Palliative Care Deserves Physicians’ Attention - HealthLeaders Media

Palliative care is the comprehensive treatment for the very sick, but not for those who are dying.  Although not widely practiced, palliative care is becoming part of the discussion among healthcare leaders to improve care and trim costs.

 

Because the scope of care is evolving for the elderly populations, it's important that physicians work closely with families to consider palliative or hospice care options. The Sutter Health system, a network of doctors and hospitals in northern California, has an advanced illness management program that partners with patients and families to better coordinate care for palliative patients and also consider end of life options, says Brad Stuart, MD, chief medical officer at the Sutter Care at Home in Fairfield, Calif.

 

Stuart says it's important that both disciplines (palliative and hospice) "collaborate for the best outcomes we can have." Much of the focus for improved patient care, especially those in palliative care, is moving toward " focusing on goals of patients in their own lives."

Patient Experience - Leaders in the Patient Experience: Diane Meier, Palliative Care

Patient Experience - Leaders in the Patient Experience: Diane Meier, Palliative Care | Palliative care | Scoop.it

Diane Meier, a pioneer in the field of palliative medicine, has spent years trying to get the word out about palliative care. She says most people think it’s end-of-life care, and while it sometimes precedes end-of-life care, it’s care at any point of life that is focused on treating and alleviating symptoms, pain and stresses, and on improving quality of life as perceived by the patient.

Effect of a Compassion-Focused Training Program in Palliative Care Education for Medical Students.

Experience with caring for patients with terminal cancer was positively related to improvement in the decision of "truth telling is helpful to a good death." In addition, improvement in the perception of "compassionate care" was correlated with higher improvement in the decision of "discharge planning and home care."

We present the case of a 30-year-old patient with pontine glioblastoma multiforme, World Health Organisation grade IV (WHO IV). This case is of particular interest in terms of the patient’s use of social media as a medium of expression. This popular form of communication raises important clinical, ethical and social issues relating to confidentiality and the nature of the physician–patient relationship in a unique context.

Factors associated with perceived barriers to pediatric palliative care: a survey of pediatricians in Florida and California

The two greatest barriers reported by the pediatricians were related to families’ reluctance to accept palliative care (95%) and families viewing palliative care as giving up (94%). Only 42% of pediatricians noted that reimbursement was a barrier. Across all the regressions, three factors were consistently associated with barriers to palliative care: race/ethnicity of pediatrician practice setting, and the percentage of low-income patients.
