Abstract Personalized medicine should target not only the genetic and clinical aspects of the individual patients but also the different cognitive, psychological, family and social factors involved in various clinical choices. To this direction, in this paper, we present instruments to assess the psycho-emotional status of cancer patients and to evaluate the resilience in their family constructing in such a way an augmented patient profile. Using this profile, 1) information provision can be tailored according to patients characteristics; 2) areas of functioning can be monitored both by the patient and by the clinicians, providing suggestions and alerts; 3) personalized decision aids can be develop to increase patient's participation in the consultation process with their physicians and improve their satisfaction and involvement in the decision-making process. Our preliminary evaluation shows promising results and the potential benefits of the tools.
