Pancreatic cancer: Seeing a dietitian

Dietitians work in all public hospitals and most private hospitals. There may be a dietitian connected to your cancer treatment centre.

The Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) can also help you locate an Accredited Practising Dietitian in your area, who specialises in cancer or has experience with particular clinical conditions.

If your doctor refers you to a dietitian you may be eligible for a Medicare rebate. Most private health insurers provide a rebate depending on your type and level of cover.

The DAA has information on the typical fee for private dietitian consultations.
