    Abstract

    This study aimed to test the procedures and technical systems in using an advanced symptom management system [ASyMS] in home monitoring and symptom management of patients receiving chemotherapy. Patients believed the system improved symptom management and felt reassured they were being monitored at home. Nurses found the system beneficial in managing symptoms and promoting interventions. The ASyMS system has the potential to improve management of symptoms in those with cancer receiving chemotherapy.
