Delighted to present this work at the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Society of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing International Conference and Exhibition, 8-9 September 2016, Cardiff, Wales. Headline? At present, the evidence base does not support the use of nutritional supplementation in enhanced recovery after surgery pathways for hip/knee replacement.

I’d be delighted to hear from anyone involved with any enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) pathway, particularly in orthopaedics, who has views on this, particularly those who have any practice and/or research experience related to the role of nutrition in ERAS pathways.
