Abstract

To admit a client to a home infusion therapy program effectively and efficiently, all of the parties involved must take part in the planning process and decision making. The registered nurse and pharmacist are not the only players on the home healthcare team involved in planning for home infusion therapy, but their relationship is especially critical for a smooth transition to the home setting. Good communication between the nurse and pharmacist and a basic understanding of responsibilities are keys to successful coordination of care delivery. But communication can be challenging when the pharmacist and nurse do not work in the same physical location, which is often the case.
