To achieve sustainable outcomes in global health, a global commitment to the sharing of knowledge and resources through international partnerships is critical
JBI Adelaide GRADE Centre
The Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) reflects ‘best practice’ in terms of clinical guideline development and has been endorsed by organisations across the globe. The JBI Adelaide GRADE Centre is the first GRADE Centre in Australia and New Zealand, and was established in partnership with the GRADE Working Group, an international alliance of clinicians and researchers who have developed a leading approach to rating research quality and guideline development. The Centre's mission is to train, promote, disseminate and implement GRADE approaches within and across the systematic review and guideline development community globally. The JBI Adelaide GRADE Centre offers training in GRADE methods, and expert GRADE consultancy services for guideline development and systematic reviews.
JBI has a working partnership with Cochrane that brings together the synergy of visions, missions, goals, values, principles, and products of both organisations who believe that systematic and rigorous approaches to research synthesis improve the knowledge base for making decisions in healthcare, and that this leads to better-informed choices by policymakers, practitioners, and members of the public. Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health. Cochrane contributors - 37,000 from more than 130 countries - work together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conﬂicts of interest.
GIN is a global network founded in 2002. It has grown to comprise 94 organisations and 77 individual members representing 46 countries from all continents. The network supports evidence-based healthcare and improved health outcomes by reducing inappropriate variation throughout the world. Its mission is to lead, strengthen and support collaboration and work within the guideline development, adaptation and implementation community. JBI partnered with GIN to deliver the GIN & JBI 2019 conference in Adelaide in 2019.
In 2020 the ANZ regional group of GIN established the ANZ Guideline Network, which is an inclusive and collaborative network of people with a common interest in improving the health of Australians and New Zealanders through development and implementation of evidence-based guidance and guidelines. JBI facilitates the ANZ regional group and manages the administration of the network, development of the quarterly newsletter and webinars.
