Clinical Trial Summary

Prospective, open-label, randomized, single-center study evaluating the benefit of a months long monthly telephone follow-up for patients with chronic disorders following the after-effects of anti-cancer treatments after an intensive rehabilitation stay versus standard follow-up.


Clinical Trial Description

Upper aerodigestive tract (UAT) cancer is a malignant tumor in the hypopharynx, larynx, oropharynx and oral cavity. In 2017, 15,000 new cases of cancers of the upper aero-digestive tract were identified: which in France places them among the most frequent cancers. The treatments used to treat UAT cancers are of three types: surgery, radiotherapy and radio chemotherapy and can have significant functional consequences, in particular on swallowing and phonation. This therapeutic management is routinely associated with supportive care, in order to ensure the functional rehabilitation that will allow the maintenance of the quality of life of these patients as well as their entourage by reducing the side effects of the treatments and the effects of disease. Intensive rehabilitation is offered to patients who have been treated for UAT cancer in order to speed up the learning of new behaviors and improve their memorization. Thus, these patients benefit from intensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation within the Intensive Reeducation Center for Laryngectomees. However, it is not uncommon to see patients return for a second stay following a loss of the benefits learned, in particular on the swallowing function, omissions of food safety instructions or an interruption of local rehabilitation. Studies have shown that remote monitoring can have a positive impact on the health of these patients. However, no study has assessed the impact of such monitoring on functional swallowing abilities. This study will asses the impact of a monthly phone call during 6 months on patients with chronic swallowing disorders compared to the routine follow up. The telephone interviews will mainly consist of questionnaires. ;
