Pediatric Home Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN)
The Pediatric Home TPN Service is a family-centered, child-focused and trans-disciplinary service that was introduced at HMC to facilitate the discharge of children who rely on Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) due to intestinal failure. The service provides training to care givers to do the TPN connection and care at home. This provides a better quality of life for parents and children, enabling them to get back into a normal family environment and reducing the amount of times they need to visit the hospital.
