Clinical Nutrition at Home

When critically or chronically ill patients are not able to receive a sufficient amount of nutrition from regular food due to medical conditions, clinical nutrition (or artificial nutrition respectively) provides an essential alternative. In specific cases, it can not only be supplied in the hospital, but also as an extra-hospital therapy through home artificial nutrition.

Home artificial nutrition means that patients can be discharged from the hospital and continue their nutrition therapy in the comfort of their own home. In order to further raise awareness for home artificial nutrition and its benefits, Fresenius Kabi supports the annual World Home Artificial Nutrition Day. Find out more about this special day and home artificial nutrition in a dedicated video or read the inspiring patient stories below.
