Event description
A Macmillan funded patient, carer and health professional conference to look at ways to improve nutrition during cancer treatment

About this Event

The Macmillan Nutrition Innovation in Cancer Project (NiiCproject) team at Nottingham University Hospitals invites you to attend an exciting day of learning.

The NiiCproject is a two year service improvement project funded by Macmillan to explore ways to build better nutritional care into cancer services.

The conference has been designed to bring together patients, carers, health professionals and support services i.e. charities to share findings from the work.

The programme also includes topics that people experiencing cancer have said are important to them. Including ways that we can help improve communication about nutrition during cancer treatment.

Hot lunch and refreshments will provided free of charge, with a selection of three meals including vegetarian option. Special dietary requirements will be catered for.

Free parking is available. The tram stops outside the venue and is easily accessed by buses.

The programme includes:

  • How patients are supported to get use and understand nutrition information during cancer treatment
  • How technology can improve nutrition and cancer care
  • Improving nutrition in chemotherapy and early nutrition screening
  • Nutrition before oncology surgery

As well as an afternoon of workshops, giving practical hints and tips to help build on learning from the morning:

  • Understanding portion sizes and food labels
  • Tips to help eating with taste changes
  • Tips to help support good nutrition during cancer treatment
  • How best to communicate of nutrition information (nutrition health literacy) - helping patients to ask the right questions and professionals communicate information in the right way.
  • Tips and hints to help think how technology may help to improve nutrition during cancer
  • To understand what patient and public involvement is and how it can help develop better ideas.

Sharing ideas

We have created a space for attendees to share their own work in the area of nutrition and cancer to share and get feedback from other people attending the day. Maybe find people with an interest in the same area, patients and carers may give you tips on how your project would affect them or some advice. No abstract submission needed, just an opportunity to share your work and get some confidence and advice.
