From the Model to the Adaptation of a Therapeutic Education Program in Cancer Research: the Case of Renal Cancer Patients Treated by Oral Treatments, Multidisciplinary Approach (NCT02896790)

The use of oral targeted therapies draws new medical management but also new practices for the patients (compliance), their family and the healthcare professionals [1,2]. These therapies have sometimes heavy toxicity: side effects to identify, to treat, and for the patient to learn to manage. This situation underlines the importance of a therapeutic education to accompany this "learning" [3]. Nevertheless, in France, the therapeutic educational programs, built according to the "standards" of the therapeutic education (TE), are still very rare in cancer research [4]. In May 2012, a therapeutic educational program for these patients has been developed in the oncology department of the Teaching Hospital of Bordeaux through a multidisciplinary team. This program, dedicated to metastatic renal cancer patients treated by oral targeted therapies, becomes here an object of research: MODAP (action-research).

      At the diagnosis, 25 to 30 % of renal cancer patients present a metastatic disease. The prognosis remains dark in spite of the advent of the targeted therapies from 2007. Actually, the use of oral targeted therapies, most of the time carried out on an outpatient basis (sunitinib in particular), draws new medical management but also new practices for the patients (compliance), their family and the healthcare professionals [1,2].

      These therapies have sometimes heavy toxicity: side effects to identify, to treat, and for the patient to learn to manage. This situation underlines the importance of a therapeutic education to accompany this "learning" [3]. Nevertheless, the therapeutic educational programs, built according to the "standards" of the therapeutic education (TE), are still very rare in cancer research [4]: multiplicity of the pathology (a cancer, cancers), multiplicity of the patients' experiences, the difficulty of implementation? In May 2012, in front of the experience told by the patients and the professionals in the context of metastatic renal cancer, the members of the oncology department of the Teaching Hospital of Bordeaux, the therapeutic educational Federation, the Coordination Cancer Centre (3C), an anthropologist, an expert patient and a patient's association developed a therapeutic educational program for these patients [current approval].

      This program, built on the model of the TE in France, becomes here an object of research: MODAP (action-research).
