Addressing Mental Health of Cancer Patients and Caregivers Using a Mobile App Suite


Brief description of study

A cancer diagnosis affects not only patients but also their caregivers. The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of using a mobile app suite, IntelliCare, to improve the mental health of cancer patients and caregivers.

Detailed Study Description

Cancer patients and/or their caregivers will receive access to the mobile app suite, IntelliCare, as well as phone coaching that will focus on how to use the apps. IntlliCare is composed of separate apps that each target a specific aspect of mental health (e.g., reducing worry). The apps are interactive and designed for users to engage in short time bursts (e.g., less than a minute). IntelliCare was originally designed to be paired with phone coaching that focuses on how to use the apps and overcome barriers to usage.
