Objectives 

This study has two main objectives.
• First objective is to evaluate the applicability of a mobile application in the communication with trial participants. We investigate trial participants’ satisfaction of using a mobile application to deliver information to the trial research team before they visit our clinic. Furthermore we investigate the usefulness of the mobile application for employees of the trial research team to prepare for a consultation with a trial participant.
• Second objective is to investigate the feasibility and preferences of a mobile application for delivering patient registered outcome measures (PROMs) compared to paper questionnaires.
