AN INTERDISCIPLINARY DEPARTMENT OF SUPPORT CARE FOR CANCER PATIENTS (DISSPO)
DISSPO, which is composed of doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, socio-beautician, sophrologist, dieticians, intervenes transversally in the care units of Lacassagne.
It takes into account symptoms related to the disease or the treatment of patients at all stages (curative, palliative and healing) and the difficulties of those around them, to improve quality of life.
The main symptoms concerned are pain, fatigue, nutritional or digestive disorders, psychological disorders or social difficulties, functional rehabilitation disorders, concerns about body image, etc.
Coordination between the different professionals of the Department is ensured by consultation meetings where clinical situations are discussed. Other committees such as CLUD (Pain Control Committee) and CLAN (Food Nutrition Liaison Committee) meet to decide on the general policy of the establishment concerning these two disciplines.
DISSPO provides training to the care teams of the institution.
The medical assistants of the Department of Support Care located on the ground floor of building A, welcome you from Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 17:00.
TO CONTACT THE DISSPO: 04 92 03 15 46.
All DISSPO professionals are available in the hospitalization units at the request of the medical and paramedical teams.
Most providers also offer outpatient consultations by appointment.
The interdisciplinary support care team works closely with the caregivers of the hospital units and medical-technical services of the establishment but also with the medical and external medical teams that accompany you throughout your care (attending doctor, caregivers, care facilities, after-care service, …)
