Dietitians can help and advise patients who may need extra nutritional support before, during and after treatment for a sarcoma. Dietitians are HCPC (Health Care Professionals Council) registered and aim to support with translating complex nutritional information into practical advice to treat medical conditions and facilitate lifestyle choices. They provide a holistic approach to patient care, helping to manage complex needs such as allergies or support using artificial nutrition.
Dietitians can provide pre-operative nutritional assessments, reports and treatment plans for adult and paediatric patients who are identified as having pre-existing nutritional concerns.
Patients undergoing treatment for a head and neck sarcoma, or sarcoma of the abdomen may see a specialist dietitian as part of their treatment.
