Head and Neck Cancer Adherence to Dietary Recommendations using Theory-Based Tools: Future Research Directions

Head and Neck Cancer Adherence to Dietary Recommendations using Theory-Based Tools: Future Research Directions

The possibility of applying social cognitive theory (SCT) as a potential framework in improving head and neck cancer (HNCa) patient adherence to dietary interventions as reported by Rogers et al. is very interesting. The very high internal reliability of the SCT scales related to diet adherence was impressive.This is the first study to examine predictors or correlates of diet adherence in HNCa patients based on a behavioral change theory. Further, this study supports the need and legitimacy of the use of SCT in assessing dietary adherence to recommendations by HNCa patients.
