Anticipatory prescribing in primary care

In this episode, doctors Lisa and Sara talk to specialty doctor Caitriona MacDermott about anticipatory prescribing for palliative patients.

This is an area where there has been much learning over the last few years. The podcast episode presents a good opportunity to find out more about why this is the case, including the stages involved in recognition and addressing symptoms at the end of life, the need for regular reviews in terms of the potential for change and advice on how to open up conversations around future needs, death and symptom control.
