Course Description

The Certificate Course in Cancer Nutrition is a specialized course designed to equip healthcare professionals, including doctors and nutritionists, with the knowledge and skills necessary to address the complex nutritional challenges faced by cancer patients.

In India, the incidence of cancer is alarmingly high, with approximately 1.4 million cases reported in 2018. Sadly, cancer accounts for 8.3% of all deaths in the country. However, advancements in medical science have led to early detection and effective treatment options for many types of cancer. Chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are the mainstays of cancer treatment.

These treatments can cause complications such as mucositis, esophagitis, gastritis, and enteritis, resulting in symptoms like nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and malabsorption. Maintaining adequate nutrition becomes a major challenge for cancer patients undergoing treatment. Studies have shown that malnutrition affects a significant percentage of cancer patients, ranging from 30% to 85% across different populations.

To address the challenges associated with evaluating and maintaining the nutritional status of cancer patients, we offer this comprehensive course focused on cancer nutrition. In this course, you will get an overview of how cancer and oncological therapies impact nutritional status. It also covers the principles of nutrition therapy for various types of cancer. You can complete the course through 6 hours of online learning content over a 12-week period.

This course is beneficial for healthcare professionals who want to enhance their knowledge of nutrition management in cancer.
