TINA: Talking about Infection and Neutropenia Awareness is an app to educate patients and healthcare providers about preventing infection during chemo.

For cancer patients: engage in an interactive learning experience that prepares you and your caregivers to reduce their risk of infection during chemotherapy, and know what to do if you notice signs of infection. Play the role of a virtual patient and meet Tina, a virtual oncologist, who answers your questions about neutropenia and preventing infection.

For healthcare providers: practice sharing information about neutropenia with your patients through an interactive conversation. Play the role of Tina, a virtual oncologist, and learn how to quickly and effectively have this conversation to achieve better adherence and outcomes. Then meet a virtual patient and practice a realistic conversation.

Engage in a conversation about neutropenia, from a patient or a healthcare provider perspective
Learn about neutropenia and reducing risk of infection during treatment (for patients), and how to effectively have conversations with a cancer patient about infection during treatment (for healthcare professionals)
Access a helpful list of resources: staying safe during treatment (for patients), and more information about effectively talking with patients and useful materials to provide for them (for healthcare professionals)
