2 Erythropoietin is a glycoprotein hormone that controls and regulates red blood cell production. It is produced and secreted in the kidney. Chronic renal failure is associated with various degrees of anemia due to erythropoietin deficiency resulting from multiple factors 2

3  Decreased erythropoietin production as a result of kidney damage.  Decreased RBC lifespan secondary to uremia.  Reduced bone marrow response to circulating erythropoietin.  Ongoing blood losses from dialyzer and tubing, blood sampling, gastrointestinal blood loss, and blood losses at the time of dialysis needle placement and removal.  Depletion of iron stores precedes impaired production of iron-containing proteins, the most prominent of which is hemoglobin 3

4  Till the end of 2009 our patients received monthly prescriptions for medications and were required to purchase them personally. The reasons that this procedure was never smooth and effective were :  Physician’s decisions were based on narrow scope of data.  Delays in delivering reports to the physicians.  Patients were unreliable in purchasing and delivering medications on-time. 4

5 In order to reduce the burden and relieve the patients from this tedious procedure we decided to make the ward responsible for the monthly drug supply. 5

6 On December 2009 a new role was established : Anemia Coordinator 6
