Cancer survivors should receive information about nutrition and lifestyle to help them recover and to potentially reduce the risk of the same cancer recurring or a new one developing. Frontline nursing staff are in a prime position to deliver information and advice to support cancer survivors. Our position paper addresses this issue (Murphy and Girot, 2013). It examines current guidelines and the evidence for the provision of diet and lifestyle advice to support people who have survived cancer, and to help them integrate back into normal life, improve their quality of life and potentially increase their chances of long-term survival. It discusses the importance of interprofessional working for nurses and the need for sound knowledge and education for those offering dietary advice.
