In association with Galway Hospice

During the session, understand more about the role of the hospice pharmacist, the hospice team and how the community pharmacy team supports both. The more commonly used palliative care medicines, particularly those used at end-of-life, the use of the syringe driver, particularly the practical issues encountered in using the syringe driver, and the problems encountered around the availability of palliative care medicines in the community will also be explored.
