Our own Kaitlyn Phillips from the Univeristy of Memphis is doing a survey that focuses on evaluating the general nutrition knowledge of pediatric oncology patients.

If you provide direct nutrition care to pediatric oncology patients, please follow the link below to help us validate a tool that was developed to measure nutrition knowledge in children.  There are 20 questions and should take 5-10 minutes.  The validated questionnaire will be used to assess the general nutrition knowledge of children undergoing cancer therapy and to develop timely nutrition intervention and education protocols.  We are requesting  your feedback regarding the content of the questionnaire and the specific questions regarding ages 9-18 years old.  Feel free to give comments on the wording of the questions with the focus being on helping us capture nutrition and late effects information (diminished bone density, heart disease/ hyperlipidemia, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, colon cancer) as well as the individual’s understanding of the role nutrition plays in disease progression.

  Please complete her quick survey.
