    Abstract

    This poster describes the development of a mousemat to aid GPs in safe and effective prescribing at end of life. The mousemat has advice on prescribing anticipatory medication and using syringe drivers. This innovative approach has been hugely welcomed by GPs who find it practical and accessible.

    300 have been given to GPs, OOH services and District Nurses in St Helens and Knowsley and other areas across Merseyside and Cheshire plan to adapt the format for local use.
