Paul, D., Henskens, F. A., Bryant, J., Smits, R., Sanson-Fisher, R.W., and Stevenson, W. “The Haematology Treatment Aid: Providing Personalized Information to Patients and Carers”, The 6th International Conference on e-Health, Lisbon, Portugal, IADIS, pp. 372-376, July 2014.

This paper describes a Web-based tool to provide information and support to patients and carers of people diagnosed with haematological cancers. The Web site provides customized information relevant to the type of cancer the individual has, the treatment options available to the patient at the current stage of their illness, and the support services located near the patient. The application has been designed to allow new information to be entered into the system, including new levels of customization, with minimal extra development. This allows required changes to be implemented quickly and easily without compromising the quality of the system.
