In addition, health-care policy and patient care issues will be examined attempting to improve clinical care and resource utilization. Mini-Reviews: Expert Opinions will provide timely, useful advice on the recognition and management of important cardiovascular problems and will expand the clinically relevant format of Circulation. The new section will be available in print and via a radio button on the home page of Circulation Online in January 2003.
