Home parenteral nutrition (HPN) allows the whole spectrum of patients to improve not only the quality, but also the length of life. However, the whole process of home parenteral nutrition is administratively and personally challenging. The basic problems are especially in lengthy and slow communication with the health insurance, practical training of a patient, as well as resolving potential arising complications. The aim of the article is to focus on the problem of home parenteral nutrition and bring it near to the specialists with the expectations of sending patients to the centres of home parenteral nutrition according to fulfilment of the submission criteria.
