Nutrition and cancer: what is the information experience?

Dr Amy Mullee

In Ireland there is a shortage of dietitians, cancer patients need expert nutritional advice and treatment. The lack of reliable advice, together with a desire for information, can lead people with cancer to seek out information themselves from sources including television, books, and the internet. Many people with cancer arrive for treatments on a range of diets. Many diets are not proven to work and can often interfere with treatment.

The aim of Amy’s research is to look at all the dietary or nutritional information that people with cancer in Ireland access or receive from others and to find out what they need for nutritional care and support.

We will invite people who have or have had cancer to complete a survey online. The survey will ask some details about them, the nutrition care they received, the nutrition information they have read, and their needs in relation to nutrition, diet, and cancer.
