A new edition of Dripline is out!

The August-October 2018 edition of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

As usual, this issue is packed with a mix of personal HPNer stories, PNDU activities and a medical perspective to add to our knowledge of HPN. We hear from two carers of little ones as well as a young adult; learn some simple hospital meals for carers to make themselves; how to brighten a hospital room for a long stay; learn the winners of the PNDU 2018 awards; discover how one member started her own business to fit in with her HPN situation; and find out how you can be a part of AuSPEN’s HPN Consumer Workshop, as well as PNDU’s 10th birthday celebrations in December; and more. I hope you enjoy the read.
