Cancer Survivor Smart Card (smartCARE)
While cancer survival rates have increased significantly, cancer survivors still suffer from a wide range of issues, often significantly decrementing their quality of life. Beyond the need for health systems to address these issues, cancer survivors also deserve to receive relevant and adapted information to help them meet the challenges they face. Such information should cover all aspects of their cancer survivorship, including access to specialist care and support services addressing both physical and psycho-social impacts of cancer.
In this respect, the smartCARE project aims at developing a Cancer Survivor Smart Card to improve the quality of life and health status of cancer survivors, in the form of a mobile application, embracing the core attributes of patient-centred care.
