This team has gone above and beyond to support the improvement of palliative services delivered by community pharmacies. To do this they’ve developed a resources folder – endorsed by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society – which provides comprehensive palliative care information for community pharmacy staff, GPs and district nurses. They have also built up links with 291 community pharmacies, which all have access to the folder.
The project has already significantly improved access to palliative care medicine in the community and, following an evaluation by the University of Strathclyde demonstrating its impact, the team were able to provide evidence to support the further development of this work.
