Mobile Administration Program (MAP)

Your patients may prefer to receive treatment at a time and place of their choosing because it can be more convenient, comfortable, and cost-effective than traveling to a medical facility. The MAP program provides eligible patients with access to a trained nurse to come administer their Sandostatin® LAR® injections at a time and location convenient to them.



Contact your local Novartis representative for more information on MAP.
