Introduction
I have a background (Master) in developmental psychology, and a PhD in Health Psychology. I'm working on prevention and quality of life in cancer patients. More exactly, I try to understand fatigue in this population. I developped self-assessment tools, and my research focuses on trajectories analysis (latent class analysis) and their psychosocial determiners. Futures researches will be oriented in interventional research, with the aim to enhance quality of life in cancer patients.

Résumé Introduction L’échelle des Sentiments Sur l’École (SSE), traduite et enrichie du Feelings about School (FAS : Valeski & Stipek, 2001), permet de disposer d’un outil d’évaluation efficient et écologique de l’épanouissement du jeune élève en zone francophone. L’échelle se fonde sur la théorie des processus auto-systémiques, soit sur la satisf...

Changes in health‐related quality of life (HRQoL) over time are not necessarily homogeneous within a population of interest. Our study aim was twofold: to determine homogeneous patient subpopulations distinguished by HRQoL trajectories, and to identify the particular patient profile associated with each subpopulation. To classify patients according...

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on university students, particulary on their mental health. However, little is yet known about how to prevent and/or reduce this impact. Prior to COVID-19, some studies have shown that online stress management programs were successful enough to improve students' mental health and stress adjustment strate...

Résumé L’alopécie, bien que longtemps considérée comme une conséquence inévitable de la thérapeutique anticancéreuse, représente actuellement un défi aux multiples facettes. La connaissance de la physiologie du cheveu et par voie de conséquence de la physiopathologie de l’alopécie a conduit à montrer qu’il n’y a pas une mais plusieurs types d’alopé...

Objective : This longitudinal prospective and observational study was designed to identify fatigue trajectories during a 6-month period of chemotherapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, and examine the psychosocial factors predicting these trajectories. Associations between fatigue and survival were also investigated. Methods : A tota...

BACKGROUND The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting abrupt changes in daily life and ways of learning has had a significant impact on university students, especially on their mental health. However, little is known on how to prevent and/or reduce its impact to date. Prior to COVID, some studies have shown that online stress management programs were...

Non-pharmacologic interventions to reduce cancer-related fatigue are declined into physical activities or psychosocial interventions. Hypnosis, is always combined with another therapy (as cognitive and behavioral therapy), so the evaluation of its own efficacy is limited. We decided to conduct a literature review to understand the hypnosis efficacy...

Dans la population générale, la fatigue reste un symptôme connu, banal et normalisé. Cette sensation disparaît après une période de repos, une sieste ou encore une bonne nuit de sommeil. Cependant, chez les personnes atteintes de cancer, ce symptôme diffère sur de nombreux aspects de la fatigue typique. Nous verrons à travers ce chapitre les partic...
Thesis
Cancer-related fatigue is a subjective and pervasive symptom, related to the disease and its treatments, and has a significant impact on patients' quality of life. This study has two fundamental goals: (1) to identify different fatigue trajectories in metastatic colorectal cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy; (2) to identify psychosocial determ...
Article
Purpose The MFI was developed in 1995 to assess fatigue as a multidimensional concept. This questionnaire has been widely translated and used; however, its multidimensional structure has not been consistent across studies. In addition there is a need for short questionnaires in the clinical context. Therefore, we aim to develop a MFI-short version...
Article
Purpose Cancer-Related Fatigue (CRF), subjective symptom, is considered the most prevalent and disabling in cancer. To help caregivers better understand it, we developed and evaluated the psychometric properties of a visual analog scale to assess daily CRF. Method In our qualitative study, we conducted interviews with caregivers, patients and scie...

Since the beginning of the pandemic, university students have faced many challenges and without any preparation. Studies conducted during the first lockdown all show a deterioration in students' mental health and an increase in unhealthy lifestyles. Yet, we have no knowledge of the long-term effects of the pandemic on university students. To provide a better understanding of the short- and long-term consequences on the health and well-being of university students a first line of research of this project aims to identify the role of individual factors and situational factors on students' psychological health and lifestyle, at different times of the pandemic (with four measurement times). To provide decision support for universities to reduce the impact of the pandemic on students, a second line of research will evaluate the health effects of two innovative programs (one focused on stress and learning, the other on physical activity). To realize these two axes of research, our project adopts a pluridisciplinary approach based on clinical psychology, health psychology, cognitive psychology, social innovation by design, nutrition and physical activity.
