Supportive and palliative care
Guidance is available relating to patients being managed outside of critical care and who are thought likely to die in the coming hours or days despite all previous or ongoing best efforts.
There are reports that some patients dying from COVID-19 suffer a significant degree of delirium or agitation which may be difficult to manage.
Please see the "Downloads" section for further guidance.
Further advice on symptom control can also be obtained from the relevant hospital site’s supportive and palliative care team.
