Abstract

The number of colorectal cancer survivors in the UK is increasing. Healthier diets can improve prognosis for survivors, but research indicates that they are dissatisfied with the dietary advice they receive. This article details a literature review that explored colorectal cancer survivors’ perceptions of dietary advice. Thematic analysis of the data identified five main themes: dissatisfaction with dietary advice; motivating factors for making dietary changes; barriers to dietary changes; sources and formats of dietary information; and the impact of symptoms caused by treatment and dietary changes. The authors conclude that individualised dietary advice and nurse-facilitated peer support sessions could support person-centred holistic care for colorectal cancer survivors. Nurses may require additional training from dietitians and experienced nurse specialists to deliver this care.
