Registered Oncology Dietitian
At Halifax Health – Center for Oncology, we know a patient’s journey with cancer has multiple facets of treatment.
The Registered Oncology Dietitian at Halifax Health – Center for Oncology offers complete nutrition services to cancer patients. This helps patients cope with diet and appetite issues related to cancer and cancer treatments, and plays an integral role in our Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).
Our complimentary Registered Oncology Dietitian:
- Is a cancer nutritional professional that works with patients and their families, specifically those identified at risk for having nutritional challenges or special needs.
- Knows nutritional status can be adversely affected by the disease process, including the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its treatment.
- Works with our patients, families, caregivers, physicians and other members of the oncology multidisciplinary team to help maintain optimal nutritional status throughout the continuum of care (prevention, treatment, survivorship, palliative care and hospice).
Our Registered Oncology Dietitian is here to provide support so you never have to feel alone on your journey.
