The provision of palliative care is not about a place it is about the knowledge base of those assisting a person with a life-limiting illness to manage their symptoms so they can live the rest of the life they have in comfort doing the things they want to do.

There is a plethora of information available to Nursing staff on palliative care from a large number of organisations – all with the same goal of making the palliative experience better for the person who has the disease. The vision being that if health care workers have up to date knowledge then palliative care can be provided in any setting.

As a clinician, it can be difficult to keep up to date with all the latest medications. NPS in conjunction with the [email protected] initiative has created a great App called palliMEDS where you can get information on the medication used in end-stage disease, off label use of medicines, legal issues, and support for carers managing sub-cutaneous medication.
