Date/Time: October 25, 2023, 3:00 – 4:30 PM ET
Patients with cancer are at risk of malnutrition due to the inflammatory process, the site of the tumor, lack of appetite, problems with the tolerance of diet and nutrition support, psychological processes, and secondary effects of the oncologic therapy.
It is important to screen every patient at the cancer diagnostic appointment and perform a nutrition assessment if the risk of malnutrition is present, followed by deciding which type of nutrition support the patient should receive and subsequently monitoring for tolerance and possible complications.
