What is the Alberta mBC Support Platform?

The mBC Support Platform provides an easy way for you and your caregivers to track medications and symptoms, prepare for appointments and access credible and relevant health information. Through the platform, you are able to search for clinical trials and connect with others living with mBC.

Designed by mBC Patients for mBC Patients

Goal of the Support Platform

This platform aims to improve decision-making and care for patients with metastatic breast cancer.

Create Routines

We know you have a lot to remember...

Keeping track of medications, monitoring symptoms, diet and food intake, movement and exercise, and mental health check-ins can be overwhelming.

Let us help remind you! 

Set up a routine and create reminders for reoccurring medications, supplements and activities while tracking health data and symptoms.

Invite Caregivers and Careteam

Invite a caregiver

Instead of passing around a binder, invite a caregiver to contribute to your virtual binder. They too can easily scan, enter and manage your health care information. 

Invite a member from your Careteam

Invite a member of your Careteam to contribute, manage and view your health care information. 

You control the level of access that Caregivers and the members of your Careteam have.

Access Health Resources

The Health Library is a central location to find information specific to mBC. With your account, you will have access to prepopulated resources specific to your subtype.

These resources have been chosen by an oncologist and include websites, videos, images, and documents. 

Create a Community of Support

With the Community feature, as a patient, you can connect with others living with mBC or who have a similar diagnosis.

As a caregiver, you can connect with others caring for a patient with mBC.

Find support in a community of peers. You can chat one-to-one and learn about symptom and management strategies, wellness and advocacy tips, and more. 

Your conversations are encrypted and never shared.
