      IDE Announcement Consultations

      There are nursing announcement consultation slots on Tuesdays and Thursdays .

      4 nurses are trained in this activity. If the person cared for wishes, a family member or support person may be present on the day of the announcement. The caregiver listens to the patient in order to understand his level of information and his concerns. He reformulates what was said during the medical consultation, informs about the course of care, and above all assesses the patient's needs for support care.

      Clinical Pharmacy in Hematology

      The clinical pharmacy activity within the Institute of Hematology of Lower Normandy (IHBN) revolves around different missions:

      • Pharmaceutical analysis of service prescriptions.
      • Medication reconciliation on admission and discharge, which consists of establishing an exhaustive list of the medications taken by the patient before hospitalization and comparing it with the first prescription made in the department. The process is the same at discharge with a comparison of the treatments usually taken by the patient and the discharge prescription. In addition, the latter is passed on to health professionals working in the city, which helps to strengthen the city-hospital link.
      • The retrocession of medication in the service for targeted patients.

       

      The clinical pharmacist delivers information to the patient on his drug treatment by carrying out pharmaceutical consultations (initiation/monitoring). These consultations are carried out for patients initiating oral chemotherapy treatment, patients included in clinical research protocols are also concerned. In addition, these consultations are carried out face-to-face or remotely (teleconsultation, telephone interview). At the end of these consultations, information is transmitted to the various health professionals, strengthening the city-hospital link.

      In addition, the clinical pharmacist has an advisory role with the medical and paramedical team and recalls good practices for prescribing and administering medication.

      The clinical pharmacist is an integral part of the medical team of the care unit and participates in department meetings (multidisciplinary consultation meeting ( RCP ), medical staff, medical executive meeting, etc.).

      Lymph node care pathway or lymphoma circuit

      The lymph node pathway is a regional care pathway, centralized at the Basse Normandie Institute of Hematology, at the Caen University Hospital, whose main objective is to enable diagnosis and rapid treatment of hematological pathologies of lymphoma type.

      This course links hematology doctors specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of lymphomas and various regional specialists essential to this sector of care.

      Lymphomas include a number of dozens of pathologies. It is a cancer of certain types of white blood cells, located in the lymph nodes, bone marrow and blood. Other locations are possible.

      The main warning sign suggesting a lymphoma pathology is the presence of a subcutaneous swelling, a lymph node, of size > 1.5 cm, non-painful, non-red, gradually evolving in size over several weeks to months. The usual locations are the neck, under the armpits or in the groin.

      Other signs can alert you, such as an increase in the size of the spleen (splenomegaly) or the presence of deep lymph nodes (adenopathy) on an imaging test (for example a CT scan).

      The classic care pathway involves a consultation with a general practitioner or specialist who then addresses the course.

      It is also possible for any patient to contact us directly to make a consultation appointment (number below).

      The time before a first consultation is less than 7 days.

      The classic diagnostic process, in the event of suspicion of lymphoma confirmed by the specialist doctor, lasts 1 to 2 months and includes:

      • A biopsy (surgical or radiological) within 1 to 3 weeks, with results then obtained in around two weeks.
      • A PET scanner in nuclear medicine.
      • A cardiac evaluation by cardiac ultrasound or cardiac scintigraphy.
      • Central venous line placement (radiologically or surgically)
      • A blood test.

      If the diagnosis is confirmed, regular treatment using antibodies or chemotherapy products begins shortly after the diagnosis is made.

      All treatment is validated collegially in a multidisciplinary Consultation Meeting at the Base Normandy Hematology Institute.

      JACIE Accredited Adult Hematology Service
      jacie

      Since 2008, the transplantation unit of the adult hematology department has engaged in a quality approach called JACIE and obtained this accreditation in December 2013 for 4 years. This accreditation is issued by the European accreditation office for hematopoietic stem cell transplant centers after a 3-day external audit.

      The team analyzed the different stages of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in adults. She has built and validated operational procedures concerning all of the care from the visit before the transplant to the course of the transplant and including possible complications.

      The implementation of this approach is steered by a multidisciplinary steering committee led by Dr. Reman (director of the clinical program) .

      Clinical Research Unit

      Clinical research is a flagship activity of the Institute.

      The Institute of Hematology is the main player in research and medical innovation in the management of benign and malignant hematological pathologies in Western Normandy.

      The institute employs 7 clinical research associates as well as a nurse whose activity is dedicated solely to research.

      More than 80 clinical studies are operational each year, allowing us to provide patients in the region with access to innovation and new drugs to treat their disease.

      This unit works in close coordination with the Clinical Research Center of the University Hospital of Caen and associated with the CLIP 2 of the François Baclesse Center for access to early phase studies.
