New NSCLC Mobile App from Projects In Knowledge®
Free Point-of-Care Resource on Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer

Little Falls, New Jersey—March 12, 2012—Projects In Knowledge (PIK) has launched its newest free app for iPhone and iPad: Living Medical eTextbook: Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer Edition. This outstanding point-of-care clinical tool enables oncologists and other clinicians to keep abreast of critical disease and treatment information and practical patient management strategies.


Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the most serious and common malignancies in the United States. Scientific advances and ongoing research are creating a steady stream of improved strategies for diagnosis, staging, and treatment. With the NSCLC app, clinicians can tap into these developments and gain immediate access to updatable, peer-reviewed information on the latest clinical trial results, expert insights from top specialists, and smart links to external supplemental materials, such as journal articles, illustrations, and videos.


The app focuses on lung cancer screening, staging, histology, and biomarkers; new roles for chemotherapy; approved targeted agents; and emerging treatments. Making its debut in the NSCLC app is a newly developed search feature, which locates a specific word or phrase contained anywhere in the entire eTextbook. The app also offers complimentary continuing medical education (CME/CE) credit.


“The NSCLC app is the ideal clinical resource for busy oncologists who care for patients with lung cancer,” said Patty Peterson, CCMEP, Senior Vice President at PIK. “It provides them with immediate clarity and guidance on common disease and patient management challenges, up-to-date and updatable information presented by renowned oncology experts, and the convenience of earning CME/CE credits right at the point-of-care.”
