Opal: Oncobuddy and OncoConseil

New cancer patients and their caregivers face many psychological, logistical and medical challenges. Peers, meaning people who have already lived through these circumstances, can provide empathetic support and help reduce cancer-related anxiety by sharing their experiences. Through this project, the research team will use artificial intelligence to improve the availability and effectiveness of peer support in Quebec by matching patients and peers using the Opal patient portal app (opalmedapps.com).
