Dripline Issue 42 is out!

The November-January 2023 issue of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

This issue has a real mix of HPNers’ personal stories – read about a Tassie get together; about Susan and Aly’s battle with vomiting and its effect on their teeth; about travelling, both as an HPNer and as a carer of an HPN-dependent 4 year old – as well as events that PNDU has been a part of: the recent AuSPEN scientific conference where PNDU exhibits to raise awareness with clinicians who might have patients who would benefit from a support group; the AuSPEN-run HPN Consumer conference; the HPNer social gathering, the first in 3 years! There is also a medical aspect with information about what happens if you get a split in your line. The most exciting bit for many of our readers will be the announcement of two upcoming social gatherings – one in Sydney and one in Auckland, so make a note in your diary/phone.

Happy reading,

Dripline Editor
