Cancer: Nutritional support before, during and after treatment
Safe, practical and evidence-informed nutritional support for people affected by cancer may enhance the effectiveness of medical treatments and reduce side effects; reduce the risk of cancer recurrence and improve overall wellbeing.
ION’s updated three-day course aims to help practitioners gain confidence across a range of cancers by setting a foundation for further understanding and exploration.
Specific cases will be used to illustrate common treatment regimens for colorectal, breast, ovarian and lung cancer cases and melanoma cases and appropriate nutritional support alongside these.
Day 1 - Cancer pathophysiology, medical definitions and conventional and newer treatment modalities
Day 2 - Integrative nutrition support through the cancer journey alongside mainstay treatments
Day 3 - Integrative nutrition support through the cancer journey alongside novel therapies
