From page 1...
... Established in 1970, the IOM is the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences, which was chartered under President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Nearly 150 years later, the National Academy of Sciences has expanded into what is collectively known as The National Academies, which comprises the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the National Research Council, and the IOM.
From page 2...
... Before any IOM report is released, it undergoes extensive peer review by a second group of experts, which remains anonymous to the authoring committee until the study is published. For nearly 40 years, this process has resulted in sound IOM reports providing policy makers, the health professions, and the American people with objective advice grounded in evidence.
From page 3...
... For more than three decades, the IOM has managed The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellowships Program, which is designed to develop the capacity of outstanding mid-career health professionals in academic and community-based settings to assume leadership roles in health policy and management. The body of this book illustrates the work of IOM committees in selected, major areas in recent years, followed by a description of IOM's convening and collaborative activities and fellowship programs.
