New website on home parenteral nutrition
MNI launched a brand-new website - www.home-nutritional-care.com - dedicated to nutritional care delivered at home, and in particular on home parenteral nutrition.
Home parenteral nutrition – e.g. intravenous feeding administered outside the hospital, either at home or in a nursing home – may be a valid option for improving quality of life of patients whose conditions require long-term parenteral nutrition.
The website provides information to patients and the general public about what home parenteral nutrition is, who can receive it and when, how it works, and what are the benefits and safety aspects. Q&As are easily accessible through a drop-down menu.
Visitors can use an interactive map to look for local support organisations to learn more, seek advice and share experiences with other patients.
