KnowBreastCancer.org has partnered with patientINFORM to provide free online access to peer-reviewed medical articles.
PatientINFORM is a collaborative private-sector initiative of patient health organizations, medical societies, health information professionals, and medical publishers.
Through patientINFORM, patients and their family members can access the most important new research articles about diseases and treatments through the Web sites of participating patient health organizations. To use patientINFORM, patients visit the Web site of one of the participating health associations to gain immediate free access to important new articles from major medical publishers. Each health organization’s Web site provides visitors with links to the full text of selected journal articles, as well as materials created by health educators to help individuals more fully understand the implications of the research. The voluntary health organizations (VHOs) interpret the research in ways patients can understand and apply to their own health care needs.
