BACKGROUND: Most people prefer to die at home, yet most do not. Understanding factors associated with terminal hospitalization may inform interventions to improve care. OBJECTIVE: Among patients with chronic illness receiving care in a multihospital healthcare system, we identified the following: (1) predictors of death in any hospital; (2) predictors of death in a hospital outside the system; and (3) trends from 2010 to 2015. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort using death certificates and electronic health records...

BACKGROUND: Prognostic uncertainty is common in advanced cancer and frequently addressed during palliative care consultation, yet we know little about its impact on quality of life (QOL). OBJECTIVE: We describe the prevalence and distribution of distress due to prognostic uncertainty among hospitalized patients with advanced cancer before palliative care consultation. We evaluate the association between this type of distress and overall QOL before and after palliative care consultation...

BACKGROUND: Due to the aging population of China, the need for palliative care will increase. However, one of the barriers to utilization of palliative care is the traditional belief that talking about death and dying is taboo. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine to what extent older Chinese patients were willing to answer questions about death and dying by asking them about "fear of death" and their desire to "use advanced life support when dying." DESIGN: Survey questionnaire...

BACKGROUND: When Medicare Advantage (MA) patients elect hospice, all covered services are reimbursed under the Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) program. This financial arrangement may incentivize MA plans to refer persons to hospice near end of life when costs of care typically rise. OBJECTIVE: To characterize hospice discharge patterns for MA versus FFS patients and examine whether patterns differ by MA concentration across hospital referral regions (HRRs). DESIGN AND MEASUREMENT: The rate and pattern of live discharges and length of stay (LOS) between FFS and MA patients were examined...

BACKGROUND: It is unknown how many hospice enrollees elect to be full code and if this is associated with higher hospice live discharge rates. OBJECTIVE: To measure the rates of hospice enrollees electing full code, the characteristics predicting full code status, and the association of full code status with various hospice live discharge patterns. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of electronic medical record data. SETTING/SUBJECTS: A total of 25,636 decedents enrolled in two Michigan hospices between 2009 and 2014...

OBJECTIVE: To describe our institutional experience with a four-week pediatric HPM elective rotation and its impact on residents' self-rated competencies. BACKGROUND: In the spirit of bolstering primary hospice and palliative medicine (HPM) skills of all pediatricians, it is unclear how best to teach pediatric HPM. An elective rotation during residency may serve this need. METHODS: An anonymous online survey was distributed to pediatric and internal medicine/pediatrics residents at a single, tertiary academic children's hospital...

BACKGROUND: Advance care planning (ACP) is recommended for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Yet, ACP documentation is often inaccessible at the time of impending respiratory failure, which may lead to unwanted and costly medical intensive care unit admissions. Electronic medical records (EMRs) contain directive fields and the ability to search for keywords and phrases, but these strategies to rapidly identify ACP have not been validated. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to identify the percentage of patients with severe COPD exacerbation who have outpatient ACP documentation and validate two EMR-based methods of rapidly identifying ACP documentation...

BACKGROUND: Palliative care is an evolving but underdeveloped practice in Mexico. OBJECTIVE: The primary end point of this prospective observational study was to identify internal medicine inpatients fulfilling advanced criteria within a second-level hospital. Secondary end points were symptom burden, treatment, resource utilization, and one-year survival. DESIGN AND MEASUREMENTS: The 390-sample size calculation was based on previous studies where 15% of inpatients fulfilled palliative care needs...

BACKGROUND: Identification of older adults with serious illness (life expectancy less than one year) who may benefit from serious illness conversations or other palliative care interventions in the emergency department (ED) is difficult. OBJECTIVES: To assess the performance of the "surprise question (SQ)" asked of emergency physicians to predict 12-month mortality. DESIGN: We asked attending emergency physician "Would you be surprised whether this patient died in the next 12 months?" regarding patients ≥65 years old that they had cared for that shift...
