Abstract

Objectives/purpose: To identify and explore the existing evidence to inform the development of web-based interventions to support people affected by cancer (PABC). A rapid review was chosen as there was a need for a timely evidence synthesis to underpin the subsequent development of an online digital resource (Shared Lives©: Cancer) as part of an ongoing funded project.

Methods: A rapid review design in accordance with the guidance produced by the Cochrane Rapid Reviews Methods Group and reported using the PRISMA checklist. Keyword searches were performed in MEDLINE to identify literature on the development of web-based interventions designed to support PABC. The review included peer reviewed studies published in the English language with no limits set on publication date or geography. Key outcomes included primary data that reported on the design, usability, feasibility, acceptability, functionality, or user experience of web-based resource development.

Results: Ten studies were identified that met the pre-specified eligibility criteria. All studies employed an iterative, co-design approach underpinned by either quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods. The findings from the ten articles were grouped into the following overarching themes (1) exploring current evidence, guidelines, and theory, (2) identifying user needs and preferences, and (3) evaluating the usability, feasibility, and acceptability of resources.

Conclusion and clinical implications: The findings provide novel methodological insights into the approaches used to design web-based interventions to support PABC. Our findings have the potential to inform and guide researchers when considering the development of future digital health resources.
