Oncology Associated Symptoms and Individualized Strategies
Living with a cancer diagnosis can be challenging, and cancer combined with treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation often can produce distressing physical and emotional symptoms. While you cannot control the development of these symptoms, you can control how you respond to them. The OASIS study is here to help you develop ways to respond and improve your quality of life.
OASIS is a web-based cancer symptom management program developed by The University of Iowa College of Nursing. The website contains information about 16 common cancer-related symptoms, including descriptions about how these symptoms develop. Additionally, it provides you with a strategy library that teaches you how to self-manage different types of symptoms. With OASIS, you can pair symptoms with suggested strategies and use our tracker function to track how using these strategies can help control your symptoms.
As part of the OASIS study:
- You will have access to the OASIS website and will have the opportunity to track your symptoms and chosen strategies regularly.
- You will complete study questionnaires at four-week intervals. Compensation will be provided for each questionnaire you complete.
We are currently recruiting people to be part of our study to learn more about how OASIS can help people living with cancer, and we need your help. If you are:
- Currently diagnosed with cancer
- Over the age of 18
