JBI gLOCAL Solution Room 2022: Global Evidence, Local Decisions
The JBI gLocal Solution Room is a week of events on evidence implementation held for, and by, practicing professionals across the globe from 6 – 12 June 2022. Comprising a series of dynamic and interactive sessions to provide pragmatic solutions to your challenges in getting evidence into practice in your clinical setting. Hosted by JBI Collaborating Entities in multiple countries and languages, events include webinars, seminars, symposia, workshops and more.
Each JBI gLocal Solution Room will include an esteemed panel of experts that will give you ‘real-world’ insights on evidence-implementation. As a ‘think tank’ they will then respond directly to participant questions around EBP challenges. The aim of all gLocal Solution Room events is to provide practical solutions and advice for getting evidence into practice in your clinical setting.
Each JBI gLocal Solution Room brings together clinicians, academics and policy makers interested in evidence-based healthcare and serve as a synchronized, collaborative, and widely accessible inter-regional space to promote evidence-based practice discussion and debate. JBI gLocal will enrich your knowledge base, and provide practical, accessible support and opportunity for all levels of knowledge and expertise in evidence implementation.
‘gLOCALization’ and JBI’s approach to global evidence-based healthcare
gLOCALization was popularized by the work of sociologist Roland Robertson, as he traces its roots from a Japanese business term “dochakuka” which emphasizes a global outlook adapted to local conditions. gLOCALization stresses the idea of contemporary globalization influencing the local level of society and the localization of globality.
What does gLOCALization have to do with evidence-based healthcare? The generation, synthesis, transfer and implementation of evidence are simultaneously global and local. For over 20 years JBI has been working to improve health outcomes in communities around the world by promoting and supporting the use of the best available evidence to inform decisions made at the point of care. JBI’s believes that evidence-based healthcare should be driven by the needs of global health, with the achievement of improved global health seen as both the goal (and endpoint) as well as the “driving force” of evidence-based healthcare. It also recognises that globalization both connects and impacts the health of people across the world.
JBI recognises, however, that healthcare is complex; that there is no single, linear approach that will work every time to move research evidence into policy and practice. Evidence will not always be feasible, or appropriate, or meaningful or even effective in a given context. JBI understands that the challenges in building an evidence base and capacity to implement evidence are diverse and vary between countries, regions, and cultures; and that differences in economics, clinical expertise, health policy, health systems and resources often require strategies and solutions that are unique and specific to their local context.
We therefore encourage and stand by the need for sharing and localising knowledge, and supporting and engaging with health professionals, scientists, academics and policymakers to take steps together to make a world of difference to health outcomes globally.
In strengthening the local use of global evidence, JBI recognises the importance of synchronized, accessible and inclusive spaces for international discussion and debate. The JBI gLOCAL Solution Room will look both at how global knowledge informs local evidence-based practices and how local experiences influence global thinking in evidence-based healthcare. The JBI gLOCAL Solution Room aims to catalyze these two forces, contributing to knowledge-sharing efforts globally.
