Five to ten percent of cancers are of occupational origin but only 0.5% of cancers are compensable occupational diseases recognized in 2001. The project "Curriculum Laboris" was launched in Midi-Pyrenees with the objective to establish an organization to improve the identification, reporting and recognition of occupational cancers. The project consisted firstly in creating an online training module for professionals. Furthermore, a pilot has identified patients with lung, bladder, head and neck or hematologic cancer. Afterwards, four investigators realized an interview with the patients "marked" to define their careers. Finally, a group of experts produced advice, providing the general practitioner, the aid element in drafting the initial medical certificate (CMI) as part of the recognition process. Twenty-three patients were identified, 21 surveys were carried out. Six returns were filed and actually recognized. The generalization of our device measures meet the Cancer Plan II 2009 to 2013 and may improve the number of cancers recognized as compensable occupational diseases.
