The Wales Centre For Evidence Based Care: A JBI Centre of Excellence

JBI is a global organisation promoting and supporting evidence based decisions that improve health and health service delivery.

We promote evidence-based practice through the development and evaluation of internationally excellent systems for evidence appraisal, translation and utilisation.

As a JBI Collaborating Entity, we have an inclusive approach to evidence in order to produce usable, real-world clinical guidelines.

We offer consultancy and guidance on the production of systematic reviews and implementation projects using the JBI appraisal, implementation and management tools.

These are specifically designed to assist healthcare professionals in implementing evidence-based practice and provide the best possible patient care. We can deliver a bespoke one-day training programme, ‘Translating evidence into Practice,’ which can be delivered in your workplace for a minimum of six delegates.


We work closely with the following organisations:
