Training opportunity for medical providers: Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Survivors

The American Cancer Society, with support from the Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has created a CME-accredited training simulation called Let’s Talk: Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Cancer Survivorship.

The simulation is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners.

It offers 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 provides personalized feedback on practice conversations so that healthcare professionals can assess their competency to lead similar conversations in real clinical interviews. 

It is CME-accredited and approved for .5 CME credits for physicians and physician assistants and .5 CEU credits for nurses and nurse practitioners.
