Technological improvements allow for home hospitalization, which makes it necessary for nurses to be trained to know the latest advances and to know how best to treat their patients"

The increasing aging of the population forces certain patients to follow treatments outside hospital walls, something that has been favored by technological advances in healthcare. It is at this point that home hospitalization arises, along with its corresponding nursing, which aims to improve patient quality of life in cases of chronic diseases, those who find it difficult to travel to be treated in hospital centers. 

In these cases, nursing must focus on patient care as if they were at the hospital but in patients' immediate environment, the home where they reside, without compromising quality of care or the use of hospital-intensive resources. 

We live in an aging society, with exacerbated chronic problems that need outpatient care, so it is necessary for nurses to specialize in this field to advance their profession.

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

The content is presented in a rigorous way with the latest scientific evidence and clinical cases which help to increase our knowledge. This is with the aim of sharing experiences and new techniques that are already used by medical colleagues around the world.
