AvidNurse is an app that helps fight cancer at the point-of-care. The app includes a quick-reference guide to screening recommendations, BMI conversions, pain scales, and medication calculators to help nurses provide better care for patients. Nurses in all fields of practice can provide personalized and in-depth medical information about a patient’s risks for breast, prostate, colorectal, and lung cancers. The AvidNurse iPhone/iPod touch app will give nurses access to the most recent information and tools available, in lieu of cumbersome and out-dated pocket-guides. AvidNurse is made possible by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.
