dc.description.abstractThere is a growing number of people who need access to high quality palliative and end of life care in the home setting. This requires timely assessments of needs, ensuring good symptom management and recognising the roles undertaken by carers. For some patients a range of medications need to be put in place to relieve end of life symptoms using ‘anticipatory prescribing’. District nurses should be sure to acknowledge the patient’s voiced preferences and be mindful of the safety issues which arise with a supply of controlled drugs in the home.
