About this event

GP Pharmacological Interventions for Palliative Care Symptoms - Series of 6 videos

CPD Video Resources for GPs

GPs are faced with an increased pressure to deliver palliative care with our ageing population. Concerns over managing challenging symptoms can be alleviated with appropriate knowledge and support. A palliative perspective will be applied to the most common palliative care symptoms to give GPs a broad overview. Each video looks at the pharmacological intervention specific to each symptom from a palliative care specialist point of view. It recognises the importance of non-pharmacological interventions either prior and/ or in addition to medications.

Learning outcomes

1. Identify the most common palliative care symptoms.

2. Determine the appropriate pharmacological intervention required to manage each symptom.

3. Demonstrate a palliative approach through prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of the most common palliative care symptoms.

Topics

1. Medications at end of life 4. Dyspnoea in palliative care

2. Pain in palliative care 5. Constipation in palliative care

3. Nausea and vomiting in palliative care 6. Delirium in palliative care

Presented by
