TORONTO – A team of researchers from eHealth Innovation at University Health Network are studying how an mHealth app for prostate cancer survivorship care is adopted and accepted by patients, caregivers and clinicians. “This will, to our knowledge, be the first realist case study to evaluate an app for prostate cancer survivorship care,” said Dr. Joseph Cafazzo, research team leader, in a statement. The team will also determine the effect of the app, called Ned (No Evident Disease), on health-related quality of life, satisfaction with cancer care, unmet needs, self-efficacy and prostate cancer-related levels of anxiety. The Ned case study is a 12-month study of 400 patients, 200 caregivers and 10 clinicians. The first participant was recruited this month and completion of the study is expected in May of 2019.
