Abstract

Parenteral nutrition (PN) is commonly used in pediatric institutions in patients who either cannot be fed enterally or are unable to tolerate sufficient enteral calories to provide their nutrition requirements. Many pediatric patients, particularly those with short bowel syndrome or intestinal failure, will eventually require home PN (HPN) therapy. Although discharge to HPN is complex and can be associated with both immediate and long-term complications, it can be successfully achieved through collaboration between healthcare providers within the institution and the home care company and HPN education of the patient and caregivers. This review describes the processes that clinicians and institutions should consider when preparing for HPN discharge and serves as a guide for the effective transition to HPN in pediatric patients.
