Dear authors. Congratulations to date on this fantastic piece of work. I think the new format is very user friendly and easy to read. The evidence based statement recommendations on this page will be very useful in practice, especially with the grades of evidence. Thank you.

Kind regards Belinda Morey Senior Dietitian Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital

a quick pass through the recommendations does not seem to comment on adequate analgesia to allow adequate oral intake.

please inform the writing committee that the preferred word is "regimen" not "regimes".

• This is included in Q26 re patient adherence to dietary advice and the role of the MDT to assist in addressing symptoms. Examples have been added to make this clearer. • Regimes will be changed to regimens
