GPs have a central role in Palliative and End of Life Care and patients greatly value the support they receive from GPs as they approach the end of their lives. It is important to keep up to date with the latest guidance in this area, so in this session we will cover: Place of death and enabling patient choice; Recent research on what patients approaching the end of their lives look for from GPs; Challenges in symptom management: opioids in renal impairment, antiemetic choice, etc.; Anticipatory (“Just in Case”) prescribing; Holding the difficult conversations when prognosis is uncertain.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Hold end of life discussions in a patient-centred way
  • Handle symptom management challenges in end of life care
  • Coordinate the range of care services available for your patients
