Abstract

The University Hospital of Lausanne has heavily invested in the development of interdisciplinary oncology centers to improve the quality of care, and structure research and training. By integrating specialist nurses, it follows international recommendations. These specialists' nurses rephrase the information given by the doctor and ensure patients' understanding. They assess the patient's psychosocial situation and provides guidance if necessary. They support the patient in making informed choices about treatment and coping strategies. In addition to the outpatient clinics planned in accordance with the care pathway, she can be contacted between appointments to answer questions or concerns of any kind. This article shows the added value of these nurses in the care of oncology patients.
