THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES OF PRACTICE
was founded in 1981 to advise governmental bodies on problems of healthcare. More recently it has focused on developing the interdisciplinary field. It was then, as it is today, the only interdisciplinary group of health care practitioners dedicated to addressing the problems of health care. The National Academies of Practice is dedicated to quality health care for all, by serving as the nation's distinguished interdisciplinary policy forum that addresses public policy, education, research and inquiry.
