Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of an interactive Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) -platform for use in a smartphone or tablet in patients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer. The hypothesis is that clinical management will be improved and costs reduced and safe and participatory care promoted, when patients report symptoms in an application which provides self-care advice and instant access to professionals.
