The EU-funded project REBECCA taps into the potential of Real-World Data to support clinical research and to improve existing clinical workflows.
It will combine clinical data with data obtained from multiple wearable, online behaviour and registry data to study the complex array of chronic comorbidities developed during breast cancer recovery. The data will be deployed within 7 clinical studies in 3 countries, involving over 650 individuals, and it will help shape future guidelines and practices for post-cancer treatment.

More impact of clinical research on breast cancer patients
Clinical and technological universities, industry leaders, public health experts, and patient associations will work together to shape guidelines and practices for post-cancer treatment. Best practices from the REBECCA studies will be disseminated to researchers, public health and regulatory bodies throughout Europe to facilitate wider adoption of RWD in clinical research.
REBECCA will provide an infrastructure for continued progress on the use of RWD beyond the project, facilitating the mass adoption of RWD as a valuable clinical research and patient management tool.
