Learn to treat infections outside the hospital environment with the most up-to-date practice and the latest intervention techniques"

Current demographic change, coupled with a rising aging population, calls for an extreme rethinking of healthcare to focus more on patient care. This change is taking place thanks to home hospitalization, which allows patients to be cared for in their homes, and which is beneficial for both parties, since patients can be accompanied by their relatives at all times, and this decongests hospital facilities and reduces health care costs as patient stays become shorter. 

Both in the case of the elderly, of whom around 70% of Spaniards are estimated to suffer from at least one chronic disease, and the case of cancer patients, for example, who in some cases may receive treatment at home, it should be taken into account that they can become an easy target for microorganisms, as they have a weakened immune system. That is why they may be more prone to infections than other patients.

All this makes it extremely important for nurses to constantly update their knowledge to keep pace with the latest developments in infection treatment and to provide their patients with the most accurate therapies in each case. 

This program is designed to delve deeper into all the aspects that make home hospitalization unique and different from the rest of medical and nursing specialties, especially focusing on the study of the main infections that affect patients in home hospitalization.
