Kashyap Patel, MD: Nurses' Roles in Biosimilar Education

Kashyap Patel, MD, explains the role that nurses play in educating patients about biosimilars.


Nurses have been explaining to the patient what biosimilars are—some of the basic education that they are like generics, they have undergone enormous amounts of safety and efficacy as well as pharmacokinetic studies. So they really alleviate any concerns and anxieties that the patients have when we switch patients over, or when we start any new patients on the biosimilars.
