Clinical Emergencies in Palliative Care

Even within the context of palliative care some situations are emergencies. What are they? Can we prevent them? How do we manage them? What consequences do they hold? The aim of this session is to address these questions and explore practical and non-practical issues which need to be considered:

• Hypercalcaemia of malignancy
• Superior vena cava obstruction
• Haemorrhage
• Fits
• Malignant spinal cord compression
• Fractures
