Would you like to contribute to the future of cancer treatment in technology? iManageCancer project is trying to find out how mobile healthcare (mHealth) and serious games might help people with chronic illnesses and in particular cancer. Significant improvements due to cancer research have led to more cancer patients being cured, and very many more enabled to live with their condition. The disease is now frequently managed as a chronic illness requiring long-term surveillance and, in some cases, maintenance treatment. As a chronic illness, however, there is an urgent need for patients and families to manage their own care.
The iManageCancer project will support this challenge and provide a cancer disease self-management platform designed according to the specific needs of patients and focusing on their wellbeing. The project is a recently launched European research activity to empower patients and strengthen their capability to manage their diseases through novel health apps and secure eHealth services. 8 partners from 5 European countries are creating intelligent, informative and fun ways to let those with chronic illnesses manage their health in a new way, all from their smart phone.
