    What are your current practices for Faslodex injections in the outpatient clinic areas?

    We follow package insert administration guidelines. Sometimes they stand or lay for injections, and per request they can be given at the same time with two nurses administering.

    We use the Z-track method when we give the Faslodex to our patients. They have the option of having separate injection by one nurse of doing 2 at the same time with 2 nurses.  Some prefer to lay down and some like to stand
