Acute Oncology Clinical Guidelines


Knowing when and how to escalate patients to a cancer specialist can be particularly complicated, especially when they come in via the A&E department.


The Acute Oncology app provides a way for doctors, nurses and other health professionals to access a knowledge database that would usually require very specific oncological training. They can use this knowledge to triage the patients presenting in front of them. For more serious cases, the app provides the contact details of all local specialists in this field. Spotting a cancer even slightly earlier, knowing more specific information about it and being able to make a referral to an appropriate oncologist within minutes can have a huge impact on patients’ experience and chances of recovery.
