Search for the 'Injections' template using the search box provided or via the folder navigation pane. Select the template and click on OK to launch.

 

The template has been broken down by pages on the left-hand side to make it easy to navigate to the information you require. 

 

The All injections – PSD/PGD page allows the user to record in the first section the consent, advice given or procedure refused, not carried out or not indicated. Along with options to record administration of medication under PSD or PGD.
