A practical guide for lung cancer nutritional care

The British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN)

Malnutrition is a common occurrence in cancer patients because of factors such as reduced dietary intake and cancer cachexia. This can cause significant morbidity and mortality through impairment of the immune system, fatigue, poor response to chemotherapy, and greater chemotherapy-induced toxicity. Appropriate nutritional management can prevent the development of these morbidities, improve survival in patients, and reduce healthcare-related costs.

This Guidelines summary covers the assessment and management of malnutrition in lung cancer patients, and includes a nutritional care pathway.
