JBI's organisational mission is to promote and support evidence-informed healthcare, the editorial for this issue encapsulates this mission with a focus on 'Making implementation work.' Making it work spells out the opportunities available for you to step into an influential role on the quality and safety of practice, it spells out examples of impact by nurses and health professionals who saw a need, and decided that developing their capacity, skills and knowledge to fill the need was part of their job.

It's a model that works Why are you still doing the heavy lifting? Make implementation work for you, not the other way around!
