#palliative care guidelines
Palliative care for adults: strong opioids for pain relief
This guideline covers safe and effective prescribing of strong opioids for pain relief in adults with advanced and progressive disease. It aims to clarify the clinical pathway for prescribing and help to improve pain management and patient safety. Care during the last 2 to 3 days of life is covered by care of dying adults in the last days of life .
In August 2016, recommendation 1.1.12 was deleted and a link added to NICE s guideline on controlled drugs: safe use and management. which has newer advice on the topic. Two out of date research recommendations have also been deleted.
This guideline includes recommendations on:
Who is it for?
- Healthcare professionals
- People who are taking or being offered strong opioids and their families and carers
Is this guideline up to date?
We reviewed the evidence in July 2016. We identified no majorstudies that will affect the recommendations in the next 3 5 years.
Guideline development process
This guideline was previously called opioids in palliative care: safe and effective prescribing of strong opioids for pain in palliative care of adults.
The recommendations in this guideline represent the view of NICE, arrived at after careful consideration of the evidence available. When exercising their judgement, professionals are expected to take this guideline fully into account, alongside the individual needs, preferences and values of their patients or service users. The application of the recommendations in this guideline is not mandatory and the guideline does not override the responsibility of healthcare professionals to make decisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual patient, in consultation with the patient and/or their carer or guardian.
Local commissioners and/or providers have a responsibility to enable the guideline to be applied when individual health professionals and their patients or service users wish to use it. They should do so in the context of local and national priorities for funding and developing services, and in light of their duties to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to reduce health inequalities. Nothing in this guideline should be interpreted in a way that would be inconsistent with compliance with those duties.
#end of life care
End of life care for adults
This NICE quality standard defines clinical best practice within this topic area. It provides specific, concise quality statements, measures and audience descriptors to provide the public, health and social care professionals, commissioners and service providers with definitions of high-quality care.
This quality standard covers all settings and services in which care is provided by health and social care staff to all adults approaching the end of life. This includes adults who die suddenly or after a very brief illness. The quality standard does not cover condition-specific management and care, clinical management of specific physical symptoms or emergency planning and mass casualty incidents.
This quality standard was previously called the quality standard for end of life care for adults.
31 October 2013: Following the independent review of the use of the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) for the Dying Patient and the subsequent announcement of the phasing out of the LCP, interim amendments have been made to this quality standard. These amendments, which relate to the removal of direct and indirect references to the LCP, reflect the gradual phasing out of the LCP and ensure that the quality standard remains current.

Improving supportive and palliative care for adults with cancer
The NICE clinical guidance on supportive and palliative care (CSG) advises those who develop and deliver cancer services for adults with cancer about what is needed to make sure that patients, and their families and carers, are well informed, cared for and supported.
The key recommendations are:
- People affected by cancer should be involved in developing cancer services
- There should be good communication, and people affected by cancer should be involved in decision making
- Information should be available free of charge
- People affected by cancer should be offered a range of physical, emotional, spiritual and social support
- There should be services to help people living with the after-effects of cancer manage these for themselves
- People with advanced cancer should have access to a range of services to improve their quality of life
- There should be support for people dying from cancer
- The needs of family and other carers of people with cancer should be met
- There should be a trained workforce to provide services
Review decision date: June 2014
Review decision: The Improving supportive and palliative care for adults with cancer guideline should not undergo a surveillance review at this point. Please refer to the surveillance review decision for further information.
Next review date: To be confirmed on publication of related guidance
In February 2009 NICE published guidance on advanced breast cancer that complements the cancer service guidance.
