MidCentral DHB Dietitian

Cancer Network Group Service


Dietitians are health professionals who help individuals, groups and communities improve their health and lifestyle through optimal nutrition.

In the oncology setting, this may range from offering advice on healthy eating, weight maintenance, nausea, poor appetite, sore mouth and swallowing difficulties, taste changes, constipation, diarrhoea, management of PEG/PEJ tubes and nutritional drink supplements.

Palmerston North Hospital has dietitians working in both medical oncology and radiation oncology.
