G_CS_78 Administration of Low Molecular Weight Heparin by SHCW and AHPs

In community settings many of the individuals receiving Low Molecular Weight (LMW)

Heparin do not have any specific nursing need requiring the intervention of a Registered Nurse; consequently an additional visit to administer treatment is required. In order to effectively utilise staff resources and reduce the number of individuals accessing a patient’s home it is proposed that Senior Health Care Support Workers and Allied Health Professionals (AHP’s) are trained to administer this treatment as part of the delivery of planned care.
