BACKGROUND: Actions in preparation for death and talks about death between advanced cancer patients and their families are considered essential to achieve a good death. However, little is known about the prevalence of such actions compared with talks and their association with bereaved families' psychological morbidity. OBJECTIVE: To clarify the prevalence of bereaved families having acted in preparation for death and talked about death with their loved one, and to explore their associations with bereaved families' depression and complicated grief (CG)...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the decision readiness of HMC patients and their family surrogates. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. SETTING/SUBJECTS: We collected data from dyads, consisting of a HMC patient aged 65 years or older and a family member of the patient, recruited at four Japanese primary care clinics from January 2016 to November 2016...

BACKGROUND: In terminal phase cancer, predicting a prognosis precisely plays an important role for patients and their families to live meaningful lives. However, there are no established short-term, objective prognostic predictive methods. OBJECTIVE: To develop simple, short-term, objective prognostic predictive methods through detecting a change point for laboratory test values. DESIGN: A retrospective chart review. SETTING/SUBJECTS: Subjects were cancer patients aged ≥16 years and discharged dead from Osaka University Hospital in 2008...

BACKGROUND: Advanced cancer can erode patients' wellbeing. Narrative interventions have improved patients' wellbeing, but might not be feasible for widespread implementation. OBJECTIVES: (1) Test the effects of miLivingStory, a telephone-based life review and illness narrative intervention with online resources and social networking, on community-dwelling advanced cancer patients' wellbeing. (2) Explore intervention use and satisfaction. PATIENTS AND SETTING: Stage III or IV cancer patients having completed initial therapy were randomized to miLivingStory or to an active control group, miOwnResources...

BACKGROUND: To ensure seriously ill people and their families receive high-quality primary and specialty palliative care services, rigorous methods are needed to prospectively identify this population. OBJECTIVE: To define and operationalize a definition of serious illness for the purpose of identifying patients and caregivers who need primary or specialty palliative care services. DESIGN/SETTING: Two stages of work included (1) building expert consensus around a conceptual definition of serious illness and (2) using the National Health and Aging Trends Study linked to Medicare claims data to test a range of operational definitions composed of diagnoses, utilization, and markers of care needs...

OBJECTIVE: Black patients are more likely than white patients to die in the hospital with intensive care and life-sustaining treatments and less likely to use hospice. Regional concentration of high end-of-life (EOL) treatment intensity practice patterns may disproportionately affect black patients. We calculated and compared race-specific hospital-level EOL treatment intensity in Pennsylvania. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort analysis of Pennsylvania acute care hospital admissions, 2001-2007, among black and white admissions ≥21 years old at high probability of dying (HPD) (≥15% predicted probability of dying at admission)...

BACKGROUND: Although a growing body of literature recommends the early initiation of palliative care (PC), the use of PC remains variable. OBJECTIVE: The current study sought to describe the use of PC and to identify factors associated with the use of inpatient PC. DESIGN: Retrospective, cross-sectional analysis of data from the National Inpatient Sample. SETTING AND SUBJECTS: Patients admitted with a primary diagnosis of gastrointestinal and/or thoracic cancer from 2012 to 2013...
