When Two Worlds Collide: Intersection of Bariatric and Oncology Nutrition

As more and more people undergo bariatric surgery oncology dietitians are increasingly likely to interact with this patient population. In 2019, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery estimated 256,000 patients received bariatric surgery. Bariatric patients present a unique challenge to the oncology dietitian. The intersection of patients being treated for cancer and having a history of bariatric surgery poses the risk for significant malnutrition which can negatively impact cancer treatment and outcomes. This talk will educate oncology dietitians on the common side effects of bariatric surgery and nutrition recommendations for bariatric patients including vitamins and minerals. Attendees will learn strategies to manage oncology patients with a history of bariatric surgery, including those who are malnourished and/or require nutrition support. Case studies will be used to illustrate management of this complex patient population.

CPEU: 1.0
CPE Level: 3
Performance Indicators: 10.1.2, 10.1.3, 8.1.4

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe nutritional challenges unique to cancer patients with a history of bariatric surgery.
  2. Describe common nutrition issues seen in post bariatric surgery patient.
  3. Develop/create/individualize treatment approaches to meet the needs of oncology patients who have undergone bariatric surgery.
