General practitioners

General practitioners manage care of community-based palliative care patients. As a part of holistic care, GPs can promote effective symptom management by anticipatory prescribing for common end-of-life symptoms and by involving carers in symptom management, including preparing and giving subcutaneous medicines for breakthrough symptoms. The caring@home resources can support this model of care.
