A bit about PNDU

Our mission at PNDU is to support, research and inform consumers, carers and providers of parenteral nutrition for intestinal failure.

We are a group of Australian and New Zealand consumers, parents, care givers and professionals affected by intestinal failure requiring Intravenous (IV) nutritional support (parenteral nutrition).      

Please take a moment to become a member (at no cost) in order to enter the site and access the information we are collating on parenteral nutrition and other aspects of intestinal failure.

to our free e-newsletter Dripline which is published quarterly.  Click here for the latest edition of Dripline.

And if you are an Aussie or Kiwi consumer or carer and would like to take part in our private consumer/carer-only email forum and/or our new closed Facebook group, please contact us with a brief history in relation to parenteral nutrition.

Please Note:  This information is kept in strictest confidentiality,

"to continue our partnership and to co-work to fulfil our objectives to support patients and to educate those who need to understand life on line".
