Palliative Care Emergencies: What? How? Why?

14 Nov 2023
Theatre C: AGM Clinical

Literature suggests that up to 1/3rd of hospital in-patients are in their final 12 months of life. Some of these attend the acute setting with emergency presentations related to complications of an underlying incurable diagnosis. In this session we will consider what constitutes a palliative care emergency, how to manage common presentations (latest evidence and guidelines), and why some models of care may not be optimal, exploring opportunities for more bespoke patient care.
