5 Ways Self-Infusion Gives Patients Their Independence Back

averorx circle

When patients find themselves faced with a chronic illness diagnosis, they often have a feeling of losing control. Their diagnosis is something that happened to them, and while they can choose a course of treatment, there’s a lot that’s suddenly out of their hands. When a condition requires infusion therapy, that means taking treatments that are anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours at a time. This can greatly interfere with anyone’s plans. Fortunately, for many conditions, patients have the option of self-infusion, which can give them back some of their independence. 

Training for self-infusion 

Infusion therapy requires several steps, and trying to learn the steps on your own can be daunting. However, specialty infusion pharmacies like AvevoRx can send experienced infusion nurses to train patients in how to self-infuse. This helps the patient feel empowered to do their own infusions so they don’t have to rely on care providers coming by to provide the therapy. 

Reduced risk of exposure

Patients who self-infuse have reduced risk from exposure to other illnesses. This can help them stay more independent, as they won’t find themselves dealing with temporary sickness in addition to their chronic conditions. For someone with a compromised immune system, a contagious illness that’s minor to most can be devastating. 

Option to stay at home

Along with not having to rely on or be exposed to anyone else, self-infusion gives patients the option to stay at home. This means minimal disruption to their daily lives, as they can choose to give themselves infusion therapy on their own schedules. They don’t have to plan around a nurse’s schedule or around hospital visits. Not having to go anywhere for care means not having to rely on anyone else. 

No transportation required

Another way self-infusion allows patients to be more independent is that there’s no transportation required. For patients with chronic conditions, getting around can be a challenge. They may not be able to drive themselves around, or even if they can, it may be more of a process than they want to deal with on a regular basis. Self-infusion allows patients to receive care without having to rely on others for transportation or infusion therapy. 

Empowerment and autonomy

Having a chronic illness more often than not means relying on others to some degree. Being trained for self infusion gives patients one area of their lives where they can be fully independent. While it may seem small in the grand scheme of things, this level of independence can be freeing for some patients. When life seems like it’s beyond their control, this is one area where they can be self-sufficient.
