Wales Centre for Evidence-Based Care (WCEBC)
The Wales Centre for Evidence-Based Care aims to promote evidence-based practice through the development and evaluation of internationally excellent systems for evidence appraisal, translation and utilisation. It is a collaborating centre of the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI).
Clinicians and academics work collaboratively on review projects in order to promote the acquisition of research utilisation skills and foster an understanding of the relationship between evidence, guidelines and decision making in practice. As a JBI Collaborating Centre we have an inclusive approach to evidence in order to produce useable "real world" clinical guidelines.
