About the Joanna Briggs Institute 

The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is an international research center based within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. JBI is among the acknowledged leaders in translational research, including methodology for conducting systematic reviews and evidence summaries. JBI collaborates internationally with more than 70 entities around the world, and the JBI methodology and tools provide rich opportunities for the generation, synthesis and implementation of evidence.

About the symposium

The symposium will provide information about the newly established Center of Evidence-Based Public Health at NMBU and highlight the usefulness of evidence synthesis. Further sessions will present the JBI approach to conducting qualitative and quantitative systematic reviews and examples of how to develop high quality search strategies. The symposium will also comprise an interactive panel discussion with stakeholders from different scientific fields where the audience can pose questions. The event is open to all interested in developing this competence.
