Jaylee Lewis – Clare Holland House

  • I provided a presentation at my workplace about my experience on PEPA placement with a specific focus on syringe drivers and medications used in palliative care.
  • The presentation was targeted at registered nurses and was conducted at the beginning of the routine RN meeting.
  • I feel it went well and I have received positive feedback as well as questions about syringe driver compatibility resources, opioid conversion calculators and the palliMEDS smartphone app.
  • One immediate change I can see as a result of my placement is the diluent currently being used in syringe drivers at my facility and implementation of the online education module for syringe drivers within our organisation.
