About this Research Topic
The pandemic rapidly progressed technology usage particularly through virtual care and it is anticipated that this will only increase as technology systems become smarter and more effective, and staff and patients become more skilled in using them.
In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, healthcare organizations around the world have implemented and utilized changes in cancer care including a wide variety of technologies. The purpose of this collection of papers is to showcase and share learning from those who have had experience of these changes including implementing the use of IT solutions and/or IT science to assist and improve clinical outcomes for patients.
The overarching theme for the research topic is impact of COVID-19 pandemic on cancer care. We welcome the submission of manuscripts including, but not limited to, the following four sub-themes:
1) To analyze the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic on cancer care and rehabilitation.
2) To investigate the impact of Long-COVID on cancer patients and to look at similarities and differences of CRF and Long-COVID.
3) To investigate to what extent technology can be used to compensate deficits in cancer care and rehabilitation.
4) To describe the use of technology in cancer care and rehabilitation and to evaluate the outcomes.
