Nutrition and Exercise: Supporting Cancer Patients Throughout Their Journey
In this course, faculty will describe the relationship between malnutrition and sarcopenia, and the impact on treatment outcomes for people diagnosed with cancer; discuss the role of nutrition and exercise in cancer prehabilitation and throughout the cancer journey; review nutritional requirements of patients with cancer and the evidence for use of high protein, beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) and vitamin D.
Integrating Muscle Measures in Practice to Improve Patient-Centred Outcomes
In this course, you’ll identify the multifactorial aetiology of frailty, including malnutrition and sarcopenia as major risk factors; describe the factors that contribute to malnutrition in oncology and the impact of muscle loss in treatment and recovery; explain the importance of functional parameters and introduce practical tools for screening and diagnosing muscle loss; and describe interventions to support and improve muscle health in clinical practice. Originally presented live on November 22, 2022.
Management of Paediatric Disease-Related Malnutrition Where GI Intolerance is a Concern: Practical Case Studies
In this course, the faculty will describe diagnoses, conditions, and situations where peptide-feeding may be indicated; review how to recognise and appraise the heterogeneity of patient groups; explain the nutrient profile and composition of peptide feeds and their relevance to patient groups; and discuss how peptide feeding can support nutrition using practical case studies. Originally presented as a live webinar on September 15, 2022.
Reconsidering Feeding Difficulties in Clinical Practice
In this course, Mauro Fisberg, MD, PhD will review the current definition and prevalence of feeding difficulties in children >1 year of age; examine risk factors for feeding difficulties; identify potential nutritional consequences; and discuss management strategies for feeding difficulties. Originally presented as a live webinar on June 7, 2022.
Nutrition in Cancer Care: From Screening to Prehabilitation
In this course, Julia McAdam, RGN, PGDip, MA, will discuss the impact of malnutrition and loss of muscle for oncology patients; identify practical ways to assess malnutrition and muscle mass and function; introduce the importance of nutrition as a key part of prehabilitation; and explain the nutritional needs of malnourished oncology patients.
