The palliMEDS app, developed by NPS Medicinewise for caring@home, familiarises primary care prescribers with eight palliative care medicines that have been endorsed by the Australian & New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine (ANZSPM) for management of terminal symptoms.

The ANZSPM-endorsed medicines can be used to manage common emergent symptoms in home-based palliative care patients in the last few weeks of life, when people often have problems swallowing. 

It is hoped that the palliMEDS app will contribute to the provision of quality palliative care for the increasing number of Australians who wish to be cared for, and to die at home if possible.
