palliPHARM for residential and aged care communities
palliPHARM for residential and aged care communities aims to facilitate mechanisms that ensure community palliative patients, whether in residential aged care facilities (RACFs) or private homes, have timely access to palliative care medicines, if needed.
This project was funded by the Queensland Government from 2020 to 2022 as part of the COVID-19 response and has since been subsumed into PallConsult, a statewide palliative care service available in Queensland. More information is available from the palliPHARM Factsheet or by visiting the PallConsult website (www.pallconsult.com.au).
To support the palliPHARM project, PSA is providing links to education opportunities, resources and content relevant to palliative care, giving practice support to pharmacists providing services to palliative patients residing in the community.
palliPHARM resources continue to be useful for pharmacists’ practice and remain a palliPHARM project legacy.
