Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Define the oncology and palliative care emergencies that you are likely to encounter in primary care
  • Describe a management plan for each of these emergencies
  • Explain the factors that influence your decision as to whether active management of a patient with terminal disease is appropriate
  • Recognise that being involved with an oncology or palliative care emergency can be stressful not only for the patient, but also for the health professionals and carers/relatives involved
  • Recognise the importance of reflection when involved in a palliative care emergency

The General Practice (GP) curriculum requires GPs to be able to manage oncology and palliative care emergencies that may arise in the community.
