As the prevalence of obesity increases in the U.S. population and potentially complicates all aspects of cancer treatment and survival, many cancer care providers struggle with addressing the topics of weight loss and weight management with their patients. Obesity and Cancer: A Guide for Oncology Providers is a tool for oncology professionals developed by a multidisciplinary group of cancer, nutrition, and exercise science experts. This guide will help oncology providers integrate strategies for weight loss into their practices by offering practical tips and implementation strategies for weight assessment and weight loss, as well as information about how to be reimbursed for these services.

To complement the provider guide, this bundle also includes Managing Your Weight After a Cancer Diagnosis: A Guide for Patient and Families. This booklet provides clear, practical information especially for patients and their caregivers about different weight loss methods, common challenges to losing and maintaining one's weight, a discussion of the emotional challenges that accompany making lifestyle changes, and tips for talking with the health care team about weight.

With these booklets, both patients and oncology providers will have the practical tools they need to work together to help their patients find a healthy weight. (1 QTY = 10 provider + 115 patient booklets)
