The iManageCancer project – empowering patients and strengthening self-management in cancer diseases

Guest Editor: Stephan Kiefer

This Special Issue features a series of articles arising from the European Union H2020 funded iManageCancer project which explain the initiative, review the research landscape that surrounds it and provide insights for future development.

The project team have created a cancer disease self-management platform which has been designed according to the specific needs of patients regarding their wellbeing, featuring four apps and a personalised health record website. Ranging from the academic development of "serious video games," to reflections on the security of healthcare data, these articles will stimulate discussion across many disciplines.
