On Friday 17 November, the Quality of Life in Cancerology conference, organized by the UMQVC with the support of the Pôle de Cancérologie, the IRFC and Oncolie, took place at the PCBio of the University Hospital of Besançon. Four international guests specialized in research in QoL (Prs Fabio EFFICACE and Bernhard HOLZNER, Drs Johannes GIESINGER and Francesco COTTONE), a researcher in clinical psychology (Dr Alexandra LAURENT), a medical oncologist (Dr Nathalie MENEVEAU), a postdoctoral fellow of the ICM (Dr Célia TOURAINE) and six UMQVC members (Dr Amélie ANOTA, Emilie CHARTON, Joëlle FRITZSCH, Dr Guillaume MOUILLET, Ahmad OUSMEN and Dr Sophie PAGET-BAILLY) presented their work in front of forty people on the one hand on the collection of the quality of life (QoL) in current clinical practice and on the other hand on methodological research in QoL. This day allowed to present the first results of the studies carried by the UMQVC on the feasibility of the collection of the QoL in routine, to draw up a table of the methodological studies in which the team is involved and to offer an international perspective thanks to the participation of the expert guests. This seminar was the scene of fruitful discussions between stakeholders and between the public and stakeholders.
The entire team of the UMQVC warmly thanks the speakers and participants of the seminar and all the people and structures who helped to make this rewarding day.
