Abstract: Nutrition is a basic human requirement with both physiological and psychosocial dimensions that affect wellbeing. In times of illness ensuring adequate nutrition is particularly important because of the central part it plays in healing and recovery. This article explores the premise that current nutritional care in nursing practice is often inadequate with the result that patients’ nutritional requirements are not met. It investigates the causative factors of poor nutritional care in nursing practice, the implications of such practice for both the patient and the professional, and proposes a number of recommendations for future change.
