An app and website for hospital doctors and general practitioners containing brief suggestions for symptom relief. Based on the 2014 Isle of Wight Symptom Relief Guidelines by Dr Graham Grove and Dr Paul Howard, this booklet is adapted for the Australian context. It contains details about the following: medications useful in the last few hours of life; using continuous subcutaneous infusions; using opioids and treating pain; treating respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological, dermatological and systemic symptoms in palliative patients; and treating acute complications of cancer.
