TEJADA DOMINGUEZ, F.J.  and  RUIZ DOMINGUEZ, M.R.. Educating and training the patient and family in home parenteral nutrition. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.22. ISSN 1695-6141.

The Home Parenteral Nutrition consists of the infusion of nutrients, through a vein, carried out at the address of the patient. Among its requirements, is that of being able to count on the aid, qualification and collaboration of the patients themselves as well as that of the family and/or caretaker. This work represents the program of education and training directed to all of them in order to make this type of support a safe and effective modality in terms of maintenance of the nutritional state and improvements in the quality of life. The content is supported by an exhaustive revision of the scientific Literature that includes studies, guides of clinical practice, manuals and other documents of consensus guaranteed by expert societies in nutrition. We conclude that these programs can for this reason alone guarantee a suitable parenteral nutritional treatment in the home, so favouring the independence and well-being of the patient and family and assuring a safe administration and avoiding entries and prolonged hospital stays.

Keywords : Home Parenteral Nutrition; Nutritional Artificial Support; Sanitary Education; Training Learning.
