About Shaare Zedek Cancer Pain and Palliative Care Reference Database.

This is provided as a public service, in conjunction with the support of an unrestricted educational grant from Purdue Pharma .

This is a searchable database of over 30,000 references related to Cancer Pain and Palliative Care. The database was developed and is maintained by Dr. Nathan Cherny, who is the Director of the Cancer Pain and Palliative Care Service in the Oncology Department at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem .

The database provides you with an unrivalled gateway to the medical literature pertaining to all aspects of Pain and Palliative Care. We hope it will be of use to all clinicians and researchers working in this field.

The database is also available in the downloads section as 2 EndNoteĀ® reference manager files for use on your personal computer. To use these files you will need to have the EndNoteĀ® software. A trial version of this software is available at: http://www.endnote.com/
