Oncology Care and Rehab: What Nutrition Can Offer
Copyright :


Allied health professionals in the field of oncology care and rehabilitation don’t have time to read nutrition research despite nutrition education being part of their scope of practice. They can be just as confused as their patients when it comes to interpreting conflicting nutrition messages. Understanding the nutrition research, having confidence to discuss it with their patients and assist in goal setting can positively impact patient outcomes. Instead, clinicians may be avoiding the subject of nutrition, passing along incorrect or outdated information and lacking current guidance and teaching tools to assist clients in achieving their full potential. After completing this program, clinicians will be confident in addressing patients nutrition questions, can ask appropriate questions and can assist patients in making positive changes that can lead to improved outcomes.
