Exploring nutritional therapy practitioner perspectives on working with people affected by cancer
Introduction: Nutrition can impact significantly on cancer occurrence, recurrence and survival. Many people affected by cancer seek individualised nutrition advice, but globally this remains an unmet need for many. Nutritional therapy (NT) practitioners provide personalised nutritional care, including complementary care for people affected by cancer. Until now, there is little documentation internationally of NT practice with people affected by cancer. This mixed methods study explores NT practitioners' perspectives, to inform professional development needs to ensure safe evidence-based practice with people affected by cancer.
