Iwaishi L, Taba S, Howard-Jones A, Brockman D, Yamashita L, Ambrose A. 1998. Training on family-centered interprofessional collaboration: A manual for pediatric residents. Honolulu, HI: Hawaii Medical Association, Health and Education Collaboration Project, 165 pp.

Annotation: This training manual, designed for pediatric residents and other graduate students in helping professions, promotes the attitudes, skills, and knowledge required for providing family-centered services, specifically through interprofessional collaboration. The purpose of the training is to make participants aware of the positive value of family-centered, collaborative care and of professionals' role in providing such care. The concepts contained in the manual derive from two major schools of thought with regard to serving families: (1) family-centered care is the most effective care because families have opportunities to participate in decisions about their child's health care and education and (2) interprofessional collaboration recognizes that professionals interdependently—rather than independently—meet the multiple priorities and diverse needs of families.

Coffman J, Mertz E, and Pew Health Professions Commission. 1998. [Beyond the Balanced Budget Act of 1997: Strengthening federal GME policy] Executive summary. San Francisco, CA: Pew Health Professions Commission, 10 pp.

Annotation: This report is intended to offer Congress, the Administration, and others concerned with federal graduate medical education (GME) policy a road map for moving beyond the reforms in Medicare GME policy enacted as part of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. The report begins with the Pew Commission's rationale for advocating a continued federal subsidy for GME and related activities of teaching institutions. From there, it proceeds to enumerate the shortcomings in Medicare GME policy that remain unresolved despite the enactment of significant Medicare GME policy reforms as part of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. Finally, the report presents the Pew Commission's vision for federal GME policy and its recommendations for reforms of federal GME policy consistent with this vision. In addition to the main body, the report contains an executive summary, three appendices (source of GME funding, the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, and implication of the commission's recommendations for U.S. physician supply), and endnotes.
