[en] Febrile neutropenia requires adequate antibiotic treatment. A subgroup of patients are only at low risk for complications and could be treated at home/as outpatients (OHPAT) after a short initial admission for work up. This position paper by a Belgian panel of experts presents criteria defining low-risk in febrile neutropenia, gives an overview of the existing experience and examines the present obstacles to a more widespread use of OHPAT in this country.
