This resource has been prepared to help you understand more about nutrition and dietary requirements during and after your cancer treatment. Your family, friends, and others close to you may also want to read it.

We hope this resource will provide helpful information on ways to manage common eating problems that may occur due to cancer or its treatment. It also includes information about support services which may be available to you.

We cannot give advice about the best diet for you. You need to discuss this with your doctors, nurses and dietician. However, we hope this information will answer some of your questions and help you think about other questions to ask your treatment team.

This information was developed with help from a range of health professionals who specialise in cancer treatment and supporting dietary choice, and also from people affected by cancer. It is based on a number of references including the National Health and Medical Research Council's Australian Dietary Guidelines.
