NSW Community Pharmacy Palliative Care Initiative
Client: Clinical Excellence Commission
Project duration: 4 months
The NSW Community Pharmacy Palliative Care Initiative is a two-year project aimed at enhancing palliative care services within NSW through supporting the role of community pharmacy in improving medication management for people with palliative care needs. The NSW Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC) is leading this initiative on behalf of the NSW Government.
ZEST assisted CEC in undertaking state-wide consultation and engagement with representatives across the NSW health, community pharmacy and palliative care sectors. Consultations delivered a shared understanding of the current issues and priorities for community pharmacy involvement in palliative care, to inform the CEC initiative.
