Status: ESPEN Special Interest Group
Field of interest: Home Artificial Nutrition (enteral and parenteral) and Chronic Intestinal Failure
To perform clinical and epidemiological studies in the field of HAN and of CIF.
To provide guidelines for HAN and for CIF.
To participate in the education of professionals with an interest in HAN and CIF.
Composition of the group:
• a maximum of 10 members, from National PEN Societies participating to the ESPEN Council
• the group is multidisciplinary, members are selected among pharmacists, nurses, dieticians and doctors
Composition at large:
• any ESPEN member who proposes a study, after approval of the protocol by the group, became part of the group until the end of the study
Presentation of the works of HAN & CIF:
The coordinator of the study is normally the first author of the publication.
Those who contributed to the study are thanked in the "acknowledgements" section.
Papers are submitted to the ESPEN meetings and Clinical Nutrition or other relevant journals.
Meetings of the HAN & CIF group:
The group convenes for two meetings every year. The winter meeting is held during a week-end in January or February in a city of one of the members.
The second meeting takes place during the ESPEN meeting in August or September.
An open meeting is organized when appropriate during the ESPEN congress in order to give delegates the opportunity to learn about the activities of the group. The information on the web site is adjusted at half-year intervals or when appropriate.
Renewal of the group:
Members of the group must be replaced continuously in order to assure the continuity of the group. Duration of the membership is normally 3-4 years.
Proposition of new members will be based on common sense in order to maintain the multinational and multidisciplinary composition of the group.
Members must fulfill the following criteria:
ESPEN provides financial support. The budget has to be accepted by ESPEN Central. All expenses must be clearly defined (meetings, secretariat, mailing etc.).
Members of HAN & CIF group are encouraged to generate financial support from pharmaceuticals companies or other societies. The ESPEN treasurer will control the budget.
Containing contributions from leading international experts and under the auspices of the ESPEN HAN Group, this book explores the life-saving treatment of home parenteral nutrition. It covers the complete scenario of home parenteral nutrition (HPN), from its prevalence in different continents to clinical indications and the practical aspects of its management. Topics covered inlcude the growing use of HPN, scientific and practical issues associated with HPN in adults and the pediatric population, indications and outcomes in various diseases, complications, nutrient requirements, preparation and administration of the admixtures, monitoring of patients, medical and surgical alternatives, ethics and legislation, and quality of life.

ESPEN LLL-course on Home Parenteral Nutrition in Adults
The group actively contributes to the ESPEN LLL program by delivering the course on HPN in adults.
The group has been awarded with the “ESPEN RESEARCH NETWORK GRANT” 2009 for the project: “An international study of the quality of life of adult patients treated with home parenteral nutrition (HPN)”, presented by Janet Baxter.
