Formatted Abstract/Summary
Significant nutritional issues facing people with cancer undergoing treatment include weight loss, treatment-related side effects and the presence of nutritional impact symptoms. Appropriate nutritional care is an essential component of a comprehensive cancer care service and all members of the multidisciplinary team should play a proactive role in addressing the nutritional needs of patients. Key aspects include the identification of malnutrition by nutritional screening and assessment, setting of appropriate goals, nutritional intervention (determining the nutritional prescription and implementation of the nutritional care plan), evaluation and monitoring. The success of nutritional care in improving patient outcomes is dependent upon the intensity of the care provided and positive clinical outcomes, such as improvements in dietary intake, maintenance of nutritional status and improvement in quality of life have been demonstrated in recent randomised controlled studies.
