Dr Françoise Desarnaults – Psychiatre
2020 grant
Dr Françoise Desarnaults
Fondation du Bon Sauveur in Alby

Introduction of aromatherapy in supportive oncology care

Françoise is convinced of the importance of a range of non-drug approaches for relieving patients and their families of the psychological suffering associated with cancer. Her unit offers a range of psychophysical treatments to reduce their anxiety: art therapy, writing, meditation and touch and massage with essential oils.
She wanted to assess the benefits of using essential oils associated with Nursing Touch® in managing anxiety disorders.

The Foundation grant allows her to fund the piloting of a new protocol and its clinical evaluation on anxiety by comparing two treatments: Nursing Touch® with or without essential oils.
