Databases - Systematic Reviews
These subscription databases are sources for locating systematic reviews and other evidence based materials.
JBI COnNECT+ (Clinical Online Network of Evidence for Care and Therapeutics) contains the JBI Library of Systematic Reviews, Best Practice Information sheets, Evidence Summaries and Evidence Based Recommended Practices.
The database offered by the Joanna Briggs Institute offers various evidence-based practice resources. The database includes:
Best Practice Information Sheet (BPIS) are short summaries based on the results and recommendations of systematic reviews. BPIS are easily disseminated and provide busy health professionals access to key issues and recommendations that have been collected from a large volume of material.
Consumer Information Sheets (CIS) are standardized summaries on a wide range of health care interventions and activities targeted at consumers of health care i.e. patients/residents/clients, relatives and carers. Each Consumer Information Sheet is based on the best available international evidence and each year, every existing entry is updated and new entries are added in response to requests from members/subscribers.
Evidence-Based Recommended Practice (EBRP) are interventions or procedures that describe and/or recommended certain practices on selected clinical topics. Recommended Practices are based on the best available evidence and each practice consists of an equipment list, a recommended practice, occupational health and safety provisions, and an adjoining evidence summary where evidence is available.
Evidence Summaries (ES) are short abstracts that summarise existing international evidence on common health care interventions and activities. Evidence summaries are based on structured searches of the literature and selected evidence-based health care databases.
Systematic Reviews (SR) are an analysis of all of the available literature (that is, evidence) and involves developing a question; establishing inclusion criteria; developing a strategy to comprehensively search for the evidence; appraising the quality of each paper; excluding papers of poor quality; extracting the findings of included papers; and synthesising the findings of included papers.
