 2 x 10-day intensive training workshops in the Joanna Briggs Institute in Adelaide, and conducting a work place evidence implementation project in the intervening months.

JBI Developing Countries Clinical Fellows
Funding from the Joanna Briggs Foundation has enabled JBI to offer scholarships for health professionals of exceptional merit from various developing countries. These professionals participate in the JBI Evidence-based Clinical Fellowship program to learn about evidence-based healthcare and to support a project for implementing evidence in their own setting.
These participants have had the opportunity to learn how to:
• Develop and engage in processes to further develop their leadership skills and strengths
• Discuss and describe the effectiveness of current approaches to the implementation of evidence based practice
• Conduct clinical audits and develop and execute strategies to implement evidence-based practice

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at jbieducation@adelaide.edu.au

We look forward to seeing you!
