not already exist. NHS England and NHS Improvement Goals of care The treatment of patients suffering from coronavirus may be orientated towards: • • • Supportive measures – for example, provision of fluids and/or oxygen. Targeted treatment – for example, provision of antibiotics to treat pneumonia. Organ support – for example, ventilator support, renal replacement therapy, etc. These are aimed at preserving and prolonging life. It is important to remember that most people with coronavirus will survive (...) supportive treatments and management of their comorbidities has been optimised. The good practice approach to symptom management is as follows: • Correct the correctable, for example, give the patient antibiotics for a bacterial infection. • Non-drug approaches, especially in mild to moderate disease – see Appendix 1. 3 | Clinical guide for the management of palliative care in secondary care during the coronavirus pandemic, Version 1 • Drug approaches – see Appendix 1.
