Emergencies and management of adverse effects of medications at home

The Home Hospitalization Units (HaD) attend to patients who require hospital intensity treatment, which usually includes parenteral drugs and complex therapies.

The management of these patients includes, not only the evolutionary follow-up of the process that has required the intervention of the HaD (decompensated heart failure, a serious infection ...), but also the detection and treatment of complications related to the drugs we administer.

The correct diagnosis and treatment of these adverse effects at home is, in addition to an essential part of the activity of the doctors and nurses who care for these patients, a basic indicator of the quality of care in the HaD units. 

We have designed this course to provide tools to healthcare professionals, both doctors and nurses, for the detection and management of complications related to medication in the homes of patients.

The objective of the course is to improve the knowledge of health professionals, doctors and nurses who care for patients who receive complex home treatments, regarding the different adverse effects of the drugs we administer, their detection and treatment.

Specific objectives

  • Plan the monitoring of patients admitted to a HaD.
  • Know the pharmacological interactions and adverse effects of the main groups of drugs used in HaD.
  • Learn to manage material and medication in routine monitoring and emergencies at home.
  • Learn how to make decisions when faced with an interaction and / or adverse effect at home and the appropriate treatments.
