  • Nurse researchers at Dana-Farber are studying whether computers can help patients physically and emotionally during cancer treatment.

    The computer study, called the electronic self report assessment-cancer project, or ESRA-C, keeps a record of physical symptoms like fatigue and emotional issues like depression. Patients answer questionnaires during the course of their treatment, and this allows doctors to monitor how patients are doing.
