Ratings and Reviews
Helps you keep track of and store all aspects of your breast cancer diagnosis and treatment
This easy to use app enables you to safely store and view information on all aspects of your breast cancer diagnosis, treatment plan and side effects in one place
I found the OWise app really helps you to get organised. Having cancer requires you to keep on top of a myriad of appointments and remember all the medications, advice and guidance at a time when your head is all over the place and you have so much on your mind. It can also aid conversations with your medical team and has a useful functionality to make notes and store (and even suggest) questions for your appointments.
In the trauma and distress of going through breast cancer treatment this app helps you to keep a track of, monitor and share side effects with your healthcare team. There is also a helpful section of useful links to charities and organisations that provide support for breast cancer patients.
Easy to use all
Great for storing all your information, keeping all your notes in one place, such as appointments, how you are feeling. You can share information and documents with your oncology team if your hospital uses the same system. My favourite thing is just putting information into the app and everything being in one place.
I love this app for being able to track symptoms. I do, however, think it is targeted more towards those who have been newly diagnosed than someone like me with Stage4. I don’t use the questions section & I haven’t read my treatment reports.
The treatment section also asks for a stop date & if you are still taking pain meds (for example) there is no stop date in sight so I have just set it at a year hence.
The track symptoms is great & although I haven’t needed to use it when speaking to my oncology team, I can see that it would be very useful if you haven’t seen them for 3 months & need to look back.
All in all a great resource for those newly diagnosed and needing support and advice to find their way through diagnosis and beyond.
