PalliMEDS is a free app to support the clinical knowledge of health professionals who prescribe palliative care medicines or care for people at their end of life.
This easy-to-search mobile reference tool pulls together prescribing information for medicines endorsed by the Australian & New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine and associated recommendations from Australian Therapeutic Guidelines on palliative care.
Search by symptom or medicine, view dosing considerations, access useful resources, and quickly see which medicines are TGA-approved and PBS listed.
Separate sections on medicine management at the end of life, use of off-label medicines, medico- legal issues, and carer support are also included.
The palliMEDS app is a collaboration between NPS MedicineWise and the caring@home team. It is part of an Australian Government funded project called caring@home.
