Management of Gastrointestinal Side Effects of Cancer Treatment

Outline the types of GI side effects seen with cancer therapies highlighting some of the unique features of cancer therapy toxicity. Colitis secondary to immunotherapy would be an example. Discuss the differential diagnosis and the initial steps in working up these side effects since it is important to consider other causes of symptoms in addition to the patients therapy. Discuss treatment and management options and consider when it is important to involve specialists and subspecialists in the patient's care. Introduce potential benefits and limitations of endoscopy in the workup and management of these patients.

Nutrition Implications of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy

This presentation will describe the clinical history, purpose, and administration of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) and cytoreductive surgery (CRS) in various cancers involving the peritoneum. Common nutrition-impact symptoms, appropriate medical nutrition therapy, and metabolic needs will be thoroughly discussed in the preoperative, early postoperative, and long-term postoperative contexts. Participants will learn the importance of incorporating certain non-traditional elements into assessments and recommendations, and have the opportunity to apply these concepts in a case-study format. 

CPEU: 1.0
CPE Level: 3
Performance Indicators: 10.5.3, 8.2.1, 8.2.3

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe HIPEC and how its administration differs from standard chemotherapy;
  2. Review the disease states commonly treated using HIPEC and the nutrition concerns arising directly from these conditions;
  3. Explore various approaches for perioperative nutrition management of patients undergoing HIPEC.
