“Many patients admitted to hospital or in receipt of health care in the other settings, including their own homes, will become recipients of one or more infusion therapies at some stage. Total parenteral nutrition (TPN), cancer chemotherapy and other infusion therapies are increasingly delivered in community settings, reflecting the changing approach to care delivery/commissioning and patient choice. These initiatives, alongside the development of outpatient and home delivered parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OHPAT), has led to the need for greater flexibility to meet patients, clinical and lifestyle needs.” RCN
