Macmillan The Acute Oncology – Nutrition e-learning module

Healthy food

 

The Acute Oncology – Nutrition e-learning module from Macmillan Cancer Support has recently received endorsement from the British Dietetic Association (BDA), the professional body for Dietitians in the UK.

 

The prevalence of malnutrition in people living with cancer can be as high as 62% according to the latest figures from The British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (Malnutrition and Nutritional Care Survey, BAPEN, 2023). This module explores the impact of malnutrition and how to support people living with cancer to identify, prevent, or manage it. It also discusses nutritional guidelines for general populations, and other nutritional concerns such as weight gain during treatment and the value of alternative and complementary diets.
