Abstract:One of the most prevalent side-effects when suffering from cancer is cancer-related fatigue (CRF), with a lifetime prevalence of 70 to 100 per cent. Many of those who finished treatment and were pronounced cancer-free, often display symptoms of cancer-related fatigue as well, such as lack of energy, or a decline in social or emotional lability. A recent approach toward CRF is using eHealth interventions to tackle symptoms of CRF, as well as other comorbid conditions. This paper is going to assess current research in the field, and is going to explore, whether there are eHealth interventions that are effective in combating CRF.
