Description

CRP will contribute new evidence on the efficacy and effectiveness of nutritional and lifestyle support during cancer treatment in particular in LMICs, and on core nutritional information to be collected. This information will improve treatment outcomes, recurrence and survival of cancer patients.

•Data on diet related behaviour and physical activity of cancer patients

•Data on the efficacy and effectiveness of diet and behaviour related interventions on nutritional status, treatment outcomes, recurrence and survival to provide a firm base for the nutritional management of cancer in general, or specific cancers

•A minimum nutritional care toolbox for routine use to improve clinical practice as well as for more complex clinical situations, based on: history (appetite, diet, physical activity), anthropometry (body composition), physiology, physical function or fitness and metabolic fitness, and biochemistry (nutrient status)

•Peer reviewed publications, conference abstracts, RCM reports

Objectives

The overall objective is to generate evidence on how to improve survival in children with cancer in low middle income countries through understanding the interlinking relationships between cancer, body composition, energy expenditure, interventions and clinical outcomes in childhood cancer.

Specific objectives

To examine the effect of childhood cancer and treatment on body composition and energy expenditure.

To understand the link between body composition, energy expenditure and clinical outcomes in childhood cancer.

To determine accurate and accessible body composition and energy expenditure assessment techniques for childhood cancer. .

To determine intervention which improve body composition, energy expenditure and clinical outcomes in childhood cancer.
