Teach Patients to Self-Inject Subcutaneous or IM Meds
Patients will need your help learning how to self-inject meds.
A recent example is subcutaneous depot medroxyprogesterone (Depo-subQ Provera 104). It can now be self-injected...as a way to improve contraceptive access.
But IM medroxyprogesterone (Depo-Provera) is still given by a healthcare provider...since it’s a deltoid or gluteal injection.
