Interdisciplinary therapeutic patient education unit

To better support your patient during their illness and treatment, their care team may offer them the chance to attend a therapeutic patient education programme. The aim of the programme is to provide patients with a better understanding of their illness and treatment and to help them play an active role in their care, maintain their autonomy and preserve their quality of life.

Patients can choose whether or not to participate in our therapeutic patient education programmes. If they choose to do so, they will need to sign a consent form in order to register on the course. They are free to stop the course at any time.

Patients’ doctors are regularly kept up to date with their patient’s progress in the programme, particularly regarding what they have learned.

Their oncologist will also be kept up to date with their progress and will continue to monitor their illness, their treatment and any side effects.
