Nutritional Counseling

Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix offers nutritionists who are experts in cancer care because we recognize that being well nourished is an important part of recovery.

Being well-nourished means you can tolerate treatment better, causing fewer breaks in your treatment schedule. It also can help you recover faster and maintain a higher quality of life during and after your treatment.

Our board-certified dietitians are members of your overall care team who work with patient, families and caregivers to develop a plan tailored to your needs.

We can help hospitalized patients with:

  • Assessing your nutritional needs
  • Determining your nutritional goals
  • Developing practical strategies to help meet nutritional needs
  • Minimizing and coping with treatment side effects such as weight loss, dehydration, difficulty in swallowing and dry mouth. 
  • Educating patients and caregivers about food safety at home
  • Providing follow-up care (as needed) through your treatment
