We help prepare your patients to self-administer NATPARA
How we can help your patients get started
All patients prescribed NATPARA are provided injection training by a Registered Nurse through the NATPARA Nurse Educator team. A Patient Support Manager works with the Nurse Educator team to assign each patient a specially trained NATPARA Nurse Educator. The Nurse Educator will contact the patient within 2 business days of receiving his/her NATPARA shipment to schedule up to 4 sessions of complimentary training in the patient's home, including:
- Delivering the injection device and demonstrating how to assemble it
- Walking through the reconstitution and administration process for the first 3 cartridges (Days 1, 15, and 29 of treatment)
- Calling the patient after each training to check in and answer any questions
- Providing materials to help patients take an active role in their treatment
When patients are mixing the cartridge alone for the first time, there will be a Nurse Educator on the phone
