The American Cancer Society now offers C-Tools 2.0, a timesaving tool that provides instant access to cancer information to anyone in the healthcare field.
C-Tools 2.0, an innovative Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) software package, was developed to help doctors and their staff prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and is available free of charge.
“C-Tools 2.0 plays an important role in helping busy physicians access and utilize important cancer information literally at our fingertips; information that helps with immediate diagnosis, treatment, and counseling for our patients,” says Key Stage, M.D., Chairman of the American Cancer Society Prostate Cancer Committee.
A primary care setting is where most people receive cancer-related information. To have the broadest reach possible, C-Tools 2.0 is provided at no cost to: primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, residents, and all health care professionals.
C-Tools 2.0 provides important cancer-related health information such as: Cancer Screening Guidelines/Calculator, Tobacco Cessation Tool, Pain Medications Dictionary, Drug Calculator, Pain/Symptom Management Tool, Detecting Cancer in Children, Specific Antigen Information, BMI Calculator for Adults, Skin Cancer Screening Tool, Communicating with Your Patients about Bad News, and Questions Patients ask about Cancer.
Using either the Palm Operating Systems or a Windows Mobile, C-Tools can be downloaded free today at www.cancer.org/c-tools. If a CD-ROM is preferred, it can be ordered by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. C-Tools 2.0 is available in English; however, general cancer information in Spanish is available at cancer.org as well.
The American Cancer Society is dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by saving lives, diminishing suffering and preventing cancer through research, education, advocacy and service. For more information anytime, call toll free 1-800-ACS-2345 or visit www.cancer.org.
