We have produced two apps - an exercise app for women after breast cancer surgery and a decision aid for people living with MND. ...
A web-based patient decision aid for people living with MND making a decision about whether to have a gastrostomy tube is now freely available to all via the MND Association website. Gastrostomy tube – is it for me? can be directly accessed here.
The decision aid was produced as part of the DiAMoND study, led by Dr Sally Wheelwright. Dr Wheelwright said: “People who have MND are faced with many difficult decisions about their care, including whether to have a gastrostomy tube. 'Gastrostomy tube – is it for me?'' is a resource which can supplement conversations with healthcare professionals during the decision-making process and help individuals to come to the right decision for them.”
bWell is a prototype app for smartphones and tablets to support self-management of arm and shoulder exercises for those affected by breast cancer. The study was led by Dr Helena Harder and the app was developed together with breast cancer patients and health care professionals. bWell is a complete, mobile resource for people with breast cancer and a step-by-step guide on how to perform the arm and shoulder exercises. The app was tested in a small group of patients with breast cancer.
