When cancer is diagnosed in patients aged over 75 years, the following healthcare options are designed to offer perfectly adapted treatment to suit the person’s specific situation:

  • a medical oncogeriatric consultation (in the supportive care consultation department – 4th floor left),
  • an in-depth geriatric assessment in the day hospital, over a half-day and, if possible, with an accompanying adult (in the supportive care  day hospital on your right on the 4th floor)

Indeed, all types of treatment can be considered for elderly patients, but they must also be adapted in line with the patient’s overall health status and any potential fragilities.

Geriatric fragility screening (using the Oncodage G8 tool) can be conducted by the medical oncologist, surgeon or nurse practitioner. This helps identify patients requiring to be referred for an oncogeriatric assessment consultation.

This consultation enables us to appreciate:

  • autonomy,
  • associated pathologies,
  • treatment and its interactions,
  • cognitive function (memory disorders),
  • mood (anxiety, depression),
  • nutritional status,
  • pain,
  • risk of falling,
  • social environment.

Healthcare offer

At the centre, oncogeriatric care begins over a half-day assessment, conducted from Monday to Friday, in the day hospital on the 3rd floor.

The team

For this assessment, patients are asked to come to the Centre in the company of a close relation. During the consultation, they will meet with a multidisciplinary team comprised of:

  • a specialised nurse for an assessment of memory, mood, walking and autonomy.
  • two advanced practice nurses (APN) for consultations and assessments,
  • a social worker to assess needs, help in day-to-day life (home help, etc.)
  • a dietician to assess nutrition and offer advice on diet,
  • three physicians trained in geriatrics and in oncology to summarise all previous assessments:
    • Dr Isabelle Crinière
    • Dr Marianne Hamon
    • Dr Anne Joyon
