ThriveRx Nutrition Advocate Team
About This Hero:
To help patients and caregivers understand and better manage the complex care required for those living on parenteral or enteral nutrition, the advocate team provides individual support and tools. The team manager authored two children’s books to explain central lines to young children and early readers. This small group of talented consumers and caregivers routinely create one page, simple tip sheets on familiar topics like how to advocate for yourself, organize your medical supplies, and travel with TPN. This team is unique to the infusion pharmacy industry and helps support the pharmacy with medication adherence, quality of life concerns, and patient-focused needs. The advocate team focuses on assisting patients in understanding their potential to live life on nutrition support.
