Abstract

The purpose of this project is to design and implement an informative online platform on cancer issues. People know that the internet is used more and more to research health information, but often this information is neither reliable nor easy to understand. In collaboration with Centro Triangolo in Locarno, we want to build an online tool which could be useful for patients and their families to find understandable information and answer the most frequently asked questions on that topic. In order to give reliable information we will develop the content on the basis of Evidence Based Medicine translated into more comprehensible terms. It would also provide suggestions of how to face up to all the additional problems that cancer brings.
