Manual Is Valuable Resource
The American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.) has done a great service in gathering materials from dozens of organizations and individuals recognized as leaders in their fields and publishing them in The A.S.P.E.N. Nutrition Support Patient Education Manual. The manual contains hundreds of documents (including Oley’s complication charts) focused on homePEN and makes them available as handouts. To quote the preface, “The purpose of this manual is to provide clinicians with a compilation of some of the best patient education tools, all conveniently located in one place.”
The book is divided into eight parts, a listing of which will give you an idea of its scope: parenteral nutrition; enteral nutrition; surgical procedures; medical conditions; pediatrics; Spanish-language materials; patient education resources; and clinical resources. This manual will be a welcome addition to many libraries.
