Dietetics Tele-Consultation is now available at your convenience.
Cancer patients can consult our dietitian at the comfort of their own home, with an appointment made prior to the tele-consultation. Although tele-consultation has its own limitation as compared to a face-to-face consultation, this service provides an additional solution with convenience for follow-up patients and new patients.
After the appointment is confirmed, you will receive a link to connect with our qualified dietitian. The link will direct you to the video conference call where the tele-consultation takes place. The video conference call can be conducted easily via a smartphone or computer where there is access to the internet.
Price: RM 25.00 (MMCH Patient) | RM 30.00 (New Patient)
About Dietetics Tele-Consultation
What is Dietetics Tele-Consultation?
Dietetics Tele-Consultation uses the edge of the internet and smartphones to allow cancer patients to consult a dietitian without the need to be physically present.
Is Dietetics Tele-Consultation suitable for you?
Dietetics Tele-Consultation is suitable:
- For cancer patients who seek to understand the recommended diet for them before and after treatment (radiotherapy, chemotherapy, etc.), during their recovery phase and for long-term care.
- For caregivers who wish to learn ways to increase the cancer patient’s appetite and to plan daily meals which are individually catered for the patient.
It is vital for cancer patients to meet their requirements for calories, protein, and fluid in order to assist them with completing their planned treatment. The right diet will prevent treatment interruptions, ease side effects, and improve the overall quality of life.
