This paper describes an ongoing study of the Advanced Symptom Management System (ASyMS) for patients receiving chemotherapy for breast or colorectal cancer. We begin by detailing the ASyMS work to date, providing an overview of research conducted in the field over the last ten years. The current study, ASyMS-III, is then presented, highlighting the study methodology, multi-site involvement, the outcomes being measured, and discussion of the tool. The paper concludes with reflections on the progress of the ASyMS-III study to date, and discusses potential directions for future research.
