Microsoft Office Tutorials Palm OS Resources
There are several Palm OS resources related to Public Health, that I have found to be quite useful. Cost is always a factor for me, so I located several free or very low cost applications to make your Palm OS use easier.
4.01 currently costs $19.99, but it is money well
spent. This is a very cool program. iSiloX
installs on your PC (or Mac) and allows you to drop and drag files (Word,
PowerPoint, Excel) into a window then converts them into Palm OS readable
documents - maintaining any hyperlinks originally in the document.
Or you can create your own document, inserting your own hyperlinks and
convert them. There is also
iSilo (no X)
which installs on your Palm - to allow viewing. Go to their website
for manuals and other downloads.
Adobe Reader for Palm OS v3.05 is a must. You can download any document created in .pdf format right into your palm. If you have Adobe Acrobat® Professional 6.0® or Adobe Reader 6.0®, all of your hyperlinks will be maintained. (http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readerforpalm.html)
Download any one (or all) of the PDA ready documents from the Department of Pathology, College of Veterinary Medicine, the University of Georgia:
Some freeware or shareware I have also found useful:
Journal Club - calculates 2x2 tables, providing; PPV, NPV, OR, number to treat, prevalence calculations, RR, sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratio (-), and likelihood ratio (+). Once you install the program, you have to enter a registration code (3free3). It's the same for everyone, it just activates the program.

Mobipocket Reader Pro for Palm
Reader PC are two great programs
that allow you to view documents on your Palm OS or PC.
