Dr. Lauri Linder has received funding from the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for her game-based symptom reporting app, Color Me Healthy. Lauri and her team co-designed this app with elementary school-age children with cancer. In the initial test of the app among children receiving chemotherapy, more than half of children’s symptom reports included a report of pain. Parents reported that the app helped them better understand their child’s symptoms. Children and parents also gave important feedback the app. During the first phase of this funded project, Dr. Linder will use feedback from children and parents to make important changes to the app to enhance how children report pain and how the data can be understood by parents and clinicians. In the second phase of the study, she will ask children to sue the newly enhanced pain assessment feature and ask how parents and clinicians use d children’s data to help relieve their pain. Completing this study will allow Dr. Linder to use the app in a larger study to improve pain management and quality of life among children receiving cancer treatment. Congratulations, Lauri!
