Head and neck cancer (HNC) is the seventh highest cause of cancer mortality worldwide. Upwards of 50% of those affected experience malnutrition and this is associated with reduced survival. Evidence-based guidelines (EBGs) provide recommendations to help prevent and manage malnutrition. However, it is unclear how well these are implemented in practice. Therefore, the aim of this thesis was to explore the implementation of nutritional EBGs for individuals with HNC.
