The effects of anticancer treatments and cancerous pathology most often lead to tissue defects, deformities and mobility limitations that significantly alter the functions of chewing, swallowing, breathing and communication. These complications are taken care of by different practioners belonging to different specialties.
The odontological care of cancer patients must be part of a multidisciplinary collaboration, indeed, it aims to plan and optimize the conduct of care in relation with the progress of anti-cancer treatment (Radiotherapy, chemotherapy, etc.).
The objective of this work is to focus on the areas of collaboration between the specialist in maxillofacial prosthosontic and the radiotherapist / oncologist and to propose a liaison sheet between these two practioners to facilitate communication and achieve a symbiosis.
This liaison sheet constitutes a tool streamlining the multidisciplinary consultation between the odontologist and the radiotherapist / oncologist and consequently facilitating the care of these patients.
