RESTON, Va., Nov. 10 Clinical Care Options (CCO), a leader in the development of innovative online, print, and live medical education and medical education technologies for healthcare professionals, is proud to announce the launch of CCO Oncology inPractice, the second specialty area for the new, free, online point-of-care resource for clinicians that provides critical information for the clinical management of all forms of cancer. CCO HIV inPractice was the first specialty portal launched by CCO at the annual meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America on October 29, 2009.
"The introduction of CCO Oncology inPractice empowers more clinicians at the point of care to improve patient care by expanding access to the latest and highest-quality management information," said Jeffrey L. Drezner, MD, Ph.D., CEO of Clinical Care Options. "In addition to searching the comprehensive reference content that has been developed specifically for inPractice as well as 5 additional databases, CCO inPractice users are able to earn Point of Care CME credits, receive personalized recommendations for complementary CCO continuing education activities, and access links to other resources and interactive tools."
CCO Oncology inPractice, authored by world-renowned experts, provides a single easy-to-use search tool to explore 58 original chapters designed specifically for point-of-care use, integrated with drug information, treatment guidelines, conference coverage, and PubMed abstracts. The Editor-in-Chief of CCO Oncology inPractice, Ramaswamy Govindan, MD, of Washington University, St Louis, has guided the development of content by 113 authors and will continue to direct regular updates to this dynamic program found at inpractice.com.
"I'm extremely proud of the work contributed by the many expert faculty members who supported this ground-breaking effort," said Dr. Govindan. "Their dedication has made it possible for CCO to offer an extraordinary breadth of information with a fast and user-friendly interface that will make a difference in the clinic setting in the more than 225 countries around the world where CCO programs are currently used to improve patient care."
CCO Oncology inPractice is certified for Point of Care CME credit by USF Health. The CCO inPractice program is supported by independent medical education grants provided by commercial supporters.
