Objectives: 1) To determine the effectiveness of a patient-specific, real-time e-health alerts delivered at point-of-care in reducing rates of AET discontinuation and to understand patient-level factors related to AET discontinuation. 2) To assess integration of e-health alerts regarding deviations from best practices in administration of AET by cancer care teams. Methods: A prospective, two group controlled comparison pilot study will be conducted at two urban, McGill University-affiliated hospitals, the Royal Victoria Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital. A minimum of 43 patients per study arm will be enrolled through site-level allocation.
