Oncology Associated Symptoms and Individualized Strategies
OASIS is an interactive web-application to help people with cancer better manage their symptoms. OASIS was developed by a team of researchers, clinicians, and computer scientists at the University of Iowa. When you enter the site you are able to read about common symptoms and learn different non-medication strategies to better manage them. You can develop a personalized diary to keep track of the symptoms that bother you most and how helpful different strategies are at relieving those symptoms.
Currently, OASIS is being used in a research study to gather feedback on how well the system works for people living with cancer.
In addition to using the OASIS web-site, as part of the study participants receive a weekly e-visit with our research study nurse who will provide support, answer any questions, work through challenges, and troubleshoot any technology problems!
