About us

Phase-out is an initiative by Claes Lundgren, MD, a general practitioner and resident in palliative care. The initiative has evolved into national Swedish guidelines on how to re-evaluate and discontinue drug treatment.

The guidelines are developed in close collaboration between, and fully funded by, the Drug and Therapeutic Committees of Sweden. The work has been coordinated primarily by the DTCs of Västerbotten County Council and Region Halland.

The first Swedish version was published in 2005. The Swedish printed and electronic version (currently in their 3rd edition) are distributed to all Swedish physicans and medical students. In addition, it is distributed to nurses and other health-care professionals depending on their needs.
