Training and counseling
As part of Alcura’s complete homecare services, we offer you training and counselling services, and ongoing support if you are taking medications for chronic (long-term) conditions. We work with trained nurses who are uniquely positioned to help you overcome any concerns around self-injection or home infusions.
Self-injection: building your confidence
During the first month, the nurses will personally show you how to safely self-inject your therapies using pre-filled syringes.
Following this early training, our nurses will help you stay on course with your therapy. They will assess your self-injection techniques when they visit, and telephone you directly each month to answer any questions and check on your continued treatment compliance. As part of this training, our nurses will also teach you about the effects of your prescribed medicines, including any adverse effects to be aware of.
Understanding your medications
In addition, you will receive patient education packs produced by Alcura, such as patient videos, leaflets or treatment guidelines, to help you learn more about self-administration of medicines. Our nurses will also give you treatment starter packs and patient information material about your medications, produced by relevant pharmaceutical companies.
