    Today’s professional health workforce is not consistently prepared to provide high quality health care and assure patient safety. Redesigning Continuing Education in the Health Professions examines continuing education for all health professionals, explores development of a national continuing education institute, and offers guidance on the establishment and operation of an institute to develop a coordinated continuing professional development system.

    In 2007 and 2008, the world witnessed a dramatic increase in food prices. To better understand and find ways to address these issues, the Institute of Medicine held the workshop "Mitigating the Nutritional Impacts of the Global Food Price Crisis." This report summarizes the workshop discussions.

    Public health emergencies underscore the critical need to prepare for a crisis in which many thousands of people suddenly require and seek medical care. Without careful advance planning and coordination, there is enormous potential for confusion, chaos, and flawed decision-making. To address these concerns, the Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events hosted a series of regional workshops, summarized in this report.

    The correlation between genetic variations and variations in disease risk has been a subject of study for more than 100 years. Initially, research focused on single genes that give rise to rare genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis or Huntington’s disease. With new studies, however, numerous associations have been found between genes and more common diseases, for example breast cancer, type II diabetes, coronary artery disease, asthma, and bipolar disorder. This rapidly advancing field of genomics has stirred great interest in “personalized” health care. The hope is that using genomic information in care will lead to reduced health care costs and improved health results, as preventive measures and treatments are tailored to patients’ genetic susceptibilities. On February 12, 2009, the Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Translating Genomic-Based Research for Health hosted a workshop to examine how to evaluate the clinical use of genomic information and the impact of genetic information in caring for patients.

    Like other areas of health care, oncology is under pressure to control expenses while improving patient outcomes and the quality of care. Unlike many other areas of health care, however, oncology faces unique challenges that can make it especially difficult to control costs. On February 9-10, 2009, the National Cancer Policy Forum held a workshop to explore these issues from multiple perspectives, including those of patients and patient advocates, providers, insurers, health care researchers, federal agencies, and industry. Assessing and Improving the Value in Cancer Care summarizes workshop discussions and presentations.

    On February 25-27, 2009, the Institute of Medicine convened the Summit on Integrative Medicine and the Health of the Public in , DC. The Summit brought together more than 600 scientists, academic leaders, policy experts, health practitioners, advocates, and other participants from many disciplines to examine the practice of integrative medicine, its scientific basis, and its potential for improving health.

    Nanotechnology—an emerging technology that enables researchers to manipulate matter at the atomic level—is providing scientists with the ability to enhance food safety and make foods more nutritious and satisfying by enhancing their nutrition content and other characteristics. On December 10, 2008, the Institute of Medicine held a one-day workshop to explore the use of nanotechnology in food products. These presentations and discussions are summarized in the IOM’s Nanotechnology in Food Products.

    Prior and ongoing exposures to asbestos continue to contribute to respiratory diseases including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis despite the fact that asbestos is no longer mined in the United States. To examine ongoing issues and concerns in this field, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) released a draft research roadmap in January 2009. In its 2009 report, A Review of the NIOSH Roadmap for Research on Asbestos Fibers and Other Elongate Mineral Particles, the IOM finds that NIOSH has put together a comprehensive and broad-based research Roadmap that could be improved through implementing a systematic and interdisciplinary approach to the outlined research.

    Childhood obesity has increased dramatically over the past several decades. Recent statistics show that nearly one-third of U.S. children and adolescents are overweight or obese. Increasingly, policy makers are recognizing that environmental factors affect individual behaviors related to food and physical activity. Communities have made efforts to improve these factors in diverse settings and with diverse populations, resulting in many promising approaches. Overall, however, these efforts remain fragmented, and little is known about their effectiveness. To better understand the successes and challenges of these initiatives, the IOM’s Food and Nutrition Board held two workshops in June 2008 and May 2009.

    The United States is experiencing an epidemic of childhood obesity. This problem could potentially affect the health of the U.S. population for decades to come, incurring substantial costs to the nation. In particular, Texas is home to three of the five U.S. cities with the highest obesity rates in the nation. The statistics on childhood obesity, demographics, size, and the efforts being made to prevent and reduce obesity in Texas all factored into the Food and Nutrition Board's decision to hold a workshop in Austin, Texas, on February 5-6, 2009. Childhood Obesity Prevention in Texas summarizes the workshop.
