Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the CARE (Cancer Attitude Risk Education) system, an interactive user friendly hypermedia information system that will allow users to learn more about various aspects of cancer such as risk factors, diagnosis and available treatment options. The CARE system provides information to the user through various means like text, video, graphics, photographs, animation and sound. A defining feature of the CARE system is that it collects information from the user as well as disseminating information. The CARE system collects items such as name, age, gender and answers to risk assessment questions as the user browses through the system. The data collected through the CARE system is valuable to cancer researchers and support groups.
