Healthy nutrition and early nutrition intervention are fundamental to improving oncology patient outcomes. When patients become malnourished, they are less likely to receive their full oncology treatment and may require treatment breaks, treatment holds or dose reductions, which may reduce the efficacy of their treatment. In this interactive case study, you will explore how to integrate nutrition support into the care of a patient receiving a stem cell transplantation. Learn more about the characteristics of malnutrition, nutrition impact symptoms, and appropriate nutrition interventions. The case focuses on integrating nutrition support and early screening and interventions.
