The Project

The goal is to conduct a global interprofessional educational assessment of the educational needs and professional practice gaps within individual healthcare professions and the interprofessional teams involved in recognizing, diagnosing, and managing patients with cancer cachexia.

Using a mixed methods approach, this needs assessment initiative involves a series of virtual meetings with healthcare professionals with experience in the field of cancer cachexia and an online survey aimed at assessing the real educational needs of the interprofessional team treating cancer patients with cachexia.
