The BTER Foundation provides services for clinicians looking for information or assistance in caring for their patients. Some of our services are listed below. Other programs are still in development (that means, awaiting funding or support). Still others . . . well, perhaps we haven’t thought of them yet. So let us know what services YOU would like to see, by contacting us directly.
Items marked with an asterisk (*) are available without charge to members. They may or may not be available to non-members for a small service charge.
