Migraine Patient Support Programme
We have developed a suite of patient resources designed to support your patients on their treatment with Aimovig®. These support tools include:
www.aimoassist.ie (password for entry required: “aimovig” - all lower case)
This is a patient focused website providing useful information for patients starting treatment with Aimovig®, including an injection training video, instructions for use, support tools, and hints and tips for managing treatment with Aimovig®.
Aimovig® Nurse Support Programme
This is a free programme designed to provide education and support to patients throughout their Aimovig® treatment experience should they require it. Once patients register for the programme, the Aimovig® Support Nurse will contact them and will be on hand to provide personalised support for their Aimovig® treatment. Home visits with the Aimovig® Novartis Nurse can be arranged should your patients require it.
Aimovig® Green Returns Programme
The Aimovig® Green Returns Programme has been developed to provide a sharps bin delivery and collection service to people who have been prescribed Aimovig®. This programme ensures that your sharps bins are handled in the most sustainable way possible. These sharps bins are sterilised and reused, reducing carbon, plastic, and water waste. For every 1,000 bins reused, this is the equivalent of 15.3 TONNES of carbon saved from going into the atmosphere. That’s the equivalent of 56,677 car miles or (90,000) kilometres travelled! The service is provided to patients free of charge by HealthBeacon on behalf of Novartis, the manufacturers of Aimovig®. Please read the attached leaflet for more details. Once you have read this leaflet you would like join the Aimovig® Green Returns Programme you can call HealthBeacon on 01-2118371 and a HealthBeacon customer service representative will give you further details of the service and obtain verbal consent from you that you wish to register for the service.
