PatientVOICE: The development and implementation of Chemowijzer.nl

Elderly patients forget much of the information about chemotherapy. An information brochure partly helps. A computer-tailored, preparatory tool with several functionalities might be more effective.

Aim
The aim is to develop and test the online tool PatientVOICE for promoting conversational participation and recall of information about chemotherapy by elderly patients with cancer

Method
Previous research and interviews with patients and nurses are used to develop PatientVOICE which is tested in an RCT using audio-recorded educational visits and questionnaires.

Results
The project results in an easy to use computer-tailored tool for older patients with cancer as a preparation on the nursing education about chemotherapy.
