In May 2016, I published a news article in Lancet Oncology about a new app designed to help cancer patients ask the right questions about their treatments.
Abstract: CAN.recall is a new app designed to help patients ask questions and retain the information given to them at their surgical, medical, and radiation oncology consultations. The app combines a clinically developed question prompt list (QPL) organised into categories that follow the general evolution of consultation discussions, with flexibility to edit the list to suit the patient’s circumstances. It also contains a sound recording function that allows you to replay the doctor’s response.
