Most Australians nominate home as their preferred place for end-of-life care. General Practitioners (GPs) are essential to this outcome. GPs play the critical role of proactively recognising and planning for impending end of life, as well as ensuring appropriate prescriptions and medicine orders are available.
Queensland Health has commissioned palliPharm to increase capacity in community-based aged care palliative care. As part of palliPharm, CPD accredited educational workshops are being conducted to upskill GPs and pharmacists on end of life, palliative care and anticipatory medicines to ensure patients receive optimal symptom management at home. Workshops will be conducted around Queensland.

- Encourage collaboration between GPs and pharmacists
