Funding the development and maintenance of a new app, the first of its kind, for oncology patients and families.
The Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust is working with app creator, Charley Scott, the Friends of King’s College Hospital and Kingfishers on a new tech powered solution that will give children and families fighting cancer easy access to comprehensive, high quality, evidence-based education resources direct to their phone or tablet.
This inspiring app will contain comprehensive information and dynamic, engaging education resources in one easily accessible place including:
- Clinical information relating to specific cancer diagnoses and treatment
- Details and explanation of the procedures they may undergo
- The clinical teams who will be caring for them
- The clinical environments where they will receive their care
- Practical tips and advice regarding life with cancer including grants available and how to access them
- Real life testimonials from children and families who have completed cancer treatment
- Cancer charities and their remits
- Links to research opportunities and clinical trials
Utilising a combination of written text, animation and short videos, this information will be presented in an accessible, interactive and user-friendly manner for children across the paediatric age range and their families.
All resources and features will be co-designed with young people and families to ensure that the voice of patients and service users is truly at the heart of this project.
“Through our work with No Isolation robots, we’ve witnessed first-hand the power of technology to transform patient experience. So when we heard about this project, we didn’t think twice about getting involved. We feel privileged to be supporting another tech innovation which will change the lives of the communities we serve.”
