There is increasing recognition of the role of electronic and online systems for assessing patients, decision-making and supporting management during and beyond cancer treatment. This session will review developments in lung cancer supportive care, remote symptom assessment by nurses and online holistic needs assessment for care planning and patient self-management. It is aimed at clinicians of all specialties but especially doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, as well as patients. Delegates will be invited to discuss their own local research and proposals for national studies through NCRI will be explored.
