Supporting carers to manage breakthrough symptoms safely

In Central Queensland, Sunshine Coast, Wide Bay by PHN Communications

caring@home aims to improve the quality of palliative care service delivery across Australia by developing resources that support people to be cared for, and to die at home, if that is their choice.

caring@home is a national project, led by the Brisbane South Palliative Care Collaborative, and funded by the Australian Government. It is producing resources for community service providers, health care professionals and carers to support carers to help manage breakthrough symptoms safely using subcutaneous medicines.

The caring@home website – – was launched in July 2018 to assist health care professionals caring for palliative care patients in the community.

The website provides a wealth of supporting information, clinical viewpoints by guest writers, journal articles and other project information. Education and training resources are in the final stages of development and will be available on the website from November 2018.

Register your interest in the project.
