In 2019, a SiRIC CURAMUS interdisciplinary team led by Marie-Pierre Dann, specialised clinical nurse (Hematology Department of the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital) won the Force Hemato award with « Trials of Damocles ». This research project aims better to understand the needs, expectations and experiences of patients diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), stage A. About half of these patients, under active surveillance and often asymptomatic, may not ever need treatment. This short paper aims to present the context and the interrogations of this research project as well as to explain how the humanities and social sciences, and more particularly philosophy, may bring a pertinent and precious outlook on such a topic.
