Consider stopping treatment with 'limited benefit' in multimorbidity, advises NICE


It is hard to have a guideline to tell you details about how you can categoretically stop certain drugs . The guidance was bound to be ambiguously worded instead of totally pragmatic , especially when NICE is not going to stop releasing single disease guidelines all the time. I agree that at least on the legal angle , this at least represents a sound argument giving some grounds for GPs to stand their feet in court should medical disputes arise about whether treatment(s) should be carried on or not .
