The Centre for Evidence-Informed Nursing and Healthcare (CEiNHC)

CEiNHC, in the School of Nursing, is a group of researchers, clinicians, librarians and students engaged in systematic reviews and other types of evidence synthesis using the JBI model of evidence based health care. Our aim is to improve nursing practice and education.

CEiNHC has been a JBI Affiliated Group since 2016 and achieved formal JBI Centre of Excellence status in 2021. CEiNHC has partnerships with Island Health, the SPOR Evidence Alliance and several nursing education institutions in western Canada.
