Transcript:

We’re really interested in these colorectal cancer patients following up with the surveillance guidelines that they need to, in order to help reduce their chance of cancer recurrence. 

We ask patients what they want, what they don’t want. So we’re not adding so much in that it’s overbearing for them. So by giving them tools like this, providing them knowledge through the tool, we can help try and build up their confidence and their ability to be able to follow through with going for their colonoscopy or making their appointments with their oncologist. 

So we’re trying to give them the tools and the knowledge that can help them through their cancer treatment and beyond in to survivorship.
