A half-day course covering the essentials for delivering what we believe is one of the most rewarding parts of primary care, if not the whole of medicine.

We will cover:

  • Identifying people who will benefit from supportive care: the pragmatic way. 
  • Different disease trajectories: challenges and opportunities for support and proactive planning.
  • Tricky symptom management: including pain, nausea and vomiting, breathlessness and bone pain. 
  • Handling tricky conversations: Advance Care Planning, DNACPR and hydration and nutrition.
  • Managing complex patients at home, and how to avoid escalation and admission. 
  • Palliative care emergencies and why this idea isn’t a misnomer.
  • Hugs and hand holding? Post-COVID palliative care: discussion and some practical ideas about how we might find a new equilibrium for how we consult with our end-of-life care patients.
