MAR warning messages - Hazardous Medicines - Occupational Exposure

Dear all,

We're interested in what advice other health services provide on their EMR/MAR in relation to the occupational risk posed by cytotoxic and other hazardous medicines.

- Are MAR notes or labels used?
- How is it presented?
- Is PPE advice provided?
- Do you link to external resources for this information?
- How is this information maintained (e.g., for new medicines)?

Any other advice is appreciated.

Kind regards,
