Parenteral Nutrition (PN) is the provision of nutrition intravenously, providing a source of macro- (protein, carbohydrates and fats) and micro- (electrolytes, vitamins and trace elements) nutrients. PN may be administered in Hospitals or at Home (in patients requiring long-term treatment), and involves a wide multi-disciplinary team – including pharmacists, dietitians, nurses and clinicians – in the prescription and ongoing management of patients.

Enteral nutrition generally refers to any method of feeding that uses the gastrointestinal tract to deliver part or all of a patient's caloric requirements. It can include a normal oral diet, the use of liquid supplements or delivery of part or all of the daily requirements by use of a feeding tube.
