- Brief summaryBackground:
Systemic therapy (cytostatic and/or targeted treatment) can be beneficial tot cancer patients, regardless of age, however, older patients are at risk for treament-related toxicity. Treatment related side-effect and unplanned hospital admissions (UHA) have a major impact on QoL, threatening independence. Treatment side-effects often lead to dose reductions, and in older patients even low grade toxicities (grade I/II) lead frequently to treatment modifications.

Objective
The aim of this study is to maintain QoL an improve cancer related outcome by preventing therapy-related toxicity (and ensuing unplanned hospital admission and/or discontinuation of chemotherapy) in cancer patients treated with systemic therapy bij the following procedures:
1. Integration of care/transmural collaboration.
2. Integrating "Hereismydata"in daily care to monitor treatment-related toxicity.
3. Education of home care providers to provide them tools to adequately intervene/ counsel oncology patients by developing a teaching module.
4.Evaluation of the use of Easycare-Tos in cancer patients.
5. Exploring patients preferences on care by hospital nurse, POH, district nurse an use of the internet.

Study population:
Older patients (aged 70 years or older) scheduled for systemic cancer treatment
