Please note that there is a full comprehensive ASHCROFT LOCAL template on SystmOne.  Please use it.  The timings are really crucial.

Shared care request comes into practice asking us to continue/initiate denosumab

At the Dr appt: use doctor’s page of template

  • Discussion with patient
  • Adds medication to other hospital mediation( to ensure injection does not get issued with rpt medication

  • State date +/- 10 for timing of next injection

 

Admin receives a scheduled task and rings patient

  1. books pt in for injection at exactly 6m +/-10 of last injection
  2. books appt for blood test at least 1 week before injection is due

***timing of this injection is imperative.  If after ringing the patient 3 times you have not had a reply please send the denosumab letter and send an urgent task to Pardip
