Point-of-Care IT (POC-IT) Guides
The Solutions team offers physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical students and other health care professionals the popular and highly regarded medical resource, the Johns Hopkins POC-IT Disease and Condition Guides.
POC-IT Guides - Infections diseases, Diabetes, HIV - provide access to the most current evidence-based information to help clinicians diagnose, treat and manage their patients. POC-IT Guides are developed and updated regularly by clinical faculty of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, who are working at the cutting edge of research, at the bedside of their patients and in the classroom, with their students.
POC-IT Guides are not compilations of long textbook entries or simply links to existing journal articles. Each of the hundreds of information modules in each Guide condenses complicated information into easy-to-navigate, bulleted nuggets to be responsive to the way clinicians need information at the point of care.
The Johns Hopkins Breast Cancer Handbook for Health Care Professionals - A straightforward guide to quality long-term care of the breast cancer patient
As the number of patients diagnosed with and surviving breast cancer increases, health care professionals must focus more on the newly diagnosed, and have less time to devote to patients who have completed their treatment. It is becoming essential that "breast cancer survivor doctors and nurses" be trained to fulfill this growing and needed role for patients.
Cancer care specialists, primary care practitioners, gynecologists, and internal medicine physicians all need to be aware of long term side effects of cancer treatment and side effects. They need to know how to monitor for recurrence, watch for other types of related cancers, and help instill confidence in their patient, who now is a breast cancer survivor. This handbook covers all dimensions of breast cancer prevention, diagnoses, and treatment for the non-s[specialist and places a special emphasis on the long term survivor.
