2) Once the Manage Practice web page loads, scroll down to the bottom and click on 'Manage Templates'.
3) Choose from either "My Templates" or your practice templates
Creating a template under "My Templates" will mean the template is only visible for you and cannot be accessed or edited by anyone else.
Creating a template under your practice templates (e.g. "The AccuRx Practice (-1) Templates") will mean the template can be seen and edited by anyone in the practice
4) Click "Create New"
5) You will now be able to compose your template. Give your template a title and add content. You can also add a category to group your template or a SNOMED code! 😁
