Paper-Based Survivorship Care Plans May be Less Helpful for Cancer Patients Who Search for Disease-Related Info on the Internet: Oncological Gynecology



abstract:
JMIR-Paper-Based Survivorship Care Plans May be Less Helpful for Cancer Patients Who Search for Disease-Related Information on the Internet: Results of the Registrationsystem Oncological Gynecology (ROGY) Care Randomized Trial | Nicolaije | Journal of Medical Internet Research


Conclusions: Paper SCPs appear to improve the amount of information received about the disease and medical tests, the helpfulness of the information, and understanding of the illness for patients who do not search for disease-related information on the Internet. In contrast, paper SCPs do not seem beneficial for patients who do seek disease-related information on the Internet.
