This webinar with Dr Stephen Barclay and Carly Love is being delivered as part of the GP Fellowship Education Programme. It is open to Cambridgeshire and Peterborough GPs who are on the C&P GP Fellowship Scheme or who are within their first 5 years of practice.

The session is specifically tailored for newly qualified GPs. The goals of the session are to increase confidence and understanding of management of palliative care patients and to improve understanding of and ability to access appropriate services.

The session will cover:

  • Accessing services:
    • What services are available
    • Who is appropriate for the different services
    • Where to go to access help
    • Community services and hospice services available – who, what and when?
  • Difficult conversations
  • Top tips for newly qualified GPs – including prescribing, managing continuity for patients, managing palliative care patients in COVID times and what can be managed remotely.
  • Difficult case discussions with break out rooms for small group discussion.
  • Q+A session – an opportunity to discuss difficult cases or scenarios encountered.
