A new issue of Dripline is out!

The February-April 2019 issue of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

I hope you enjoy reading and learning about life on HPN from the people who live with it daily. In this issue we see members’ HPNer children setting off for school for the first time – what a milestone! – and celebrating their birthday; We read some tips from Jodie on coping with life on HPN and – Emily, an HPNer all her life, addresses the need for Patient Centred Care; we read the story of an American woman who has been on HPN for 50 years; PNDU has been busy at a NIFS Conference in Auckland, as well as being represented at an Australian Parliament House meeting; Daniel encourages us to stay positive, and 2 of our members discover the gross build-up of fluff, hair and dust in our drip-stand wheels.
