Free copies of journal and reprints

Limited free copies of the April 2001 issue of the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law (AHRQ Publication No. OM 01-0010) are available from the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse.

This special issue of the journal grew out of an April 2000 workshop jointly sponsored by AHRQ and the Institute of Medicine. It presents papers and commentaries from the meeting. The papers focus on the use of evidence in health care decisionmaking and the meaning of evidence in medicine, policymaking, and law. An article by AHRQ Director John M. Eisenberg, M.D., "What does evidence mean? Can the law and medicine be reconciled?" appears in the journal.

Reprints of Dr. Eisenberg's article (AHRQ Publication No. 01-R046) are also available from the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse.
