The CanEAT pathway for health professionals

How to deliver optimal nutrition care

All health professionals are vital in delivering optimal nutrition care to patients and their carers – The CanEAT pathway can help you do this. 3 in 5 people with cancer will experience a nutrition impact symptom. Nutrition needs, risks and interventions vary with cancer type, treatment, and time-points in the cancer path. Your own learning needs can be enhanced through using The CanEAT pathway.
