Représentations institutionnelles du cancer [Institutional representations of cancer]
Current institutional and official representations of cancer are: coordination, integration, team approaches, quality management, full informed consent, patient centered communication and empowerment. Web access, comprehensive care plan summaries patient centered healthcare interactions and evidence-based programs are different ways of delivering the comprehensive care and follow-up cancer survivors deserve. The question remains, how to best explore and respect, in the meantime, more subjective dimensions such as patient beliefs, values, the meaning of the illness, preferences and needs. These aspects are fundamental elements in the construction of a trusting relationship, so as to find common ground, to be open to discuss anxiety and doubts and to provide information tailored to suit the patient's level of understanding, in order to reduce vulnerability to the feeling of being "lost in transition".
