Dates in MyDispense are calculated relative to the date that a student undertakes an exercise (the exercise date).
By default, the date on a prescription will be set to the exercise date (offset 0).
If you want to change the prescription date, for example, make the date on a prescription five days before the exercise date, you simply enter -5 to the date field in the prescription.
It is also possible to add relative dates to other elements of the exercise, such as patient notes, by adding a simple code in the format: [d]-x[/d]
Another example could be if you wanted to add a patient note dated 14 days before the exercise date you could type “Patient has nut allergy KS [d]-14[/d]”.
