NEW CME FOR PROVIDERS! Let’s Talk: Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer Survivorship
The American Cancer Society has developed a new CME-accredited training simulation for primary care providers. “Let’s Talk: Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer Survivorship” gives healthcare providers a safe learning environment in which to practice effective communication techniques for discussions with cancer survivors around the sensitive topics of healthy eating, physical activity, and body weight. The training uses evidence-based motivational interviewing techniques to help providers have effective conversations with their patients about healthy lifestyle choices. For more information see the Let's Talk Communication Toolkit and Training links announcement on the Cancer Survivorship Resources page of this website.
