The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation commissioned the Institute of Medicine to convene a comittee to study ways to better identify the most effective health care services. The resulting report, published in January 2008, is an important call to action: "The central premise underlying the report is that decisions about the care of individual patients should be based on the current best evidence available, and that having a single body charged with evaluating and sorting information will help to clarify for physicians, health care providers, and patients which evidence is valid." Read the report online or purchase for the National Academies Press and/or listen to podcasts.

Because of the interactive nature of the workshop, we limit seats.
