Video builds carer confidence in giving injectable medications


From Palliative Matters

Dear friends, a video designed for carers looking after someone at the end of life who may need to administer medication to control symptoms such as pain, nausea, vomiting, anxiety or terminal restlessness has been created in Australia.

A significant proportion of the Grampians region did not have 24-hour access to on-call palliative care services. This made it important for carers to be empowered to proactively  manage end-of-life symptoms. They have people in very isolated areas where hospitals may be a two-hour drive away.

Please read and share this article on presenting the information in written and video formats catered to different learning styles. It may be an idea for your palliative care service!
