Cancer Outpatient Nutritional Status

Despite existence of nutrition education programs, many cancer patients are not implementing recommendations into their daily lives.

Nutrition plays a key role in the recovery and treatment experience for cancer patients. Multiple programs exist in Toronto to educate patients as to what they should eat to improve their recovery. These programs also provide meal preparation tips that consider treatment side effects, ingredient seasonality, convenience, and more.
