DRAFT - Guide for using PEG during HNC cancer treatements.

I have created a draft document that includes much of what flew across the thread the past few days, If you feel having a guide of some sort to assist with the topic of PEG, then I suggest you take a look and add your latest thoughts. I will incorproate feedback I receive the rest of the week and publish over the weekend.

Thanks in advance. don

Link to MS Word 2007 version (docx)

Link to older MS Word 97-2003 format (doc)

Link to PDF version

 

EDITED: Added support for older version of MS Word. Original version was MS Word 2007 (docx) format. It first seemed like a file security access issue; I do not think that is it. I think some PC have an older version of MS Office/Word. Click on the older version, that should fix the problem.

I added a PDF version just in case, so at least everyone can read it but not may make comments in line as easily as possible.

Don, I tried access from home, and get a flag about downloading something... Tried this morning from work and it gets flagged and doesn't even give me any option as it blocks the site...

I was unable to read as well, but would very much like to know more information about this!  I'll check back soon to see if I can view.

It's a four-page Word document.  Maybe it has to do with the website's hyperlink setting?  Can I help with posting or emailing?

Hi Janie,

Sounds like you can open it, must be some folks are trying to access with older MS Word. Editied original post with links to other versions.

Thanks

Maybe it's a settings thing. When I clicked the original link it automatically scanned and downloaded it to my download folder.

too, when I used the link for the .doc file....so it's all about which Word program you have.  Mine won't even open a .docx document.

Pretty sure that Office 2007 and newer uses the X extension... (XML)... But you can always download a free viewer.

The computer I use mainly for surfing is an older laptop, that doesn't have Office on it.. That's why it originally flagged it, or MS Essentials did, can't remember.

Seems like folks can access it now, so please do have read offer comments. remember this is really a pre-draft as I really did just framed up the main things that I had in list and not a full run down on all things PEG, did not feel the temperature was good for that. Can I say LOL now? or might that be a secret terrorist code to blow up the csn forum. opps lol
