Comment:
A recent article by one of our leading national experts on research policy and innovation, Prof. Richard Nelson, with distinguished medical co-authors, "How medical know-how progresses" Research Policy 40 (2011) 1339-1344 is very supportive for initiatives to develop patient registries, learning agendas and research programs that capture experience from learning in clinical practice. I shall forward a copy to the CMS address below. (In particular, see section 4 - The critical, but undervalued, role of learning in practice - and section 5 - Evaluating cumulative learning in medicine. )
