The caring@home online education modules are intended for use by registered nurses to teach them about training carers to use subcutaneous medicines to manage breakthrough symptoms.
Brisbane South Palliative Care Collaborative
The caring@home resources support community-based services to improve symptom control by integrating carers into the multidisciplinary team and supporting them to help manage breakthrough symptoms safely using subcutaneous medicines. In addition to resources to support nurse training of carers, educational resources and information are provided for General practitioners, nurse practitioners, community pharmacists and allied health professionals to support carers in this role.
