Prescribed medication at end of life
This will depend on the individual child:
- Aim to minimise the burden of treatment. Only give treatment when needed.
- Stop supplements or any medications which will not affect the child’s outcome.
- Rationalise and continue analgesia and symptom control drugs.
- Review the use of medications that address the underlying condition, such as diuretics for heart failure, as they may still be useful at the end-of-life.
