The Home Artificial Nutrition (HAN), both enteral or parenteral, is rising rapidly in children and adults. It is the unique alternative to hospitalization for patients that cannot be fed orally allowing their reintegration in the family and social life. Achieving the HAN standards of care helps reducing costs, complications rate, prolonging survival and improving the quality of life.
