From the Editors

Issue 4 highlights the interconnection between sustainability planning, the value of screening for improved clinical outcomes and showcases the JBI Model for evidence-based healthcare as contributing to sustainability and knowledge translation in diverse clinical settings. Adam Cooper is JBI Centre of Excellence Director at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) where the strategic organizational focus is implementation with sustainability of change through equipping and resourcing staff with knowledge, skills and resources to use the full cycle of the JBI Model for evidence-based healthcare in their implementation work.

Screening and assessment are critical components of expert clinical care; the ability to identify changes, detect deterioration is fundamental to quality and safety, patient wellbeing and continuity of care. Accurate screening and assessment using evidence-based guidelines improves the quality of care across different areas of care and is consistent across different geographic regions and clinical cultures. This is important; using the JBI Model helps groups and individuals to integrate screening and assessment with sustainable clinical decision-making. The case studies in this issue highlight the value of models in evidence implementation for promoting internal consistency and validity of knowledge translation in to clinical care.

As always, enjoy reading!
