Nutrition is a central pillar through all phases of cancer treatment. In this interactive course, you will learn foundational information about the role of nutrition in cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. Healthy and early nutrition interventions are fundamental to improving outcomes for patients with cancer. When patients become malnourished, they are less likely to receive their prescribed oncology treatment which may reduce the efficacy of treatment and lead to worsened clinical and prognostic outcomes.

Numerous studies have linked nutritional factors with the risk for developing different types of cancers, risk for recurrence, and likelihood of survival. A personalized nutrition cancer plan aims to minimize side effects from cancer treatments, achieve and maintain a healthy body weight, enhance quality of life, and prevent or correct nutritional deficiencies. Recent research has also demonstrated how various nutrients (macro, micro and phytonutrients) play a key role in preserving and augmenting various aspects of cellular immune function and reducing inflammatory mediators.

"Personalized Nutrition in Primary Care 2022: Nutrition in Cancer Prevention, Treatment and Survivorship" is a live CME course for health care providers in the primary care setting. This event is an opportunity to learn from experts in the field about nutrition and oncology that can translate to clinical practice. Participants will learn how to formulate personalized nutrition recommendations to support oncology care.

Target Audience

This course is designed for physicians, dietitians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare providers in primary care.
