Symptom Management in the Terminal Phase: Turning Challenges into Opportunities

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstract


Symptoms can be anticipated in the terminal phase. How these symptoms are managed, influences the person's comfort, level of carer stress and therefore, their ability to die in their home.
Nurse practitioners (NPs) and general practitioners (GPs) are well placed to lead care into the terminal phase. The palliAGED “Symptoms and Medicines” pages have guided NPs and GPs to trusted Australian resources relating to care of people in the terminal phase over a number of years.
