Brought to you by the American Cancer Society, this Continuing Medical Education (CME) event developed in partnership with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) will provide information on a new resource for health professionals to practice effective communication techniques for discussing sensitive topics about healthy eating, physical activity and body weight with cancer survivors.
Excess body weight is a risk to cancer survivors, and physical activity and a healthy diet are important for their long-term health and well-being. Health care providers can be key motivators in giving patients the extra support they need to achieve their healthy lifestyle goals, however, talking with survivors about these sensitive topics can be challenging.
The training uses evidence-based motivational interviewing techniques to help providers have effective conversations with their patients about healthy lifestyle choices.
Please join us to learn more about this valuable resource from the American Cancer Society. The webinar will include:
- Information on the connection between nutrition, activity, body weight, and health outcomes in cancer survivors
- A demonstration of the training simulation and how to access it
- Roll-out of a new communication toolkit with turn-key messages and promotional language that ACS staff and partner organizations can use to promote and disseminate the new training simulation
