eRAPID stands for “Electronic patient self-Reporting of Adverse-events: Patient Information and aDvice”
Managing Lung Cancer and Treatment
eRAPID is an integrated web-system for patients to report symptoms and side effects during and after cancer treatment. Data that is reported by patients using the web-system (called QTool) will be documented in individual patient electronic health records. Where patients report mild side effects they will receive advice on how to manage them and to seek timely medical advice.
This website provides information on managing your symptoms during and beyond anti-cancer treatment as well as some general lifestyle tips for keeping healthy and coping with cancer.
