Obesity and cancer – New resource from Cancer Research UK

Obesity and cancer – New resource from Cancer Research UK

October 31, 2018

Cancer Research UK has published the latest edition of their pharmacy Cancer Insight resource, which focuses on obesity.

Obesity is the biggest preventable cause of cancer after smoking and around 22,800 cases of cancer in the UK are caused by excess body weight every year.

The resource contains answers to common patient questions, practical tips on how to discuss weight management with patients who are overweight or obese and a campaign poster.

Free copies of the resource can be ordered and/or downloaded from the Cancer Research UK website. Pharmacists and pharmacy staff can also sign up to receive future copies of Cancer Insight on the Cancer Research UK website.

Healthy Living Pharmacy teams may wish to host a health awareness event/campaign on obesity and/or cancer as part of their ongoing health promotion activities. More information on hosting a health awareness event/campaign relating to those topics can be found on the PSNC health promotion ideas page.
