Abstract

Purpose: To assist the pharmacist engaged in nutrition support therapy in staying current with pertinent literature. Methods: Several clinical pharmacists engaged in nutrition support therapy compiled a list of articles published in 2016 considered important to their clinical practice. The citation list was compiled into a single spreadsheet where the author participants were asked to assess whether the paper was considered important to nutrition support pharmacy practice. A culled list of publications was then identified whereby the majority of author participants (at least 5 out of 8) considered the paper to be important. Guideline and consensus papers from professional organizations, important to practice but not scored, were also included. Results: A total of 103 articles were identified; 10 from the primary literature were voted by the group to be of high importance. An additional 11 organizational guidelines, position, recommendation, or consensus papers were also identified. The top-ranked articles from the primary literature were reviewed. Conclusion: It is recommended that pharmacists, engaged in nutrition support therapy, be familiar with the majority of these articles as it pertains to their practice.
