No two oncology patients have identical nutritional needs. This session addresses how a dietician makes recommendations, taking into consideration patient/family preferences, cancer type, form of treatment the patient is receiving, and what nutrition impact symptoms the patient is experiencing. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Cancer Care: Enhancing Communication, Swallowing, and Quality of Life.”

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • describe the metabolic changes that occur with cancer
  • explain the importance of preventing excess weight loss or weight gain
  • identify nutrition impact symptoms that affect a patient’s ability to consume adequate amounts of calories, protein, and fluid
