Congratulations 2015 JBI CSRT graduates!
25 participants from across Canada successfully completed the summer Joanna Briggs Institute Comprehensive Systematic Review Training workshop in Kingston, July 6-10, 2015. The Queen’s Joanna Briggs Collaboration (QJBC) team including Dr. Christina Godfrey, Dr. Rosemary Wilson, Dr. Kim Sears and Amanda Ross-White delivered this intensive program which teaches a structured methodology for synthesizing quantitative and qualitative evidence. Attendees included health sciences faculty and students from Canadian university and college nursing programs, practice leaders, library scientists and provincial and federal government public health agency policy makers. Graduates are certified to submit systematic reviews to the peer reviewed journal: Joanna Briggs Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports (JBIDSRIR).
Established at the School of Nursing (SON) in 2004, the Queen’s Joanna Briggs Collaboration has evolved into an active and productive knowledge translation model supporting the synthesis and use of best evidence for practice. As principal investigators, supervisors of graduate students, clinical practice partners, and as JBI designated peer reviewers, SON faculty provide expertise in using the rigorous JBI methodology for systematic review.
