    Abstract

    Patients with acute renal failure are at high risk for developing malnutrition. Provision of adequate nutrition support begins with an understanding of the metabolic alterations that occur due to the disease state and renal replacement therapies. Assessment of nutritional requirements and implementation of appropriate feeding modalities can lead to optimal nutritional status and positive patient outcomes. Building collaborative relationships with other health care professionals is crucial to overcoming the barriers that hinder implementation of appropriate nutritional management.
