The Institute aims to improve the health status of the global population through the delivery of health care that is based on the best available evidence. It translates evidence into action at the legislative, policy, health system and clinical practice levels.

Research Focus

Translational research is a process derived from the need to ensure that our best knowledge is used in policy and practice to improve service delivery and health outcomes. Our research service offers a range of programs and strategies that address gaps in the research translation cycle with a particular focus on the gap between clinical application and the development of routine clinical/public health actions or policy.

Research Program

Building on the Joanna Briggs Institute Model of Evidence Based Healthcare and using our comprehensive suite of automated online data collection and analysis systems, the research team in the Institute designs and conducts projects following our Translation Research Model that incorporates:

  • Synthesising evidence
  • Situational analyses
  • Investigating gaps
  • Conducting evidence implementation/utilisation

Partnerships and Engagement

Translational research relies on meaningful engagement between researchers and the end users of research. The Joanna Briggs Institute supports the translation of knowledge from research into policy and practice through an ongoing, iterative and interactive process undertaken between all stakeholders. We work to create effective and collaborative working relationships with citizens, industry and government to deliver research projects that meets the needs of our community.
