Patient Education -What to Expect from Home Infusion Therapy
American Outcomes Management (AOM) offers IV therapy education and patient education resources to give patients and their families a better understanding of what to expect from our services. AOM strives to foster independence in the patient and caregiver in administering prescribed therapies and using specialized equipment. Patient education begins at the time the referral is received. The course of IV training and IV therapy education is based upon the patient's individual needs.
Achieving Your IV Therapy Education
Each patient receives a customized training packet with specific IV therapy educational resources. The AOM team's pharmacist and nurse work collaboratively to provide the patient with comprehensive information regarding medications, supplies and equipment. A Certificate of Education and Training is completed to document the IV therapy education and the patient/caregiver competency with all necessary skills required to provide safe care in the home. The nurse monitors compliance on each subsequent visit and reinforces the IV therapy education process.
Take advantage of AOM's IV therapy educational resources.
