Nutrition is an important aspect of caring for patients with life-threatening illness. Good nutrition support is essential, not only for meeting the body's physical requirements but also because of associated social, cultural and psychological benefits for patients. The author uses examples from cancer and motor neurone disease to illustrate the nutrition needs, legal and ethical issues and specific symptoms that affect dietary intake in patients receiving palliative care.
