"Careology is an app that supports people with cancer to monitor and manage their health. Many people find managing their cancer treatment complicated and confusing. So, the aim of the app is to help people feel more in control of their care while they are having their treatment.
The personal information used in the app can also be shared with a person’s family, friends or medical team if they choose to do so.
The Careology app features a range of tools, which include:
“The Australian Clinical Trials website allows you to search for a clinical trial by disease type and you will receive a brief description of the trial, eligibility criteria for the trial and contact details for further information…
…There is a user friendly app that has been developed by ClinTrial Refer which allows you to search by your subtype of lymphoma for trials anywhere in Australia and it will tell you whether the trial is currently open, where it is open and who to contact for further information.
Features the activities of Belgium-based multi-stakeholder organisation specialising in cancer, the European CanCer Organisation (ECCO).
Contains a video on how women should properly check their breasts for cancer. Is approved by NHS Choices as being safe.
“The app was built with advice from Dr Licitra of the Cancer Institute of Milan, with sponsorship from us, the Associazione Italiana Laringectomizzati (AILAR), and the Federazione Italiana delle Associazioni di Laringectomizzati e Pazienti Oncologici (FIALPO), and the Associazione Italiana di Oncologia Cervico-Cefalica (AIOCC). The app is an effective tool for patients with tumours of the head or neck, and also for people who have difficulty speaking. The app allows you to activate a voice synthesiser from a repertoire of phrases that best meet the basic needs of these types of patients. You can also write short sentences to be sent to the speech synthesiser, producing either a male or female voice.”Associazione Italiana Laringectomizzati (AILAR), Italy | Source no longer available
