“Opportunities for Pervasive Computing in Chronic Cancer Care “ Accepted to the Pervasive 2008 conference in Sydney Australia.
Abstract: While changing from a predominantly terminal to an increasingly chronic condition, cancer is still a growing concern. Accompanying this change are new opportunities for technologies to support patients, their caregivers, and clinicians. In this paper, we present an in-depth study of cancer communities. From this exploration, we define and describe the concept of a personal cancer journey. We examine lessons and design opportunities across this journey for sensing and context-awareness and capture and access applications.
