Hundreds of thousands of people live with cancer in the United States. While there are many treatments for cancer, including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, there is still no cure for the disease. One challenge that patients with cancer face is pain that is often experienced in the late stages of the disease.
Now there is a new tool to help manage cancer pain. The tool is a mobile app called After Cancer. The app was created by three women who have all experienced cancer pain first-hand.
The app is designed to help patients manage their pain medication and to provide support and information. The app includes a medication log, a dosage chart, and a pain journal. It also includes a list of questions that patients can ask their doctors about their pain.
After Cancer also includes a social media component. Patients can connect with others who are living with cancer pain. They can share their experiences and find support from others who understand what they are going through.
After Cancer is available for free on the App Store.
The MPI is just one example of the many mobile apps.
A new mobile tool has been developed by researchers at McGill University that is designed to alleviate late-stage cancer pain.
The McGill Pain Index (MPI) is a mobile app that is designed to help people with chronic pain. The app consists of a questionnaire that can be filled out by the patient, along with a pain rating scale. The app then provides the patient with a personalized report that includes information on the type of pain they are experiencing, as well as strategies to help manage it.
The MPI was developed in collaboration with the Peggy Lillis Cancer Foundation, and was designed specifically for people who are living with late-stage cancer. The app is available for free download on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
“People with cancer often suffer from chronic and intense pain that can be difficult to manage,” said Dr. Mark Ware, one of the developers of the MPI. “The McGill Pain Index is a tool that can help these patients to better understand their pain, and to find strategies to help manage it.”
The McGill Pain Index was recently tested in a study involving 50 patients with cancer. The results of the study showed that the app was able to accurately assess the type of pain the patients were experiencing, as well as the intensity of that pain.
The MPI is just one example of the many mobile apps that are being developed to help people with chronic pain. Other apps that may be of interest to cancer patients include the Pain Diary, the Pain Tracker, and the My Pain Diary.
Though it cannot cure cancer, the new mobile tool offers relief to those suffering from cancer-related pain in the late stages of the disease. It’s easy to use and can be administered in any comfortable setting, making it an important new addition to the arsenal of tools available to cancer patients and their caregivers.
