Abstract The article reports on the role of general practitioners facilitating palliative care in the home in Australia. They showed improvements in diagnostic accuracy, application of evidence-based treatments, identification of systematic problems and in handling deaths at home. Their performance was preferred because of the ease in getting an appointment, tendency to make home visits, time to listen and discuss matters, and due to their efforts in providing relief.
