Real-Time Monitoring of Chemotherapy Side Effects of Cancer Patients

Researchers: Associate Professor David Taniar
Dr Tali Lang and Professor Gary Richardson (Cabrini Hospital)

Mobile phones can now be used as a tool to report events and conditions in real-time. In this project, patients use their smartphones to report side effects, such as pain and nausea, they experience after a chemotherapy treatment. Nurses in charge will be directly alerted to severe symptoms, so they can provide a suitable treatment immediately.
