OUR PHILOSOPHY

Pace Health Systems is pleased to  provide you a completely free service, which normally could cost you thousands if you were to buy and maintain your own system.   Our scripts are detailed, describing how the dose was calculated, high quality presentation and tested in routine practice.  They contain hydration schedules, support medications (which you can customize) and general and regime specific precautions. All this to take the headache out of generating scripts - no calculators needed, no hand writing errors etc.  We provide this service with no strings attached, simply because we recognize the need for improving safety in the prescription of chemotherapy protocols.   
All you have to do is fill in the basic information we need to create your prescription (with over 140 protocols to choose from and we are adding to list all the time).   If you want to partially customize your scripts and make them even more user friendly, you will have to register with us.

SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS

In order to create a prescription, you will need to know the protocol number (to see the list click here), and you will need to know the patient height (in cm or inches) and the patient weight (kg or lbs).  We will calculate the surface area according to the standard formula of DuBois and DuBois (and limit it to 2.2m2) and calculate the appropriate dose (rounded up or down appropriately).   

Our scripts will calculate the creatinine clearance for your information - but you have to provide us with the patient age (yrs), sex and creatinine (umol).    

Creatinine clearance (males)= 1.25 x (140-age) x wt(kgs) / creatinine(umol)

Creatinine clearance (females)= 1.05 x (140-age) x wt(kgs) / creatinine(umol)

Some of the support medications will be included (if we recognize your email address from your registration data, we will use your preferences, otherwise we will use our defaults).  After we have created your script, we will email it back to you as a WORD or WordPerfect attachment so you will be free to edit them as you wish.  This will take a few minutes.  (If you give an NHSnet email address, there may be a slight delay as incoming emails are screened through a firewall).       

Remember it is your responsibility to ensure that the details on the scripts are accurate as we do not accept liability for any error.
