Prescribing Intravenous Iron – Provincial Program Roll-Out

The Saskatchewan Health Authority began the launch of the provincial Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) Management program on June 3, 2024. Implementation of the program involves a mandatory outpatient IV iron order set that can be accessed here. The order set is scheduled to be gradually rolled out across the province in the coming months. A memo containing a more detailed site-specific timeline can be found here. The program will affect ALL OUTPATIENT IV iron prescribing once implemented in your community.
