Consensus Recommendations

These documents answer questions for which the level of evidence in the literature did not support any GRADE-level recommendations. These documents address questions about a nutrition practice topic using weaker supporting literature and expert opinion and consensus recommendations as well as identify areas for future research. These recommendations are not clinical guidelines as defined by ASPEN The need to deliver practice information to clinicians, even when it is of a consensus nature from practice experts, remains an important role of ASPEN.
