Homecare around the World

Interested to know what HPN is like in other countries?  This presentation was given by 3 HPNers at a 2015 PNDU social gathering, giving HPNer observations about living with HPN and the services received from the PN manufacturers and delivery/support services in  4 countries - Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and USA.

Let's go travelling!

PNDU's updated Travel Information Booklet has lots of helpful information for Aussie and Kiwi HPNers, carers and hospitals on how to plan and organise safe travel with HPN.  

Go to our Travel page to find out more, download a soft copy of the Booklet, or email us for a hard copy.

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, carers and professionals affected by Intestinal Failure requiring Intravenous (IV) nutritional support (Home Parenteral Nutrition or HPN). 

Please take a moment to become a member in order to enter the site and receive 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 HPNer or carer and would like to take part in our private consumer/carer-only email forum and/or our closed Facebook group, please contact us with a brief history in relation to your Home Parenteral Nutrition.

Please Note:  This information is kept in strictest confidentiality.
