Use of antibiotics towards the end of life

SAPG convened a multi-professional group of experts in end of life care and antimicrobial stewardship to develop evidence-based good practice recommendations for clinicians considering the use of antibiotics in patients towards the end of life.

Findings from a literature review and a survey of clinicians experience were triangulated and group discussion was used to generate consensus on how to approach decision-making.
