Adalimumab toolkit for commissioners and providers

Ben Rehman, Assistant Head (Medicines Optimisation), Specialist Pharmacy ServicePublished

The Commissioning Support Units have produced an interactive toolkit and associated resources on behalf of (and approved by) the Regional Medicines Optimisation Committees. These resources are for use by commissioners and providers to support implementation of best-value biologic medicines, with particular focus on adalimumab as biosimilars will become available following the Humira® (biologic originator) patent expiry in October 2018.  The toolkit is also supported by a number of other documents.
