There are about 115 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Morocco. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
Post Mastectomy Pain Syndrome (PMPS) is a major complication of breast surgery responsible for depression and disability. The project consists of a prospective cohort on patients going for oncological breast surgery at National Institute of Oncology of Rabat. Chronic postoperative pain (CPP) remains a disturbing and obscure clinical problem, which could last for more than 3 months after surgery. The aim of present study was to assess the prevalence of CPP, investigate its impact on life quality and explore its potential risk factors. After informed consent was signed, patients receiving surgery under general anesthesia in Peking Union Medical College Hospital and other medical centers participating in this study during 2018 will be included. Patients' preoperative information will be collected from medical record, including basic demographic data, primary disease and previous chronic diseases. Intraoperative information will be obtained from anesthesia record, including surgical scope, duration, length and location of incisions and blood loss. Acute pain will be evaluated in the ward of the department of surgery, when an app will be installed on patients' mobile phones. Our long-term postoperative follow-up would be performed by sending out survey questionnaires via this app in the 4th, 8th, 16th, 32th, and 48th weeks after surgery. The survey covers questions regarding the intensity, characteristic, location and impact on daily activities of CPP. Information regarding treatment of CPP will also be collected, if any. All the data gained will be summarized in our database and analyzed.
The QoR-15 Is a post operative recovery score developed in 2013 from the QoR-40 with an advantage of simplification. The investigators Aim to translate and to validate a such useful score in Arabic adapted for Morocco by a full psychometric evaluation of the Arabic version, by testing its validity, reliability, responsiveness, and clinical acceptability and feasibility, with patients undergoing abdominal, thoracic, gynecological surgery, or digestive endoscopy in the National Institute of Oncology of Rabat, affiliated to Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco.
This study compares 2 medicines for type 2 diabetes: semaglutide (new medicine) and a dummy medicine (placebo). Semaglutide will be tested to see how well it works compared to the dummy medicine. The study will also test if semaglutide is safe in children and teenagers. Participants will either get semaglutide or the dummy medicine - which one is decided by chance. Participants will take 1 tablet of the study medicine every morning on an empty stomach. They have to wait 30 minutes before they eat, drink or take any other medication by mouth. The study will last for about 1 year and 3 months (66 weeks). Participants will have 12 clinic visits and 8 phone calls with the study doctor. At all 12 clinic visits, participants will have blood samples taken. Participants will also be asked some questions.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of minimally invasive surgery and compare the outcomes with patients undergoing thoracotomy in treatment of Pulmonary Hydatid Cyst. Disease : pulmonary hydatid cyst. Intervention: - Group 1 : VATS approach. - Group 2 : thoracotomy approach.
The aim of this project is to audit the surgical care in patients treated for colorectal adenocarcinoma. This study focused on collecting data from all consecutive cases of colon and rectal adenocarcinoma operated at the National Institute of Oncology in Rabat during a two-years period. Using standardized forms, the investigators collected data relating to each stage of treatment: pre-therapeutic, surgical and post-operative in order to measure the quality of the surgical care delivered. These results were compared to established benchmarks and to similar audit studies carried out in other countries around the world.
This South Initiative is the first step towards a long-term general objective that aims to improve the manage-ment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and concurrently create jobs for health professionals in Eastern Morocco by developing a multidisciplinary approach in the management of T2D, based upon international guidelines but adapted to the regional socio-economic and cultural context, and with a focus on empowerment of Muslim women. The intermediate results of this SI project proposal are: 1) Facilitators and perceived barriers in female patients with T2D towards change to a healthier lifestyle are known. 2) Characteristics of patients with T2D in the region of Oujda (prevalence, lifestyle, age, gender,…) are analysed. 3) Master and bachelor students have gained experience by participating to relevant research. 4) All involved stakeholders shared existing and newly ac-quired knowledge and expertise. 5) Facilitators and perceived barriers in health professionals of different disciplines to work together in the management of T2D are known.
After rectal resection for cancer of the lower rectum, the restoration of continuity is done by a colo-anal anastomosis with a protective ileostomy. However, the ileostomy is very little accepted by patients. It is associated with significant morbidity and a deterioration in the quality of life. Delayed colo-anal anastomosis has been proposed as an alternative to direct colo-anal anastomosis with a protective ileostomy. The theoretical advantage of this technique is to reduce the risk of anastomotic leaks and to avoid ileostomy. In this study, the investigators will retrospectively evaluate the short and midterm results of this technique.
Aim of this study is to compare the cost-effectiveness and the quality of life in the 6 months following the surgery of a pseudo continent perineal colostomy (PCPC) and a permanent left iliac colostomy (PLIC) following an abdominoperineal resection (APR) for ultra low rectal cancer
The aim of this study is to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of the C Protein Reactive (CRP) for the detection of Anastomotic leakage after surgery for digestive cancer. The standard protocol in our unit is to measure the CRP on the second and fourth postoperative day. The main aim of the study is to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of the ratio CRP on the fourth postoperative day on CRP on the second postoperative day (CRP_D4/CRP_D2). Secondary outcomes are the diagnosis accuracy of the CRP_D4 and CRP_D2.
Learning organizations need a diagnostic tool that allows them to assess how well their team, department or the entire institution is performing, that allow them identify areas of improvement. In turn, having that tool in your own language (in this case French) and adapted to your own context, gives reliability and ease of application. Health organizations are starting to use more and more tools like this that allow them to improve their learning capabilities and therefore their performance. Aim : described the translation of Garvin's et al. Learning Organization Survey into French to evaluate french speaking health organizations.
