IOM Health Reports Online

Major reports on pressing questions about health and health care have been issued by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), the health arm of the National Academies, since 1970.  The reports cover public health, biomedical and health research, diseases, quality and patient care, nursing, health services and many other topics. 

Reports published after 1998 are freely available online on the Institute’s Website.  You can also find these IOM reports by searching the Duke Libraries’ online catalog.   Many older as well as recent major reports can be found as print versions in the Duke libraries’ collections.

News flash: On July 1st, IOM will become the National Academy of Medicine!  The membership voted for this change at its 152nd annual meeting in April 2015.
