Review of end-of-life treatment is very important as it helps in the management of symptoms and suffering at the end of life, and may lead healthcare professionals to eliminate drugs and treatments that are not necessary and in some cases may be detrimental to managing symptoms at the end of life.
This study within the iLIVE project is developing and evaluating a digital tool connected to the patient's medical record to help healthcare professionals review treatment and make decisions to adapt it to the needs of each person in the last days of life by removing or adding medication according to the need of the moment.
