Impact of the Nurse Visit on Observance of the Intake of Oral Carcinological Treatment in the Elderly


Brief description of study

The increasingly used oral anticancer treatments allow the patient to reduce treatment and social constraints to reduce hospitalization costs. The counterpart is a decrease in the monitoring of the correct intake of drugs and the detection of side effects. These two risks are major in the elderly, due to comorbidities, poly-medication and decreased attention. The project objective to evaluate the impact of a bi-weekly nursing visit to the patients' homes for 3 months, compared to a conventional management without a nursing visit. It is a prospective, randomized, controlled, multicenter study to include 224 patients over 18 months. The impact will be assessed by counting the tablets not taken and by filling an observation booklet with the nurse at home.
