The National Pharmacy Association has produced a series of tables to help pharmacists and staff to select the correct insulin when dispensing against generic prescriptions
The four tables cover the brands and types of insulin available for generic drugs most commonly found: rapid-acting insulin, intermediate-acting insulin, long-acting insulin and mixed insulin preparations.
The identification checker recommends that pharmacy staff should find out which devices patients are familiar with using before dispensing.
