However, those delays may have been fortuitous in that new stages of organizational development have been reached recently and we have been able to incorporate a discussion of these changes in the final chapters.

The basic literature review was funded by a National Health Research Foundation Grant 5-52047-2522. This paid for research assistance and secretarial help, with $1,000 for overhead which was to include cost of paper, phone calls, etc. There was no allowance for travel.
