Your Host: Prof. Liz Reymond

Cost: Complimentary

About the Webinar:

Research indicates that carers who are supported with education and resources, tailored to their needs, can confidently, safely and competently manage subcutaneous medicines to relieve breakthrough symptoms in home-based palliative care patients.

caring@home, a project funded by the Australian Government, has produced standardised best-practice resources, for community service providers, health care professionals and carers, that support teaching carers to help manage breakthrough symptoms. The resources are applicable to all jurisdictions in Australia.

This webinar aims to introduce the caring@home resources and discuss how the resources can be used by services to support carers and deliver high-quality palliative care to people who wish to be cared for, and if possible, to die at home.

The webinar will include:

• a short presentation about the caring@home resources

• a panel discussion with five health care professionals who use the resources

• questions from participants.
