Previous Macmillan Cancer Support and Health Board funded palliative care pharmacy service evaluations in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (urban) and NHS Highland (rural) (1-4) observed a steady integration of the community pharmacy team into local palliative care services. Frontline staff in General Practice, Community Pharmacies and Care Homes in these areas were found to lack knowledge about palliative care medicines amongst their patient group. Both evaluations resulted in the development and testing of training materials in a variety of face-to-face and online formats and for different support staff.
