At the centre, nutritional care for patients is ensured by the Mobile Food and Nutrition Team, comprised of doctors and dieticians. The team’s missions include prevention, screening and dietary care and counselling. Particular attention is paid to undernutrition, which leads to:

  • Decreased immunity and increased risk of infection,
  • Modified response and tolerance to cancer treatment, with a negative impact on disease prognosis,
  • Emotional impact, that can lead to depression,
  • Physical weakening, with an increased risk of falls and dependency,
  • Impaired wound healing and cell repair.

The Mobile Food and Nutrition Team looks after:

  • Undernourished patients or patients at risk of undernutrition
  • Care and monitoring of patients under artificial feeding: enteral feeding (through a feeding tube ) and parenteral feeding (intravenous)
  • Patients with localised breast cancer during group information sessions on nutritional balance.

Healthcare offer

The Mobile Food and Nutrition Team proposes:

  • Medical consultations on diet and nutrition, by medical prescription or nurse prescription, or upon the patient’s request,
  • Group information sessions on nutritional balance for patients with localised breast cancer.
