The Korean Society of Health-System Pharmacists (KSHP) and Korean Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (KSPEN) jointly performed a nation-wide questionnaire survey on the current state of Nutrition Support Team (NST) activity from March to May of 2016. The aim of the survey was to suggest ways to develop NST as well as to improve the relationship between the KSHP and KSPEN. Compared to the results of the 2005 survey, some progress was made in the activity of NST over the last decade. Not only was the activity of NST settled, but quantitative and qualitative growth was also achieved by activating rounds and regular meeting. On the other hand, the ratio of hospitals providing home care services has decreased. Therefore, further effort is needed for their revitalization.
