Abstract 2156


The mobile application is a valuable tool in the transmission of information in terms of having easy access in our daily lives and hosting applications containing information specific to many diseases. After breast cancer surgery, the patients are generally preferred to have verbal expressions in their education. In this context, it is considered that mobile application is the right choice in order to provide the opportunity for the patients to manage their post-operative processes, to facilitate their access to the right information and to provide a positive contribution to their quality of life by providing consultancy services.


The text content of the mobile application has text, image, video and audio equipment as well as online support / consulting services. It is thought that the mobile application will have a separate interface for each problem, and text and animation content will be the only problem for each interface. Care was taken to ensure that the created interfaces were of different colors and the layout to be used for problem solving was similar for each interface. It was ensured that the patients were checked from the admin panel if they did not watch or watch the videos again. All these operations were entered by entering the user name and password and recorded by end-to-end encryption.


Supporting self-care for a woman who has not yet achieved her responsibility to cope with all responsibilities will contribute to the maintenance of family unity. In the creation of a mobile application that can be reached continuously; It is aimed to support self-care, create a tool that can receive support without any social isolation, decrease individual dependence and increase self-esteem. Thus, the fact that the woman does not have to spend the post-operative period at home and can be used individually and at the desired time constitutes the other advantages of the mobile application.


If the patient with breast surgery has an equipment to support self-care in the post-operative home, it will be possible to decrease the rate of experiencing physiological, psychological and sociological problems. It will be possible for the patient who has no problems to decrease their applications to the hospital and to contribute to the economy of the country.
