Support care coordination nurses:
“The care and support necessary in conjunction with any specific onco-haematological treatment for patients throughout the duration of their condition”.
This definition implies a holistic care procedure dimension essential to the optimisation of specific therapeutic approaches, such as maintaining quality of life for both patients and their families. The idea is therefore to prevent and anticipate the consequences of the treatment as much as possible, and to efficiently manage them as they arise. Through its various domains of expertise Hôpital Foch possesses a range of specific and reputed surgical and medical skill-sets with the addition of an effective understanding of the pre-therapeutic situation thanks to the pre-habilitation unit.
The above definition also implies a highly multi-disciplinary and information-exchange based dimension with coordination of the various approaches and themes at the heart of the Oncology and Support Care Department's original conception.
The Hôpital Foch support care unit seeks to establish itself as an international centre of excellence for patient support in direct contact with the hospital's various partners.
Its position within the structure of the Medical Oncology - Support Care department ensures that its development is centred on cancer conditions and at the cutting edge of developments and research into patient comfort and support.
The support care unit's objectives are based on the whole of the patient care approach (including their families), these include:
The heart of our commitment is to support patients and their families, as well as providing support for the staff that assist them in their fight against their conditions, in order to optimise specific treatments.
The oncology department is located on the 2nd floor of the Main Building.
It has 18 complete hospital beds and 16 outpatient beds.
Consultations are held Monday to Friday.
