There has been significant effort on the part of practitioners and researchers to advance the care of cancer survivors through evidence-based guidance. Several new reports and initiatives have been developed to coalesce the current evidence and develop specific care-based recommendations for health care practitioners, including dietetics professionals.
This session will review the evidence supporting three such documents including the American Society for Clinical Oncology position statement on Obesity and Cancer (2014), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Survivorship guidelines (2017) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) Guidelines for Nutrition and Physical Activity (2017 update). Attendees will be provided specific ideas for applying these guidelines in their practice settings to support evidence-based practice and dissemination of standardized practice models. Leaders in the field who served as authors on these documents will deliver this timely information.
