Supporting the patient according to the CAPRI orientation recommendations

Resilience asks about adverse events in a qualitative and quantitative manner,

with alert mechanisms based on the algorithms of Ethan Basch (STAR, PRO-TECT) and Gustave Roussy (CAPRI):

  • qualitatively since the last questionnaire, according to severity, frequency and impact on habits

  • quantitatively – these questions must give initial indications as to the CTCAE grade and appropriate treatment.

The correspondence between the alert level and the CTCAE grade (and therefore the appropriate management) must be confirmed by the caregiver by phone. The distribution of roles and responsibilities is performed by each health facility.

Caregivers will have to agree on the level of autonomy of the nurse(s) in charge of patient follow-up, to trigger a medical appointment or a supportive care appointment, for example. This can be the subject of a dedicated co-operation protocol.
