Abstract

As people live longer and medicine improves, health issues also become more long lasting. During lengthier health journeys, patients' needs, goals and priorities change with time. Despite the dynamic nature of these health journeys, research has yet to examine how patient-centered health tools may adapt over time with users. My dissertation research aims to explore the utility and need for adaptable technology through a longitudinal deployment of mobile tools that progress with patients through their individual cancer journeys. The study will result in novel patient-facing tools and will demonstrate the feasibility of developing technologies that provide personalized support to individuals over time.
