Title iManageCancer
Description iManageCancer, or ‘Empowering patients and strengthening self-management in cancer diseases’, will team serious games up with the latest in self-management technology to empower people living with cancer.

In this project, 8 partners from 5 European countries are creating intelligent, fun new ways to let those with chronic illnesses manage their lives in a new way, all from their mobile phones. Significant improvements due to cancer research have led to more cancer patients being cured, and very many more enabled to live with their condition. The disease is now frequently managed as a chronic illness requiring long-term surveillance and, in some cases, maintenance treatment. As a chronic illness, however, there is an urgent need for patients and families to manage their own care. The iManageCancer project will support this challenge and provide a cancer disease self-management platform designed according to the specific needs of patients and focusing on their wellbeing. The project is a recently launched European research activity to empower patients and strengthen their capability to manage their diseases through novel health apps and secure eHealth services.
