The 2024 INS Standards: What’s in It for Home Care? [virtual]

The practice of home infusion therapy continues to grow with an expanding base of research to guide practice. Recognizing this, a new Standard, Home Infusion Therapy, was added to the 2024 Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. This new Standard provides guidance for safe transitioning of patients to home infusion and safe practices for a variety of home infusion therapies. This Standard also addresses patient education and ongoing monitoring. In this session, we will detail this new Standard as well as how to incorporate guidance from additional Standards with applicability to home infusion therapy.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize patient-related and organizational factors to be considered when planning for home infusion.
  • Examine environmental safety issues that potentially impact the plan for home care.
  • Evaluate benefits, issues, and risks associated with the various categories of infusion therapies that can be administered in the home.
  • Identify important aspects of patient assessment and ongoing monitoring.
  • Recognize the importance of patient/caregiver education and support as critical to safe home infusion therapy.
