The Centre for Evidence Based Healthcare

The Centre for Evidence Based Healthcare

The Nottingham Centre for Evidence Based Healthcare (CEBHC) is part of The University of Nottingham’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

We are a vibrant, growing Centre made up of experienced academic researchers, information scientists and clinical practitioners, all specialising in evidence synthesis.

Together, we publish systematic reviews using a variety of methodologies, registered through the JBI and Cochrane Collaboration, with the aim of improving healthcare practices for the benefit of patients and practitioners all over the world.

Centre of Evidence Based Healthcare

Our Centre has three main areas of activity:

  • Collaborating with faculty research groups to provide methodological input for research programmes.
  • Collaborating with clinical partners to tackle established clinical priorities through evidence synthesis and implementation.
  • Delivering high-quality training on systematic reviewing and evidence based healthcare. Our expert team delivers short courses and bespoke workshops locally, nationally and internationally. 

Our vision statement

To engage with health professionals, decision-makers, and researchers to pursue excellence and innovation in evidence synthesis and knowledge exchange to build capacity and impact health globally.

The JBI’s  mission is to promote and support the synthesis, transfer and utilisation of evidence by identifying feasible, appropriate, meaningful and effective healthcare practices that help to improve healthcare outcomes globally.

We are a founding member of the JBI European Group which shares ideas in evidence based research, creates networking opportunities and supports early career researchers. Through this collaboration, we have secured full JBI membership for all staff at the Nottingham University Hospital Trust, giving them free access to the JBI library and evidence based practice tools.
