Health professionals

Health professionals provide care to community-based palliative care patients.

As a part of holistic care, health professionals can promote effective symptom management by anticipatory prescribing for common end-of-life symptoms and by involving carers/families in symptom management, including preparing and giving subcutaneous medicines for breakthrough symptoms.

The caring@home resources can support this model of care.
