We developed an easily accessible, E-health intervention, the ‘Kanker Nazorg Wijzer’ (Cancer Aftercare Guide; KNW) for cancer survivors to facilitate and support self-management skills. The KNW is based on computer tailoring and can reach broad patient populations at low costs, while still providing specific information tailored to the personal needs of the user.The KNW is consistent with the current guidelines, stating that selfmanagement in cancer survivors should be stimulated.

To evaluate the KNW, a RCT is currently conducted with follow-up measurements at 3, 6 and 12 months comparing the KNW intervention to a waiting list control group.
