Alliance Mondiale Contre le Cancer, INCTR’s French Branch has endorsed the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) statement on “Standards and Clinical Practice Guidelines in Cancer Care”. The guidelines were put forward by the Union for International Cancer Control and IPOS in order to address supportive care issues for cancer patients and their families. More specifically, these guidelines state that quality cancer care must integrate the psychosocial domain into routine care and that distress should be measured as the 6th vital sign after temperature, blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate and pain. For more information about the statement, please visit the IPOS web site:
