palliAGEDgp This smartphone app supports general practitioners (GPs) who are caring for older palliative patients living at home or in residential care.

As the majority of deaths are expected, death can be planned for and the required care delivered in a pre-emptive fashion. GPs have a central role in planning and providing for that care.

CareSearch provides trustworthy information about palliative care for patients, carers and families as well as for the health professionals providing their care.
