Did you get a new iPad for Christmas?

Here are some tips for getting the most out of your iPad.

Research Medical Library - Tablet Site1) Connecting to WiFi at Work
Be sure to use MDA Mobile instead of MDA Guest as your wireless network when you’re on campus. To log-in to MDA Mobile, go to your settings under Wi-Fi and tap on the word mdamobile, and you will be asked for a username and password. Enter your myID which is the same one you use to access your desktop or your Outlook account. Once you’ve signed in successfully, you will see a blue checkmark next to the MDA Mobile account.

2) Get Access to UpToDate, PubMed and more on your iPad
Start by going to our tablet page where you can read current journals or access UpToDate or PubMed. If you are off-campus, log-in using the Off Campus Login Button, and you will be able to access all of our resources for free as long as you have an internet connection.

3) So many Apps, So little Time
There are millions of apps out there, so which ones are actually good. Here are a few suggestions for places to find app recommendations.

4) Organize your Apps by Creating Folders
There’s an app for everything! Use folder to organize your apps into categories. To create a folder all your need to do is tap and hold on to an app until they all start to jiggle. Then drag the app over another icon and release. Your iPad will create a folder with both the apps in it. The folder will be named according to the category of the apps it contains, but you can rename it as you like.

Editor(s): Maggie Watson, David W. Kissane

Handbook of Psychotherapy in Cancer Care"This new book by international experts in psycho-oncology has arisen from the teaching academies offered by the International Psycho-oncology Society. It distills the wisdom and experience from the training manuals dedicated to individual psychological therapies and combines them into an accessible handbook for clinicians in cancer care today.

The editors have brought together leading researchers and therapists, who provide accounts of the prominent models of psychotherapy currently being used in cancer care, the key themes they address and the essential techniques needed to apply each approach successfully.   Helpful clinical illustrations are woven throughout the book to make overt the strategies found in each model.”
