Dr Mandy Man and Nurse Agnes Wong from Hong Kong’s Children Hospital presents a case of supporting young MM and his journey to go home with the help of transmucosal fentanyl.
MM is a 3-year-old boy diagnosed with retroperitoneal embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma since the age of 1. Parents understood the prognosis and wished to facilitate MM’s ability to enjoy every moment of life. When he shared a desire to be discharged and to go home, the team looked into ways to manage his cancer pain at home.
The full story can be accessed via the video below or the PowerPoint slide.
