Parsons, E. et al. 2017. Oral nutritional supplements in a randomised trial are more effective than dietary advice at improving quality of life in malnourished care home residents

Oral nutritional supplements in a randomised trial are more effective than dietary advice at improving quality of life in malnourished care home residents.

Few trials have explored the effect of nutrition support on quality of life (QoL). This randomised controlled trial of 104 malnourished residential care residents indicates that oral nutritional supplements (ONS) can improve quality of life (QoL) and nutritional intake more effectively than dietary advice alone.
