ILARI, S.  and  SALAS, M.A.. Nutritional support and evaluation by enteral route: nurses’ knowledge level about adults in intensive therapy units in hospitals from the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2009, n.16. ISSN 1695-6141.

Since the beginning of the 70s, studies have been published showing the benefits of teams of nutritional support to implement the Enteral Nutrition (EC) in an efficient way in patients that need it. Additionally, health care is a very important aspect in the management and running of the health system and it has direct implications in the quality of patients care. For this reason, nursing training is a relevant factor for the execution of general care and particularly for Nutritional Support. For Nutritional Support to be efficient and safe knowledge about Nutritional Evaluation, medical indications, management of specific techniques, implementation, monitoring and possible complications of Enteral Nutrition is needed.
