Conference Description:

Cancer is no longer a terminal diagnosis. Increasing numbers of people are surviving but with ever more chronic conditions they need sound nutritional advice. However, the scientific evidence to support this is sparse. This conference will explore the role of nutrition at multiple points in the cancer pathway.

Whilst the evidence base for cancer prevention is growing and consolidating there is a growing need to:

Understand the role of nutrition in chemotherapy (as well as the impact of therapy on nutrition and appetite)
Provide effective strategies for nutritional support of end-stage care
Understand the potentially distinct dietary strategies for prevention of cancer recurrence
Develop the management of the co-morbidities associated with cancer survivorship

The meeting will address the new challenges stemming from the improved prognoses following treatment for cancer. It will cover the mechanistic, human and public health implications, and is poised to draw together international expertise at a timely point in the evolution of development of cancer management and survivorship strategies.
