The importance of managing patient nutrition in the early stages of radiation treatment
Description: Merran Findlay, a senior oncology dietitian at The University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia, discusses her view on patient nutrition during early stages of radiation treatment. As a patient initially undergoes radiation treatment, often they feel the minimal side effects. Further into the treatment however, patients may experience side effects that impact their nutrition. Typically, once treatment finishes, the side effects may increase, increasing the need for patients to be in contact and seek advice from their dietitians, medical treating staff and speech pathologists.
Recorded at the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) and International Society of Ocular Oncology (ISOO) 2016 Annual Meeting on Supportive Care in Cancer held in Adelaide, Australia.
