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.


  • Promote evidence-based health care and education within the WCEBC jurisdiction.
  • Develop the science of implementation.
  • Lead a programme of research on evidence-based practice development and evaluation.
  • Conduct internationally excellent reviews and strategic research using multidisciplinary collaborative teams as appropriate.
  • Participate fully in the collaborative activities of JBI.
  • Undertake consultancy on evidence-based decision making, practice and processes.
  • Provide a focus for the promotion of a shared organisational culture in which nurses in education and practice are fully engaged with evidence underpinning best practice.
