I'd say on the whole yes. We have had a few teething problems, but to be fair, they have mainly been surrounding the surgeries and the pharmacies ordering in the product in time. We found the Xgeva rep very helpful in setting the service up.
Patients like it, with the exception of one elderly lady who lives in a residential home who likes to come through to us for a change of scenery and a day out. So she point blankly refuses to have her GP do it!
Thanks Lynn , we are working towards that too it was more a policy re self administration also . are your Gps receptive to your shared care ?
We have a shared care agreement with the local GP's. We initiate the treatment here in the hospital and when they are established they then have their injections in the community with, usually the practice nurses.
Hello everyone . At Bournemouth we are looking at trying to get some of the Denosumabs into the community to free up space in the chemo bay and also to limit the amount of times these ladies are coming up to the acute hospital . Has anyone got any experience of this please and has anyone got a policy to share ?
Thanks in advance
