New Evidence Update on nutrition support in adults from NICE

New Evidence Update on nutrition support in adults from NICE

We are pleased to inform you an Evidence Update on ‘Nutrition support in adults: oral nutrition support, enteral tube feeding and parenteral nutrition’ has been published.

NICE Evidence Updates help to reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence, and keep health and social care professionals up-to-date with new research. While Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance and do not provide formal recommendations, they do highlight new evidence thathealth and social care professionals may wish to consider alongside current guidance.

The new Evidence Update focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline Clinical Guideline 32 ‘Nutrition support in adults: oral nutrition support, enteral tube feeding and parenteral nutrition’ (February 2006).

An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of topic experts, reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.

Your help in disseminating the Evidence Update to your members would be much appreciated.

 

We would also welcome your feedback on the Evidence Update, what you like about them and how you think they could be improved. You can send your comments through tocontactus@evidence.nhs.uk.

 

 

Thank you in advance for your support.

 

Kind regards,
