ESPEN guidelines on nutrition in cancer patients published

November 10th, 2016

As survival and quality of life of patients with cancer dramatically improved over the last few years, the management of medical nutrition became critically important for these patients. The tolerance and safety of all modalities of anti-cancer treatment are indeed conditioned by the nutritional status. Hence, the clinicians involved in the care of these patients need a pragmatic review of the currently available evidence in the area of oncology/hematology more than in any other chronic condition. These evidence based guidelines were developed to translate current best evidence and expert opinion into recommendations for multi-disciplinary teams responsible for identification, prevention, and treatment of reversible elements of malnutrition in adult cancer patients.

ESGE / ESPEN Quality in Endoscopy: IBD & Nutrition Symposium

November 3rd, 2016

The IDB & Nutrition symposium is tailored for doctors, especially our young fellows and junior physicians, across the fields of gastroenterology / endoscopy, surgery and internal medicine. The symposium will cover topics including clinical nutrition in inflammatory bowel disease, advanced imaging techniques in IBD and the gut microbiome in IBD.

We would also like to encourage our nursing colleagues to attend the meeting. In the field of endoscopy, doctors and nurses work together as a very close team and our hands-on training partners, ESGENA, have brought to our attention just how relevant the meeting content is for their members.

Interaction, including the exchange of ideas, clinical experiences and knowledge between faculty and participants is a central element of our symposia. Quality in Endoscopy symposia demonstrate that the combination of highly communicative teaching with a strong, supportive and dedicated faculty is the key to success. Alongside senior speakers, presenters from the up and coming younger generation will contribute to innovative and lively sessions.

We encourage you to register for the symposium and look forward to welcoming you to Dublin!

New ESPEN guidelines on nutrition in cancer patients

September 27th, 2016

As survival and quality of life of patients with cancer dramatically improved over the last few years, the management of medical nutrition became critically important for these patients. The tolerance and safety of all modalities of anti-cancer treatment are indeed conditioned by the nutritional status. Hence, the clinicians involved in the care of these patients need a pragmatic review of the currently available evidence in the area of oncology/hematology more than in any other chronic condition. These evidence based ESPEN guidelines were developed to translate current best evidence and expert opinion into recommendations for multi-disciplinary teams responsible for identification, prevention, and treatment of reversible elements of malnutrition in adult cancer patients. The guidelines were commissioned and financially supported by ESPEN and by the European Partnership for Action Against Cancer (EPAAC), an EU level initiative.
