Yes, you need to see a biologics nurse to be shown how to inject, how it's stored & such. I hope it helps.

Yes, the Rumy nurse will give you instructions usually with a dummy pen, very easy and people have different preferences where they will inject, I personally prefer upper thigh but it is up to the individual, nothing to fear as it is very simple. All The Best

Also You may see the nurse regularly in between you consultant appointments. They have a role in monitoring the drugs effectiveness, it's a very expensive drug hence the monitoring. If it is longer effective then your prescription for it will stop.
