About this App

FCR: Find Cancer Resources was designed by a team of professional librarians from the University Health Network as a pathfinder to help clinicians locate free health sciences information resources on the Internet. In addition to links to key international medical and health sciences information tools, there is a focus on resources specific to oncology. Care has been taken to include pertinent content from Kuwait and the Eastern Mediterranean region. Mobile-friendly sites have been chosen over traditional web resources where available.

For ease of navigation, content has been categorized into databases, e-journals, e-books, dictionaries, websites, author tools, professional associations and sites that provide insights into evidence-based medicine. You can browse additional sub-categories within these.

Please note that this app contains links to websites on the Internet that are not maintained or controlled by University Health Network. The list of resources is selective rather than comprehensive. Criteria for selection were that each resource was available for free, was accessible on a handheld device, and was from a source believed to be credible and authoritative.

However, we are not responsible for the contents or reliability of any linked websites and do not necessarily endorse the views expressed within them. We cannot guarantee that these links will work all of the time and we have no control over the availability of the linked pages. It is up to you to review and assess the information found through this app. To help you decide the suitability of individual resources, information for each resource is provided from the sources themselves and includes the names of the organization or publisher responsible for the tool.
