Identifying patients who may benefit from home enteral nutrition support, managing the tube feeding regimen, and coordinating patient follow-up present unique challenges and opportunities for the health care team. The Geisinger Clinic of the Penn State Geisinger Health System, Danville, Pennsylvania, assembled a multidisciplinary team comprising a dietitian, a nurse, a social worker, and a physician to address the concerns of patients receiving home enteral nutrition. A coordinated effort among the patient, caregivers, and health care team is essential for the successful discharge and management of home enteral nutrition patients.
