Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) Administration Record
Public Health England has highlighted the significantly higher rates of smoking among people with serious mental illness, which is 40.5% compared with 16.9% for the general adult population (2016). Hospitals are being encouraged to go ‘smoke free’, and this is resulting in the need for inpatients to stop smoking. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) medicines consist of a range of products such as patches, lozenges, sprays, and chewing gum which all contain nicotine. These can be used to mitigate the withdrawal symptoms of smoking cessation and help patients to stop smoking.
Ashtons have designed a bespoke prescription chart for recording the administration of NRT medicines. This is because it can be difficult to record the administration of NRT products as they are frequently used on a PRN (when required) basis and can quickly fill up a traditional prescription chart.
The Ashtons NRT Chart also provides a quick reference summary of NRT products on the reverse for easy reference. You can order Nicotine Replacement Therapy Administration Records by calling our Customer Service Team on 0345 222 3550 or emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
