The Australian Government-funded National Palliative Care project, CareSearch, has launched the CareSearchgp app, a digital tool providing GPs with terminal prescribing guidance and evidence-based information to support quality care at the end of life.

It includes information about:

  • advance care planning
  • recognising deterioration
  • engaging in palliative care case conferences
  • caring for the dying patient, and
  • assisting families through stages of bereavement

The CareSearchgp app replaces and updates palliAGEDgp app which is being used by more than 5,000 GPs.

From 1 June, palliAGEDgp app will no longer be supported.
