The Centre for Evidence-Based Public Health will advance the field of public health by providing evidence-based information that can contribute to the well-being of populations.
The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) was established in 1996, and is an international research centre based at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. JBI is among the acknowledged leaders in translational research in clinical care and therapeutics, including methodology for conducting systematic reviews and evidence summaries, and the delivery of tools and resources such as the JBI-SUMARI. The Institute collaborates internationally with over 70 entities around the world through the International Joanna Briggs Collaboration. The Institute and its collaborating entities promote and support the synthesis, transfer and implementation of evidence through identifying feasible, appropriate, meaningful and effective healthcare, policy and actions.
On 4 December 2018, the Centre for Evidence-Based Public Health became an affiliated group and member of the international Joanna Briggs Collaboration. The Centre is based at the Department of Public Health Science at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and is the first group in Norway affiliated to the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), and the third in a Nordic country.
The Centre has a particular focus on appraising the determinants of health, including individual, social and environmental factors, as well as cultural and structural conditions, mainly nationally but also globally. We strive to provide evidence-based information to public health issues that promote sustainable development and the well-being of populations.
The JBI methodology and tools provide rich opportunities for the generation, synthesis and implementation of evidence for strengthening public health efforts. By applying JBI methodologies, faculty members and students at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences can promote the development and application of knowledge to ensure evidence-based decisions, policy changes and actions that strengthen the health and well-being of populations. The Centre further endeavours to promote the use of the JBI approach within the Norwegian academic context. The core members of the Centre have mixed academic backgrounds and diverse research experience, making the Centre highly interdisciplinary.
Lansering av NORNESK
Over 100 deltakere var tilstede når Norsk Nettverk for Systematiske Kunnskapsoppsummeringer (NORNESK) arrangerte lanseringsseminar på OsloMet 10. oktober 2019. Åpning og innledning ble holdt av John-Arne Røttingen, direktør, Norges Forskningsråd og Gro Jamtvedt, dekan, Fakultet for helsevitenskap, OsloMet. Seminaret inneholdt en paneldebatt hvor muligheter og begrensninger for utarbeidelse og anvendelse av systematiske kunnskapsoppsummeringer ble diskutert under ledelse av professor Hans Lund (HVL). Deltakerne fikk også overvære spennende innlegg om ulike typer systematiske kunnskapsoppsummeringer og deres berettigelse og nytte.
