Evaluation of the use of intramuscular clozapine
MetadataShow full item record
Use of clozapine via the intramuscular route (IM) has recently started at the Hospital. It was felt important to review current use alongside the literature and guidance from elsewhere to inform content in the trust clozapine guideline and facilitate safe and effective use of this treatment strategy. There is little information regarding IM clozapine in the literature (McLean and Juckes, 2001; Kasinathan and Mastroianni, 2007). Some services have guidelines (South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, 2016; Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, 2016).
