MICHAEL MCGARVEY: It certainly has occurred to me that managed care organizations would be the ideal places to tap in order to identify patients for enrollment in such controlled studies. I did some work last year reviewing operations at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. One of the recommendations, in fact, was that the clinical center be a little more aggressive about contacting managed care organizations for case finding. If things were structured properly and if people understood the ground rules, this it would be a very fertile area for patient identification.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
