Research suggests that health professionals may be afraid to provide palliative medicine because they are worried about whether it is lawful, particularly when a person is close to death. In their latest blog, Professor Ben White, Professor Lindy Willmott, Distinguished Professor Patsy Yates and Penny Neller from Queensland University of Technology discuss how the Australian law applies to providing palliative medicine at the end of life.
Pharmacists can do more than simply fill prescriptions. They can help palliative patients and those living with chronic illnesses manage, review, organise and dispose of medicines. In this CareSearch blog, Paul Tait of Southern Adelaide Palliative Services discusses how to work with pharmacists so they can better support your needs.
