We're collecting what's known as real-world evidence from patients living with, and being treated for, melanoma. Participants will receive questionnaires to complete via the app on their smartphone or tablet.
The app has been jointly developed by Melanoma UK and Vitaccess, a healthcare research company.
The app has been co-created with patients. As we found out during the design phase, melanoma patients use a heap of different bookmarks, diaries and online tools to track how they're feeling, prepare for consultations, and connect with others going through the same experience. We’re bringing all of this functionality together in our easy-to-use app - and tons more - and can’t wait to show you.
The ultimate aim of this study is to provide medical and scientific professionals with real-time evidence of how melanoma patients are doing, in the context of their regular daily life. Such evidence can help propel developments in care and treatment to the next level. There's been nothing like it yet. We would love to get as many patients on board with this initiative as we can. It's the people who will truly send this app into orbit.
