QJBC workshop at the 2014 Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) Symposium

April 6-8, 2014; Hilton Lac-Leamy, Gatineau, Quebec

April 6, 2014 Workshop PM-2: a half day session with Amanda Ross-White, Library Specialist; Dr. Margaret Harrison, Director ; and Dr. Christina Godfrey, Deputy Director of the Joanna Briggs Collaboration, Queen’s University

Educational Objective: Participants will learn about the importance of considering the feasibility, appropriateness, and meaningfulness of evidence, along with efficacy, and will learn how to use concept mapping and conceptual frameworks to better synthesize evidence.

The Joanna Briggs Institute is an international collaboration focused on delivering high quality synthesized evidence to the point of care through over 70 centres worldwide. As Canada’s only JBI Centre, Queen’s Joanna Briggs Centre will discuss how the unique JBI model focuses not just on the effectiveness of health care interventions, but the feasibility, meaningfulness and appropriateness of the intervention. This approach is critical to the actual uptake of practice evidence as it builds on effectiveness research to include evidence relevant to the context.

This workshop will provide a brief introduction to the JBI model, discuss how concept mapping and the use of conceptual frameworks can provide greater clarity to synthesis of evidence and how guidelines can be adapted to local context, ensuring health care interventions are actually adopted at the point of care.
