Medical Goals of Care and Limitation of Treatment

The aim of the Medical Goals of Care Plan is to ensure that patients who are unlikely to benefit from medical treatment aimed at cure, receive care appropriate to their condition and are not subjected to burdensome or futile treatments. In particular this concerns cardiopulmonary resuscitation and Medical Emergency Team (MET) calls, which may otherwise occur if the patient's condition deteriorates. A set of Principles - Medical Goals of Care (GOC) Plan underlines this aim.
