JBI Database, Journal, and Tools Package

This unique combination from the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) of evidence-rich content plus a set of eight online evidence-based practice (EBP) appraisal, implementation, and management tools is designed to help nurses, physicians, practitioners and healthcare managers implement an effective EBP program and provide patient care based on the best available evidence.
