<p>The Commonwealth Fund is pleased to announce the launch of a new feature--Commonwealth Fund E-Forums--that will let visitors to our Web site "attend" major Fund events at their convenience through a multimedia format combining synchronized audio, video, slides, and transcripts of presentations from these meetings. This new feature, which will complement the live and archived webcasts we've been posting from these Fund events, allows viewers to click through presenters' slides as they wish to focus on the material that is of greatest interest to them.<br><br>Our first two Commonwealth Fund E-Forums are:<ul><br><li>The December 8, 2005 release of the Employee Benefits Research Institute/Commonwealth Fund Consumerism in Health Care Survey, <a href="/cnlib/pub/enews_clickthrough.htm?enews_item_id=20361&return_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ecmwf%2Eorg%2Fpublications%2Fpublications%5Fshow%2Ehtm%3Fdoc%5Fid%3D326359%26%23doc326359">available here.</a></li><li>The November 3, 2005 release of the 2005 Commonwealth International Survey on Sicker Adults, at the Fund's 2005 International Symposium on Health Care Policy, <a href="/cnlib/pub/enews_clickthrough.htm?enews_item_id=20362&return_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ecmwf%2Eorg%2Fpublications%2Fpublications%5Fshow%2Ehtm%3Fdoc%5Fid%3D313012%26%23doc313012">available here.</a></li></ul><br><br>These presentations utilize a self-contained viewer that will open automatically in a separate window. Note that the presentations--particularly their video components--might take a few seconds to load. Those with dial-up may choose to watch our versions of the presentations that offer only the audio and transcript.<br><bR>Please tell us what you think of this new service by taking a brief online survey <a href="">here.</a></p&gt;
