Living Medical Textbook Neurology: Parkinson's Disease Edition
Up-to-Date Education and Information at Clinicians' Fingertips
at the Point of Care or Anywhere
Little Falls, New Jersey—May 27, 2010—Projects In Knowledge (www.projectsinknowledge.com), a fully accredited provider of continuing medical education (CME/CE) activities, has just launched Living Medical Textbook Neurology: Parkinson's Disease Edition as a free iPhone app, offering physicians and other clinicians added convenience and on-the-go access to this high-quality CME/CE activity and reference tool.
With its move to the iPhone platform, this outstanding educational program becomes an even more timely, convenient, and dynamic daily resource in the clinician's workflow, at the point of care or anywhere. "Living Medical Textbook Neurology: Parkinson's Disease Edition is a truly living source of knowledge and information for time-pressed neurologists and other clinicians," said Patty Peterson, CCMEP, Senior Vice President at Projects In Knowledge. "The free iPhone app now puts this information immediately into their hands wherever they happen to be, enabling them to stay current on the latest news, research data, and treatment advances on Parkinson's disease that they can incorporate into daily practice."
Utilizing Projects In Knowledge's proprietary electronic platform, Living Medical Textbook is an educational resource focused on a single specialty area and organized into a progressive series of chapters that enable easy navigation and reference. Supportive hyperlinks within each chapter page provide access to illustrations, videos, journal articles, podcasts, glossary terms, online textbooks, and other multimedia resources to enhance understanding of relevant issues, adding clarity and depth of expertise that could never be presented in a printed textbook. Updated as new data emerge and having undergone the scientific rigor of peer review, Living Medical Textbook provides timely accuracy unsurpassed by traditional textbooks.
The unique ability to be current at a moment's notice is what sets Living Medical Textbook free iPhone app apart from printed medical books. When new data are reported from medical conferences, scientific journals, or media outlets, the hyperlinks can be revised and the content can be updated to ensure that the learner receives the most current information.
The iPhone app can be downloaded for free on the Living Medical Textbook Neurology: Parkinson's Disease Edition website (http://www.livingmedicaltextbook.org/1947).
Projects In Knowledge also offers a free iPhone app for Living Medical Textbook Neurology: Multiple Sclerosis 2010 Edition. The app for Living Medical Textbook Hematology: Insights into Managing Leukemia & MDS Edition will be released shortly, and apps for additional editions are in development. All Living Medical Textbooks, including the iPhone versions, offer free CME/CE/CPE credit.
