Jill's thoughts

"Vinehealth is a great app which I have been using since cycle 2 of my chemotherapy when I first came across the app. I have helped with research on adding medications into the app, including whether the medication is cyclical or not, when it’s taken, dosage and what happens if treatment is halted for a period of time.


I was happy to participate in this research as I have found the app very useful myself but noticed a few things that could be made clearer from a user point of view. If my comments help to improve the app to support more cancer patients then I’m happy."
