Janssen CarePath provides injection support resources that may assist you and your patients.

TREMFYA® Injection Training Support Program

The TREMFYA® Injection Training Support Program provides patients with additional training support to continue their TREMFYA® treatment with confidence.

How the Program works:

  1. The self-injection training is conducted live by a Registered Nurse, either in-person or over the phone*
  2. Your patient can only enroll once you, their healthcare provider, and your patient have confirmed that initial self-injection training has been completed in your office
  3. This program is intended as patient education to reinforce proper injection technique

To have your patients enroll in the TREMFYA® Injection Training Support Program, they must first fill out a program enrollment form, which you can provide after they have met the program eligibility requirements.

DOWNLOAD THE ENROLLMENT FORM

The TREMFYA® Injection Training Support Program is limited to education for patients about their Janssen therapy, its administration, and/or their disease. It is intended to supplement a patient's understanding of their therapy, and is not intended to provide medical advice, replace a treatment plan from the patient's doctor or nurse, provide case management services, or serve as a reason to prescribe.

*In-person live training may not be available in all areas.

A Nurse is Just a Phone Call Away
Even after you’ve trained your patients to give themselves an injection of TREMFYA®, they may still have questions. Janssen Nurse Support* can help answer their questions about giving themselves an injection at home, preparing their injection site prior to self-injecting, and properly disposing of their used syringe.

Connect your patients with Janssen Nurse Support at 877-CarePath (877-227-3728), available Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM ET. At all other times, a nurse will typically return their call in 15 minutes.

*The nurse program is limited to education for patients about their Janssen therapy, its administration, and/or their disease, and is not intended to provide medical advice, replace a treatment plan from the patient's doctor or nurse, or provide case management services.
