Randomized unblinded interventional clinical trial:
Arm Intervention Experimental arm (n=150): Intervention group Administration of the MyPal ePRO system the intervention group will use the ePRO tools provided in the project.
Standard care arm (n=150): no intervention besides general palliative care if required general palliative care if required.
Patients will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 fashion to use the MyPal system and receive related-intervention versus general palliative care, stratified by cancer type (i.e. CLL vs MDS), using a computer-generated number sequence, which will be concealed until after group assignment.

- Improvement in EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ)-C30 General Questionnaire [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]The primary objective is to determine whether - compared to standard care - the MyPal-ADULT intervention can lead to improved QoL as evidenced by statistically significant higher scores in EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ)-C30 General Questionnaire
- Improvement in EuroQol (EQ)-five dimensions (5D) [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]The primary objective is to determine whether - compared to standard care - the MyPal-ADULT intervention can lead to improved QoL as evidenced by statistically significant higher scores in EuroQol (EQ)-five dimensions (5D).
