Project Description

Oral liquid nutritional supplements (OLNS) are routinely given to residents of aged care facilities (RACFs) who have dementia, however best practice in relation to this has not yet been established. This systematic review investigated the prescription, administration and effectiveness of OLNS for this population.

The review aims to :

1) identify the factors associated with the prescription and administration of OLNS;

2) assess the effectiveness of administering oral liquid nutritional supplements;

3) identify resident responses to the administration of OLNS; and

4) identify how staff view and manage the administration of OLNS.
