Implementation of the CanEAT pathway 2020-2022

The iCanEAT project: Implementation of the CanEAT pathway for people with cancer, carers and health professionals



  1. To modify the CanEAT pathway The CanEAT pathway into a more useable and interactive format utilising experience based co-design (EBCD) methodology to develop resources, based on identified priority areas/gaps in current practice, to support pathway implementation
  2. To conduct multi-site implementation evaluation of the updated CanEAT pathway via clinical utility testing and evaluation of tailored implementation on CanEAT pathway uptake (implementation challenges and enablers, acceptability, feasibility and sustainability).


This project included 5 stages and was completed over an 18-month period (November 2020 – May 2022), as summarised in the figure 1 below.

Insights into patient, carer and health professional views on cancer nutrition information and care have been gained. Co-design workshops enabled the CanEAT pathway to be updated and enhanced through the addition of 46 new interactive cancer nutrition resources, that are freely available to the public. Effective dissemination to support increased uptake and the implementation of the CanEAT pathway and new resources has been completed throughout the project and will continue to be completed after project end.
