Title Pilot Study of a Web-based Symptom Cluster Assessment System

Objective The purpose of this research study is to learn about patients' ability to use a computer application(app) to share information about their cancer symptoms. People with cancer often have several symptoms that co-occur in groups. We hope that using a computer app to collect this information from patients will help us better understand the groups of symptoms that patients have, their causes, and relationships between symptoms

Treatment NA
