The follow-up of cancer patients is a major challenge faced by Western healthcare systems, given demographic and epidemiological constraints. Within this context, patient follow-up involves basic organisational issues: how do you ensure the continuity of follow-up, while efficiently using the time of medical professionals? The clinical trial launched in Haute-Normandie aims at implementing a joint follow-up process involving specialists and a large number of general practitioners. Our objective is to monitor the quality of this follow-up process, comparing it with the traditional follow-up process (i.e. performed only by specialists). Following discussions within the framework of a Franco-British project (the EU-supported Interreg Project), it was agreed to include British teams in the trial. This partnership will enable us to extend the scope of the trial (more patients recruited) and demonstrate -- if our hypothesis is confirmed -- that a joint follow-up process, including the active involvement of general practitioners, is effective, regardless of the healthcare system.
