Brief Summary:
This pilot study is evaluating a new smartphone application named the LETSGO app. The LETSGO app is designed to promote empowerment in patients after treatment for gynecological cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gynecologic Cancer Device: LETSGO app Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Gynecological cancer treatment is increasingly successful, resulting in a rising number of cancer survivors. Many gynecological cancer survivors may experience late side effects from their cancer treatment. In addition, evidence is accumulating that an active lifestyle may increase empowerment and may positively influence well-being after cancer treatment. Through the LETSGO smartphone app, women treated for gynecological cancer will get access to individualized posttreatment information on side effects as well as tailored physical activity advices in order to assume more responsibility for achieving the best outcomes from her care. The participants will also regularly answer patient reported outcomes regarding possible recurrence though the app. As a first step the smart-phone application will be pilot-tested.
