Provide A Second Opinion About Pain Management While Treating Final Stage Of Cancer In An Elderly Patient

I’m taking care of a family member in final stages of cancer. Her pain has increased. Her hospice dr increased her morphine 30 mg to 3 q 12 hrs with 2 tabs in between doses. She also takes liquid morphine 0.5-1 ml q 2 hrs prn. She also has lorazepam to take prn anxiety. I would just like a 2nd opinion of this ( meaning no disrespect to hospice dr) just concerned. Thank you
