On-demand | Cancer: Nutritional support before, during and after treatment and beyond

Presented by Dr Carol Granger DProf BSc(Hons) MSc MRSB CBiol FBANT, this course will provide safe, practical and evidence-informed nutritional support for people affected by cancer. Nutrition practitioners working with people diagnosed with cancer need to understand the range of treatments their clients may receive, and treatments have evolved considerably, from ‘mainstay’ treatments with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. Newer targeted treatments, biological drugs, and immunotherapy drug regimens are now widely used and these need to be understood by practitioners when developing their recommendations.

Practitioners are required to have additional skills beyond their primary qualification, to meet the needs of working in this clinical field. Nutrition professionals also need to understand how to effectively communicate and collaborate with medical teams to support their clients in an integrative paradigm.
