Session Summary:
The incidence of cancer has increased relentlessly in every age group especially in younger ages. Nutrition and lifestyle are powerful cancer interventions for prevention, adjunctive therapy and survival cases and often not utilized in oncology practice beyond preventing weight loss. This webinar will present practical nutritional and lifestyle assessment guidelines with nutrient therapies that can be developed for intervention to improve the client’s outcome. Cancer is strongly associated with nutrient insufficiencies that increase the risk of cancer development and progression. An Oncology Nutrition Assessment checklist will be provided for attendee practitioners working with oncology patients.
