Nutritional support, including oral nutritional supplements, enteral tube feeding and parenteral nutrition, can be an important part of the management of any patient. Malnutrition is common and costly, clinically and financially, if left untreated.

This article discusses the evidence from systematic reviews and meta-analyses of the effectiveness of nutritional support.
