Description:
Managing side effects can be an overwhelming experience for oncology patients, they may be unsure of the severity of their symptoms and could be reluctant to contact their healthcare team. Shereen Nabhani-Gebara, PharmD, BCOP, from Kingston University, London, UK, and her team have developed an app which aims to target this issue. Using this app, patients can look up their symptoms and receive useful information on how to management their symptom and, where necessary, are advised to seek medical attention. Dr Nabhani-Gebara tells us about the positive effect using this app has had on the breast cancer patients so far and believes that it can be effective in other patient groups too. This interview was recorded at the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) Annual Symposium 2018, held in Birmingham, UK.
