A new edition of Dripline is here!

Wishing all our readers a very happy and healthy 2017!

The November-January 2017 edition of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

Sit back and relax as you read our latest edition, including patient comments about eating, exercise, and what they would wish for to improve their quality of life. Read about Mayana, a very young HPN member being cared for by her grandmother.
We find out about our 2016 PNDU Annual Award winners, and read about both a Sydney get-together, as well as PNDU’s annual social gathering held last year in Melbourne just before the AuSPEN ASM. There are articles on the latest research on blood thinning patches and on surface coatings on medical devices that might thwart infection. Another ‘What’s in Your Bag’ tells about the importance of glucose in our PN, and we learn why sugar is bad for intestines.

All this and more – enjoy!
