Learn all the techniques and specific ways of intervention in patient care at home with a program of high scientific and didactic value"

Care for patients who are hospitalized at home has certain particularities, since nurses lack the same tools available in hospitals, and also because each patient, depending on the pathology involved, must be treated differently.

It also brings other benefits, since patients are more comfortable at home, and hospital costs are saved by reducing the length of patients stays.

This program is focused on deepening the understanding of all aspects which make home hospitalization unique and different from other medical specialties in Nursing. It also demonstrates the weaknesses and future opportunities we have ahead of us, making the most of new educative technology available.
