The CareSearchgp smartphone app supports GPs in delivering quality palliative care across the life course. It brings together guidance on terminal prescribing for specific symptoms and evidence-based information on key care issues including:

  • Advance care planning
  • Recognising deterioration
  • Engaging in palliative care case conferences
  • Caring for the dying patient, and
  • Assisting families through stages of bereavement.

The app also includes interactive features. GPs can create a list of links to quality resources tailored to the needs of individual patients. They can also curate their own collection of professional learning opportunities. Both these lists of resources can be emailed out of the app to an email account. The app also includes the Home Death Checklist which can be filled in and emailed when supporting an individual patient to die at home.

The CareSearchgp app is available for free download from the Apple and Google Play stores.
