Cancer Council Victoria has developed an electronic resource guide for supporting dietitians who treat oncology patients. The guide is a comprehensive collation of pre-existing evidence based materials that includes resources for dietitians, patient education materials, support services and programs and details on how to find a community or private practice dietitian in Australia. It is accessible through the Cancer Council Victoria website http://www.cancervic.org.au/downloads/CISS/Resource-Guide-for-Dietitians.pdf

 

Although originally informed by and intended for the views of Private Practice and Community Dietitians who treat oncology patients infrequently, this resource has also been widely used by nursing teams, student dietitians and dietitians working in acute settings.
