iCanEAT PROJECT: CONSUMER POST-IMPLEMENTATION SURVEY
The results of the survey will help to inform the development of interactive resources to support implementation of a cancer nutrition care pathway. We are hoping to receive as many responses as possible in order to learn about your nutrition needs and experiences during your cancer journey.
This survey is one component of a project being undertaken by the Victorian Cancer Malnutrition Collaborative (VCMC) titled “iCanEAT: Implementation of the CanEAT pathway for people with cancer, carers and health professionals”. This project is funded by the Victorian Department of Health, with project oversight by the Nutrition Department at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
This project has been approved by the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Ethics Committee.
