JBI COnNECT+ is designed to meet the needs of service providers, health professionals and consumers with the skills and resources to enhance care by connecting the best available international evidence to the point-of-care.
JBI COnNECT+ is an online gateway to a collection of evidence-based resources and tools designed to assist in the clinical decision-making process and to support best practice.
The content of JBI COnNECT includes evidence summaries and evidence based recommended practices. Content is updated annually to ensure that the information presented on COnNECT is up to date and congruent with the evidence. JBI Reviewers are external to the institute and are paid a fee to update and develop JBI-COnNECT content. The necessary information that a JBI reviewer requires is included in this page, and includes templates, payment information, registration forms and a contributor’s handbook.
