Clinique médicale l'Actuel's Journal Club

For 30 years, the Clinique médicale l’Actuel, under the medical direction of Dr. Réjean Thomas, has been bringing together healthcare professionals, with a focus in virology, to learn from guest experts and discuss the most relevant clinical practice challenges facing them today.

I-score: Introducing the patient’s perspective in the evaluation of ART

with Dr. Réjean Thomas and Dr. Bertrand Lebouché



  • Taking the patient’s perspective into account is an essential step in evaluating retroviral treatments
  • The tolerability of patients to treatment is a crucial factor in ensuring adherence
  • Using Patient-Reported Outcomes in the field of HIV therapy
  • I-score: an evaluation tool for the timely detection of the risks of non-adherence

Patient’s Perspective in HIV Treatment

In this program, Dr. Bertrand Lebouché discusses the importance of the patient’s perspective in evaluating antiretroviral treatments.

Despite their high virological efficicacy, we still see a number of these treatments failing, mainly due to patients not adhering to their treatment. It is important to take into account the patient’s perception of the treatment, which very often differs from the doctor’s perception. The use of patient-reported outcomes in HIV therapy, along with the eventual development of the I-score, could enable the timely detection of the risks of non-adherence.
