A new issue of Dripline is out!

The May-July 2020 issue of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

With this issue, we sadly farewell two precious members of PNDU, Lara and Aiden, who both lost their battle with their health issues. Aiden’s mum has written a tribute to him. In this issue we look at HPNers moving to a different part of the country; we read the update on AuSPEN’s HPN Model of Care Project; in Teen Talk we learn from James about his life on HPN; Professor Gil Hardy has updated and added to a series of articles that he wrote several years ago for Dripline, beginning with Parts 1 and 2 in this issue; and A Day in the Life of an HPNer deals with the need for structured life.

I hope you enjoy the read,

Dripline Editor
