BCNA has launched the new updated online tool to support breast cancer patients along their journey.
I am very proud to be a part of this organisation and to have contributed initially to the My Journey Book and now to this online tool. Please share with your patients that this now has both an in-built symptom tracker and is a being released in a downloadable app version of My Journey. My Journey has been delivered to more than 15,000 breast cancer patients annually.
The symptom tracker has been designed, with the help of consumers, to support users in recording the physical and emotional symptoms of a breast cancer diagnosis. It will empower users to actively participate in their own symptom management, while helping them to feel confident in accurately sharing the ups and downs of their experiences with you and their team of health professionals.
Watch the video below to learn more about how My Journey can help you to support your patients.
Feedback on this app is welcomed as the online tool is constantly being improved.
