A new Patient Portal has been established in NOVEL. The collection of resources is based on the collection of patient brochures created by NANOS members and currently available in the NANOS web site. 14 topics are covered. Each topic entry includes some or all of the following information links: the NANOS patient brochure, links into MedlinePlus for patient oriented information, a live PubMed search leading to the most current biomedical literature, links to other authoritative Web sites, and links to support groups when available. The resources were identified and organized by the NOVEL team, then reviewed and refined by the NANOS Patient Education Committee, led by Luis Mejico, MD.
As additional patient brochures are developed by NANOS members, topics will be added to this patient portal Currently, the Patient Education Committee is working to translate the brochures into multiple languages.
Please feel free to suggest topics for development, or volunteer to work with the Patient Education Committee to develop patient brochures on new topics.
