Département interdisciplinaire de soins de support
Les objectifs des équipes rattachées au département interdisciplinaire de soins de support pour le patient en oncologie (DISSPO) sont la prévention et le traitement des symptômes, le soutien psychologique, l'accompagnement des maladies, l'évaluation des difficultés sociales… L'Institut Curie perpétue une longue tradition qui privilégie la personne malade à l'organe atteint et marque sa volonté de participer à l'élaboration d'une conception moderne de la santé publique.

There are numerous research programs aimed at improving the effectiveness of treatments and patient comfort.

The supportive care department gathered multidisciplinary specialists: psycho-oncologists, onco-geriatricians, pain specialists, hypnotherapists, nutritionists, physiotherapists, social workers, socio-aestheticians, in order to improve life quality for both patients and their families throughout the illness, in addition to the actual anti-cancer treatment.
