Course Overview

Cost containment initiatives, changes in healthcare quality measurements and payment structures, and component shortages affect nurses and pharmacists caring for patients receiving parenteral nutrition. Because many multidisciplinary nutrition support teams have been disbanded as a way to reduce costs, and the use of PN is limited to select groups of patients, the RN has had to become an expert in administering PN. It is necessary to go beyond the five rights of medication administration to ensure evidence-based interventions and quality outcomes patients receiving PN.
