OBJECTIVES:This article reviews supportive care eHealth interventions in cancer and emerging opportunities to optimize these interventions for diverse populations across the cancer trajectory. METHODS:A narrative literature review was conducted to evaluate eHealth supportive care for patients with cancer, including effective interventions, accessibility and interactivity issues, patient-reported outcomes, and strategies to improve care for older adults. FINDINGS:To ensure that patients with cancer and their family members benefit from supportive care eHealth interventions, nurses need to understand how to leverage such interventions to improve care.
