Abstract 2358


Routine Electronic Monitoring of HRQoL (REMOQOL) in daily clinical care with real-time feedback to physicians could help to manage treatment-related toxicities, to personalize supportive care, and to assess the treatment benefit from the patients’ point of view. Physicians’ satisfaction with REMOQOL was evaluated in two French clinical trials (CT) assessing its feasibility.


Physicians’ satisfaction was evaluated in two CT: QOLIBRY a monocentric CT for breast, lung and colorectal cancers, and QUANARIE a multicentric CT involving 8 centres of France for renal cancer. Patients were invited to complete before each visit the EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire, cancer site-specific modules and selected items related to treatments, using the CHES software on tablets and/or computers at the hospital or at home. During the visit, the physicians had real-time access to visual summaries of HRQoL scores evolution. Physicians’ satisfaction was evaluated with a questionnaire specifically designed for these CT. The questionnaire addressed 43 items and aimed to evaluate if REMOQOL was a useful tool for the physician and the usability of the CHES software.


Between September 2016 and March 2019, 45 physicians included 249 patients (QOLIBRY n = 193, QUANARIE n = 56). Twenty-six (58%) physicians completed the survey. Among them, 18 (69%) looked at the HRQoL results. HRQoL results helped to better understand the patient’s medical condition for 11 (61%) of the physicians. Discussion about HRQoL results with the patient was easy (n = 15; 83%) and REMOQOL improved communication with patients (n = 8; 44%). Physicians declared that REMOQOL helped them to adapt patient’s management (n = 10; 56%) and to support supportive care prescription (n = 8; 44%) without extending the time of consultations (n = 12; 67%). Seventy-three per cent (n = 19) would agree to integrate REMOQOL for all patients in their daily practice.


Physicians used REMOQOL as a complementary tool and were globally satisfied. However, information about the objectives, trainings and recommendations for using HRQoL results in routine are essentials and must be enhanced to involve all the physicians.
