Seeding and nurturing new fields is one approach that has characterized the Foundation’s grantmaking since its very beginning in 1972. Previous volumes of the Anthology have explored the Foundation’s efforts to build the fields of nursing and nurse practitioners, tobacco control, and end-of-life care. The chapters in this year’s volume of the Anthology reveal much more about both approaches to improving health and health care and the ways that one foundation operates.
The Anthology series presents original articles about RWJF grants and programs, the series captures and conveys the experiences, findings and lessons learned from a wide selection of the programs that RWJF funds—programs that tackle some of today’s most critical health care issues.
The series reflects the Foundation’s commitment to sharing knowledge resulting from our grantmaking with those who can use and benefit from it.
