In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Calder Library would like to highlight some resources for both patients, health care professionals, and researchers who are grappling with breast cancer.
Today e-brary announced a new, free resource for breast cancer publications. The Breast Cancer Searchable Information Center brings together many of the publicly available breast cancer resources from the National Cancer Institute, the FDA, and other reputable resources. Take some time to browse and search through this wealth of information.
In addition to this Information Center, there are other breast cancer resources available for patients and their caregivers. Make sure to check out the pages on:
- MedlinePlus - includes tutorials, videos, latest news, and information on diagnosis/symptoms, treatment, prevention/screening, and coping (in English, Spanish, and other languages including Arabic, Chinese, French, Hindi, Russian, and Tagalog)
- National Cancer Institute - includes information on treatment, prevention/genetics/causes, screening/testing, clinical trials, literature, research, and statistics (English and Spanish)
We at the Calder Library are committed to providing support for the researchers who study this disease as well as patients who are directly affected. Please let us know if there are additional ways we can help.
