The Compas-Y app in Emerce
Self-compassion during hard time
Annually, about 115.000 people in the Netherlands are being diagnosed with cancer. A diagnosis that comes with lots of insecurities and emotions. “Especially in the busy periods right after the diagnosis, it is of the essence that the patients are getting support in dealing with all of the emotions and the insecurities that the diagnosis brings. We noticed a bit of help for the people that have been sick for a longer time period, but the support for right after the diagnosis is still missing, according to us.”, said Judith Austin, PhD candidate at the University of Twente for Emerce.
