Brief summary

The primary purpose of this study is to implement an integrated eHealth platform to support and enable cancer survivors to achieve and maintain improved health and well-being and better cancer outcomes, and to assess the functionality and acceptability of the system.
Who is it for?
You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 18 or over and are either currently receiving cancer care (including follow-up care), or have recently been diagnosed with cancer and scheduled to commence cancer treatment at one of the participating sites.
Study details
Participants will have access to the eHealth system which assesses symptoms, emotional well-being and unmet needs. Participants will have access to a range of self-management websites based on their survey responses. Staff will receive a patient report with clinical recommendations. Patients and oncology staff will have access to the system for 6 months. Patients will then be asked to complete a survey and an interview regarding their use and acceptability of the eHealth system. Staff will be asked to complete an interview only.
A sub-set of participants who are on-treatment at the commencement of the study and transition to follow-up care during the study will receive a Treatment Summary and Survivorship Care Plan that will also be provided to their GP.
