Conclusions

PN offers a viable way to provide essential nutrients to individuals who are unable to use their gastrointestinal tracts effectively for a prolonged time period. Although this medical intervention is associated with significant risks, for many patients it can be a life-saving or life-prolonging therapy. Practitioners who manage patients who receive PN warrant specialized nutrition support training. PN management is most effective through a multi-disciplinary approach, utilizing the expertise of physicians, pharmacists, dietitians, nurses, case managers, and social workers.
