Living Medical Textbook(TM) from Projects In Knowledge(R)
Date:7/6/2009

LITTLE FALLS, N.J., July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Breaking new ground and abandoning the dated textbook model, Projects In Knowledge (www.projectsinknowledge.com) is the first to market the Living Medical Textbook -- shaking up the old and making it obsolete.

The Living Medical Textbook, utilizing a proprietary electronic platform, is an interactive educational textbook now available in three editions: Women's Cancers (www.livingmedicaltextbook.org/womenscancers), Tumor Immunology and Immunotherapy: Metastatic Melanoma (www.livingmedicaltextbook.org/tumorimmunology), and Osteoporosis (www.livingmedicaltextbook.org/osteoporosis). Each textbook provides a progressive series of web-based modules, organized into chapters that enable easy navigation and reference. Supportive multimedia hyperlinks within each chapter page provide access to illustrations, videos, journal articles, podcasts, glossary terms, online textbooks, and other resources to enhance understanding of relevant issues, adding clarity and depth of expertise that a printed textbook could never afford. Updated as new data emerge and with the scientific rigor of peer review, the Living Medical Textbook provides timely accuracy unsurpassed by traditional textbooks.

What sets the Living Medical Textbook apart from printed medical books, which become outdated as soon as they come off the press, is its unique ability to be current at a moment's notice, according to Patty Peterson, CCMEP, Senior Vice President at Projects In Knowledge. "When new information and data are reported from medical conferences, scientific journals, or media outlets, the content of any Living Medical Textbook can be revised instantly to reflect the new developments," said Ms. Peterson. "We can add, remove, or replace the hyperlinks as needed, and update any of the content, to deliver the most current material to the learner. Because of this unique capability, the Living Medical Textbook becomes a truly living interactive educational tool, assuring clinicians that they are reading the latest information in their specialty and keeping up to date with the state of the science."

All content is created by a team of medical writers, editors, researchers, and thought leaders in their respective fields, and undergoes a rigorous third-party peer review process to ensure scientific accuracy and integrity.

Soon to move into the iPhone platform, and as a supplement to electronic medical records hardware, the Living Medical Textbook becomes a daily tool and resource in the clinician's workflow, accessible from the office, hospital, or home. A special institutional and individual subscriber model will be available that will incorporate Q&A access to the thought leader editors, original journal article access, and a suite of workflow-compatible tools.

Living Medical Textbook editions in Multiple Sclerosis and Lymphoma/Leukemia are now in development, joining the currently available Oncology and Osteoporosis editions. Over the coming year, Living Medical Textbooks will be launched in the areas of New Solid Tumors, Virology, and Infectious Diseases. All editions offer free CME/CE/CPE credit.
