Infusion therapy is a growing need in the home care setting, and clinicians need to be not only competent with the hands-on skills involved but also able to provide education and troubleshooting to support patients in the home. Improvements in technology, earlier discharge of sicker people, and the expanding range of skills that can be performed in the home have led to the expansion of infusion therapy in this setting. Preparing clinicians to practice infusion therapy based on standards of practice will provide quality outcomes. This article will describe how an infusion therapy clinical competency program was developed and implemented for the home care setting.
