The use of proportional palliative sedation for the relief of refractory symptoms: an international multicenter study

Project description

Ethical and legal issues in palliative sedation

The EU-funded PalliativeSedation project is investigating how to better help patients with refractory symptoms near the end of life. It focuses on the clinical, ethical, legal and moral aspects of providing deep sedation to dying patients across Europe. The project will review state-of-the-art refractory symptom management on a national level and current practices and guidelines in five international palliative care centres. Qualitative studies should enrich understanding of palliative sedation practices from the perspective of physicians, nurses and bereaved family members. The project will also conduct a moral case deliberation in 16 clinical centres across Europe to investigate clinical decision making regarding refractory symptoms and proportional palliative sedation. An online course should help clinicians, patients and families to better understand palliative sedation use for refractory symptoms.
