Have access to French Experts
Finding a cancer expert is not easy. Many criteria are taken into account: the location of the patient and the doctor, the type of cancer or the complexity of the disease. Already tried by the disease, people with cancer often embark on an obstacle course to find the most qualified Expert.
NetCancer relieves them of this time-consuming and stressful step by giving them access to a directory of more than 300 French cancer experts, all of whom are experts in their field. The repertoire is divided into 7 organs, i.e. 7 specialties:
– The breast
– The prostate
– The colon
– The bladder
– CAR T cells.
The list of practicing physicians identified on NetCancer is established from an internationally validated database. The medical practitioners present in this database are all recognized by the scientific and medical community. They are classified according to their number of publications in scientific and medical journals over the last ten years, the most recent being prioritized.
A valuable source of information: the drug directory
Caring for a cancer patient is also a challenge. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists must know the best possible treatments and the most appropriate innovations. Thanks to its Findrugs section, NetCancer has created and made available a glossary of drugs, all classified methodically by type of pathology and by adverse effect. This digital pharmacy is responsible for helping healthcare professionals to provide the best possible follow-up for their patients, in particular for innovative treatments.
Each drug has a very specific description. First, its dosage is indicated, followed by its mode of use. For total transparency, the action of the drug as well as the side effects are detailed. Thanks to videos of referent experts, the efficacy criteria of drugs and the undesirable effects that must be taken care of are shared with the medical community.
Training for healthcare professionals: NetCancer Academy
NetCancer is also positioned as a considerable asset for doctors, pharmacists and nurses by offering them e-learning training. The “academy” is made up of two parts: one for doctors and pharmacists, another for the nurse (s). Supervised by Professor Fabrice Barlesi and Doctor Olivier Mir, NetCancer has more than 180 online courses in video format and accompanied by powerpoint presentations materializing the training for the learner. Professionals can therefore choose the format that best suits their profiles. In addition, their progress is measurable thanks to interactive questionnaires. Training for nurses can be carried out either with the national agency for continuous development or in collaboration with the hospital in which the professional practices.
Community pharmacists can follow online training on the NetCancer site. From October 2021, consultations will be authorized in pharmacies, they will be able to use the platform to meet the obligation to train.
