Pulmonary drug delivery is an effective route of pharmaceutical administration but research has shown that a large majority of patients fail to use their devices properly, training devices can help address this problem. Joe Reynolds looks at the design challenges that need to be addressed as well as some of the latest features that can be incorporated to develop optimal training devices for patients.
Using Noble’s recent partnership with BD to develop trainers for BD’s UltraSafe™ needle safety technology as an example, Joe Reynolds discusses the importance of training devices for the successful onboarding of patients beginning to use self-injected therapeutics, and how Noble’s training devices are designed to be faithful to the look and feel of the real product.
New delivery systems for larger volume and more complex drugs, such as wearable injectors, are revolutionising patient treatment. However, research has shown that patients need to receive quality training and onboarding to ensure they use the devices properly and retain the information. Joe Reynolds explores the factors that need to be considered in developing optimal training devices for patients.
