Nutrition counseling for prevention, treatment and recovery.
Dietary issues can arise at anytime during cancer care and have a significant impact on quality of life. The Saint Joseph Cancer Center Resource Services' Clinical Dietitian is available to provide nutrition counseling before, during and after treatment. She can conduct a thorough assessment and identify risks and needs:
- Provide education about a prescribed diet
- Provide information about vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements
- Make food recommendations to help alleviate symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, bowel changes, taste and smell changes.
