All patients with terminal illness generally experience a decline in appetite and concomitant weight loss. These nutritional issues can be very distressing to patients and families and of regulatory concern to facility staff. This presentation describes the appropriate management of anorexia, weight loss and nausea and vomiting in the terminally ill patient. The use of artificial nutrition and hydration at the end of life is discussed, along with the psychosocial, spiritual, and ethical issues involved in nutritional decision making.

 

Appropriate in all practice settings.
