At the Frontlines of Health Research

Since 1972, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has been the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health. The Foundation is dedicated to educating the public about health care innovation through findings from the projects it supports. This book, the first in a new series, offers you an in-depth look at programs funded by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Written for health care professionals and interested members of the public, the series will provide useful lessons to leaders and educators as they develop plans and policies for the next century.

The cases discussed here illustrate how the Foundation is tackling some of today's key health care issues, and focuses specificly on three areas of concern--access to care, changes in the health care system, and improving conditions for vulnerable groups.

This volume focues on:

  • The media and managed care
  • Medical malpractice
  • Measuring access to care
  • Programs for homeless families
  • Immunization services for children
  • Improving health policy at the state level
  • Shaping the health care workforce
  • Chronic care services
  • Death and dying
  • Physicians and the uninsured
  • Sexual behavior and AIDS
