There is a growing body of evidence that a person’s nutritional status has an impact on cancer incidence, survival and recovery. Different dietary strategies are available to support recovery after a cancer diagnosis based on studies of cancer mechanisms, although there is scant data from definitive human trials. For practitioners in this clinical field, it can be challenging to appropriately apply this evidence to support safe and effective nutritional support.

This course helps practitioners develop personalised nutrition plans for their clients living with and beyond cancer based on available evidence. It will review tumour-specific risk factors and functional systems relevant to malignancy and consider how to address metabolic, hormonal and microbiological factors. The course also covers practical support, including how best to monitor a client’s progress and support their motivation and how to develop effective inter-professional collaborations.
