Hospital at home structures aim to assure the transition between hospital and home, including by supporting a life project through to its last moments. Cood coordination between the different players and constant consideration of the patient and their family are necessary in order to ensure that the quality of care at home is equivalent to what provided in hospital. © 2014 Elsevier Masson SAS.

While home-based chemotherapy improves comfort and quality of life of patients, quality and safety conditions must be equivalent to hospital settings. In addition, organization is much more complex. At the hospital at home "Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris", prescribers are potentially spread across 21 health facilities. The administration of chemotherapy is performed by about 300 nurses at the patient's home in Paris and its suburbs. Centralized preparations of chemotherapy began in September 2009 by the pharmacy department of Georges-Pompidou European hospital, with a progressive increase of the activity. This article describes the quality insurance system established with this new organization to meet the specific challenges of home therapy: choice of eligible anticancer drugs, computerized information systems and networking with other heath facilities, secure transport conditions, traceability from the prescription to the administration, security of administration. This experience can offer an important support for other centres in their approach of quality insurance for home chemotherapy. ©John Libbey Eurotext. Source
