Hip Fracture Setting Priorities for Effectiveness Research Report of a Study by a Committee of the INSTITUTE OF MEDICINE Division of Health Care Services Kim ~ Heithoff and Kathleen N. Lohr, editors NATIONAL ACADEMY PRESS Washington, D.C. 1990
NOTICE: The project that is the subject of this report was approved by the Governing Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The members of the committee responsible for this report were chosen for their special competencies and with regard for appropriate balance. This report has been reviewed by a group other than the authors according to procedures approved by a Report Review Committee consisting of members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The Institute of Medicine was chartered in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to enlist distinguished members of the appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. In this, the Institute acts under both the Academy's 1863 congressional charter responsibility to be an adviser to the federal government and its own initiative in identifying issues of medical care, research, and education. This workshop was supported by the Health Care Financing Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, under Basic Ordering Agreement Contract No. 500-89-0008.
