Home Infusion Therapy Overview Part 1
Home Infusion Therapy has been a well defined part of the U.S's integrated medical system since the late 70's/early 80's due to new technological advances and the need to reduce health care expenditures. Patients who receive this service often have better medical outcomes, improved patient & family quality of life, reduced risk of nosocomial (hospital acquired) infections and significantly reduced medical expenses. Pharmacists and nurses play a major role in making this service a success while providing critical feedback/support to the physician, patient and patient's family.
