Which way next?

This is a holding place to keep track of proposed articles that might prove useful to people interested in CUP and rare cancers. Proposed articles include “Access to Medical Records”, “NICE and the proposed guidelines”, “Chemo – sucess for Testicular Cancer not repeated elsewhere”, “MicroRNA” analysis and potential benefits to CUP”.
Feel free to add suggestions as to other usefult ideas or possible links.

Finding Information

What did people do before the internet and search engines arrived?
I’m guessing that for the most part the consultant’s words were the ‘be all and end all’ of finding information. Digging around in medical libraries would have been time consuming and frustating without prior experience in this area. Digging around in a general library would have offered very little. Now, however, the first step for many after the visit to the consultant, will be to open Google and see what the web has to say about a particular cancer or treatment regime.
