Study Summary

The Survivor mobile health (mHealth) study is testing the use of wearable devices (Fitbits) and a smartphone application in cancer survivors. The goal of the program is to increase survivor's physical activity levels. The Fitbit will be synced to the app and participants will receive messages and notifications about their activity levels. Participants will also complete surveys through the app asking how useful it is and ways to improve it. The study team will conduct qualitative interviews at the completion of the 3 months to see how participants liked the program, and ways it can be improved and make it more specific to cancer survivors. The study team will also conduct interviews with providers and clinic staff to assess their perceptions of patient digital health programs and preferences for receiving patient-generated health data.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
