Episode 15: Palliative Emergencies End of Life Bleed

Welcome back to another episode from Lincolnshire LMC's Hot Topics. This episode I am delighted to be joined by the fantastic Kerry Bareham Nurse Consultant from St Barnabas Hospice talking about one of the new palliative emergencies care plans. Join us as we discuss what an end of life bleed is, how to identify patients with risk factors and how to support our patients who may be at risk.

We also discuss Project Echo - you can find out more information here Project ECHO: Healthcare goes digital in Lincolnshire (stbarnabashospice.co.uk)
