I appreciate you coming back to me. As with most of our nursing colleagues, I’ve been involved with MDT for quite some time. However, driven by new BMA guidance it would seem we will be playing a greater part in supporting those with end stage degenerative neurological disorders and just assessment ad to the continuation or withdrawal of feeding. Have you had any experiences with these assessments?
we work closely with the palliative care consultants and end of life specialist nurses. We hold trust wide MDT every 2 weeks. Best interest meetings are also often held. we advise for and against feeding depending on the individual their needs and wishes and their quality of life.
