The Teesside Centre for Evidence-Based Practice is z Joanna Briggs Institute Centre of Excellence (JBI). The key aim of the JBI is to promote and support the synthesis, transfer and utilisation of evidence to assist in the improvement of healthcare outcomes, through its global network of collaborating centres.
At Teesside we focus on addressing important clinical and public health questions through the synthesis and transfer of evidence through our systematic review work programme. Our team consists of information specialists, statisticians, practitioners and health researchers who work on a range of reviews to support clinical and public health policy and practice.
We work closely with clinical partners, especially those from South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, to ensure that our reviews address clinically important topics. We also have strong working relationship with public health policy and practice partners and have also undertaken systematic and rapid reviews to inform and support public health decision making. Once each review is complete, we continue to work with our clinical and public health partners to translate the findings into practice.

Anyone wishing to register a review title with the Teesside Affiliate Centre is encouraged to approach the Director or Deputy Director to discuss their proposed title and systematic review. In discussion with the proposed lead reviewer, the Director or Deputy Director will assess whether:
If it is clear that all of the above elements are in place, the Director and Deputy Director will work with the lead reviewer, and their team, to draft the title and the review protocol.
If any of these elements are not in place, the Director and Deputy Director will endeavour to support the lead reviewer to address the deficits where possible.
The users of our work are varied and include clinicians, patients, family/carers and the general public. We therefore aim to include relevant representation on each review and are always keen to hear from anyone interested in joining our review teams. If you are interested or would like to know more about how we work with our review users please contact the Director or Deputy Director.
