Abstract

The decision to utilize parenteral nutrition in patients with advanced cancer is difficult. There are variable opinions in the literature. Those who routinely care for cancer patients often confront the challenges of discussing these interventions with patients and their families. We review results from previous randomized controlled trials, published guidelines, and recent work that describes the emotional challenges patients and families face as they make such decisions with their healthcare providers.
