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.

Personalised medicine approaches are playing an increasingly important role in cancer prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutics.  Health practitioners now working in this field need to understand both ‘mainstay’ treatment options i.e. chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery as well as newer biological and immunotherapy drug regimens when developing their recommendations. Practitioners also need to understand related terminology and how to effectively communicate and collaborate with medical teams within this new paradigm.

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.
