The anticipatory prescribing of injectable medications to manage common symptoms of pain, anxiety, nausea and vomiting, and respiratory tract secretions in the last days of life is recommended practice. (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, 2015) Anticipatory prescribing was initially developed as a workaround to fix healthcare workflow difficulties and enable ready access to medications, especially during out-of-hours periods. The intervention seeks to prevent delays in relieving distress and suffering at the end of life. It is now a widespread key intervention in planning and managing dying at home and in care homes.
