The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) offers the Evidence-Based Clinical Fellowship Program to help empower health professionals at any level to improve patient outcomes by providing you with proven approaches to implement evidence into practice.
This is a six-month work-place, evidence-based, implementation program which includes 2 x 5-day intensive training workshops and a workplace evidence implementation project over the intervening months.
The Program includes:
Week 1: June 17 - 21 workshop
Week 2: November 25 - 29 workshop

At the conclusion of the program, you will have a report ready to be published in a peer reviewed journal and accessible in international medical databases and google scholar.
IMPORTANT TOPIC INFORMATION for your registration!
During the registration process for this program, you will be asked to provide your ‘Evidence Implementation Project Topic’ by briefly describing the area you wish to investigate in your workplace project, including Population, Intervention/Condition & Setting. This should be an area in which you conduct a baseline clinical audit, implementation of evidence based strategies, and then follow-up clinical audit aimed at assessing outcomes. Eg. What is best practice in regards to non-pharmacological management of people with dementia in residential care facilities? You will also be required to identify the aims/outcomes you are hoping to achieve through your evidence implementation project. PLEASE HAVE THIS INFORMATION READY PRIOR TO REGISTRATION.

Previous research highlights includes work that focussed on the maintenance and improvement of animal welfare and welfare detection methods. During his PhD he developed and critically appraised a Judgment-Bias Test (JBT) as an effective and practical method of welfare assessment. Being able to accurately measure welfare state is an important consideration for all animal use in research and teaching. With JBT testing in its relative infancy multiple confounding variables and factors often overlooked in the scientific literature were considered and compared as part of Timothy’s PhD thesis. This led to the recommendation that although the JBT can accurately identify animal affect, the associated burdens that accompany its use suggest it to be a poor practical method of welfare assessment.
