The Center for Applied Ethics and Professional Practice at the Education Development Center in Newton, Mass., published Innovations in End-of-Life Care, an online journal, bimonthly from January 1999 through June 2003.
Unlike traditional peer-reviewed journals, Innovations had a particular focus on the process of innovation, rather than primarily on results.
The project was part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's (RWJF) national program Targeted End-of-Life Projects Initiative.
- Project staff published 26 issues of Innovations. Each focused on a different theme or practice in end-of-life care.
- The center contracted with publisher Mary Ann Liebert in March 2000 to include a 20-page section of highlighted feature articles and an editorial from Innovations in each issue of Journal of Palliative Medicine, the official journal of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
- Under another contract with Mary Ann Liebert, the grantee produced three annual book-length compendia of material from Innovations, beginning in 2000.
- As of late April 2003, more than 12,000 people had registered to use the project's website.
