Lifestyle Medicine for Cancer Prevention and Survivorship
This course will provide the knowledge and skills required to implement evidence-based lifestyle medicine strategies for cancer prevention and living well after a cancer diagnosis. Although aimed at practicing healthcare professionals from all disciplines, it also has relevance to the wider public. The content covers the six pillars of lifestyle medicine, namely healthy diets, physical activity, restorative sleep, healthy relationships, management of stress and avoidance of harmful substances, and provides actionable takeaways for personal and professional practice. The course aims to provide individuals and practitioners the confidence to disseminate this information amongst their patients, families and their communities.
Developed and facilitated by Dr Shireen Kassam, alongside colleagues alongside colleagues Dr Laura Freeman, Dr Aryan Tavakkoli, Dr Sheena Fraser, Dr Siobhan McCormack, Prof James Faulkner and Michelle Fedele, RD.
