    where the research focuses on developing methods for patients to report
    symptoms and concerns during treatment or ongoing disease while getting help
    and support with these at an early stage. The emphasis is on the implication
    of the patient's own statements and the experience of living with the disease
    and how this is handled in order to improve health and well-being. The
    research covers method development, mHealth intervention studies carried out
    in close collaboration between researchers, patients and clinicians.
