Research shows that the majority of patients with cancer suffer from nutritional deficits. Up to 84% of patients with certain cancer types experience some form of weight loss and/or malnutrition during their cancer treatment1. The COPES™ program provides access to live, one-on-one nutrition counseling appointments, support groups, and classes tailored especially for the needs of patients with cancer, at any time—day or night. This resource also includes an on-demand media library featuring recipes and meal plans that may be filtered by symptom, as well as lifestyle modification and fitness classes. The COPES™ program is available exclusively through healthcare providers.
“Our COPES™ platform provides patients with on-demand nutrition and wellness support after leaving the clinic and at every stage of their cancer journey,” stated Dr. Mary Christ, Global Medical Leader of the e-Health Incubator at Nestlé Health Science. “We are excited to launch this collaboration and bring forward our innovative solution which addresses key needs of oncology patients.”
“Working with the doctors who treat patients with cancer and complementing their care with around-the-clock nutrition, lifestyle and fitness support is a priority for Virtual Health Partners,” said Jillian Cohen, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of VHP. “We have specifically designed the COPES™ program to help oncology patients meet their unique nutritional needs, while also being mindful of any side effects and nutritional challenges that they may be experiencing.”
