Nutritional Care of Individuals with Cancer 

Nutritional impairments in individuals with cancer are all too common and can have negative outcomes. Early identification of nutritional concerns and implementation of a plan of care to address these issues is essential. Clinicians must understand factors that can affect nutritional status, nutritional conditions that are common among individuals with cancer, be able to conduct an assessment of the individual to identify nutritional concerns, and employ interventions to improve nutritional status.
