Evaluation of a web based tool for estimating and explaining prognosis.

 

Trial Summary: We have developed a web-based tool (iTool) to help cancer doctors estimate and explain scenarios for survival time to people with incurable cancer. The specific objectives of this project are to determine: the attitudes of patients, family members and other doctors and health professionals involved in the patients' care to receiving survival information via the iTool and; the attitudes of oncologists to using the iTool. We will also assess accuracy of the survival estimates.
