Resource Description

This 41-minute webinar is about the Community Pharmacies in Palliative Care (ComPPaCT) project.

Primary Health Tasmania (PHT) and The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) are working together to provide associated training for doctors and pharmacists introducing them to Community Pharmacies in Palliative Care (ComPPaCT).

ComPPaCT – is a multiphase project to support delivery of palliative care services in the community in Tasmania. A key group of stakeholders have agreed on a Core Medicines List to support palliative care patients to stay home for as long as possible at end of life. To support this pharmacies are being asked to sign up to always keep these medicines in stock so people can find them when they need them.

This session will introduce ComPPaCT  and the core list of palliative medicines which is available in pharmacies to support people in the community. Palliative Care Prepared Pharmacies always keep these medicines in stock, so people can find what they need when they need them, to help them to stay at home as long as possible. The session will also include a clinical education component that will address the role of anticipatory prescribing in palliative care and the barriers and facilitators to this way of prescribing. This interactive session will provide practical details of how this can work in practice.
