Abstract:

The trend in modern medicine is to transition care from the hospital to home or other nonacute settings as soon as possible. Increasingly, nutrition support professionals are being asked to help facilitate discharge and/or manage patients who require prolonged intravenous fluid and/or nutrition after having been stabilized during a hospitalization. This updated tutorial reviews many of the concepts and challenges that must be considered for successful care that helps to focus on the patients and their quality of life.
