Managing GI Side Effects of Cancer Treatment | 1 CPEU


Many cancer treatment options work by attacking rapidly dividing cells. Unfortunately, this often results in destruction of healthy tissues too, including those lining the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. As a result, many oncology patients suffer from mucositis, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and other unpleasant side effects. These symptoms negatively impact nutritional intake, which can lead to malnutrition. The development of malnutrition may lead to treatment delays, debility, and poor quality of life. The role of good nutrition during cancer treatment cannot be overstated. Dietitians play a central role on the multidisciplinary treatment team. In this webinar, expert oncology dietitian, Federika Garcia, MS, RD, LD, CNSC, will discuss nutrition-focused ways to manage the GI side effects that are common to oncology treatment protocols.
