Given the acute and often life-limiting nature of surgical illness, as well as the potential for treatment to induce further suffering, surgical patients have considerable palliative care needs. Yet, these patients are less likely to receive palliative care than their medical counterparts and palliative care consultations often occur when death is imminent, reflecting poor quality end-of-life care. Surgical patients would likely benefit from early palliative care delivered alongside surgical treatment to promote goal-concordant decision making and to improve patients' physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being and quality of life...

BACKGROUND: Quality of care provided by hospice and palliative care agencies depends on a thorough understanding of the patient, the family, their history, and current risk factors. It is therefore imperative for social workers and other providers in these settings to assess patients and caregivers for substance use disorders and potential for substance misuse. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to examine how hospice social workers in the United States screen and assess for alcohol and substance use and risk of medication diversion among patients and family caregivers...

OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship between end-of-life (EOL) treatment preferences and recent hospitalization or emergency department (ED) care in the very old. DESIGN: Quarterly telephone follow-up of participants in the EOL in the Very Old cohort. SETTING: The EOL in the Very Old Age cohort drew from 1403 participants in the Health, Aging, and Body Composition (Health ABC) study who were alive in year 15 of follow-up. 87.5% (n = 1227) were successfully recontacted and enrolled...

CONTEXT: Problems with sexual function can have a detrimental effect on quality of life. Symptomatic heart failure has been associated with problems with sexual function, although the majority of reports are focused on men and erectile dysfunction. Understanding women's perception of and gender differences in problems with sexual function in heart failure could yield new insights. OBJECTIVES: To determine the gender differences in reporting and bothersomeness of problems with sexual function, defined as sexual interest or activity...

BACKGROUND: Out of respect for terminal patients' dignity and to decrease end-of-life suffering, patients in Taiwan can choose to sign do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders and use hospice care when they are in a terminal condition. OBJECTIVES: To explore the trends and characteristics of hospice care utilization and DNR status among terminal cancer patients. Design and Setting/Subjects: A secondary data analysis was conducted to examine the rate of DNR orders, hospice care utilization, the survival time after DNR order, the duration of survival (DOS) after hospice care enrollment, and the rate of late referral to hospice care among patients who died from malignant cancers in a tertiary hospital in Taiwan between 2008 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Long-standing concern exists over hospital use by people near or at the end of life (EOL) related to the appropriateness, quality, and cost of care in hospital. It is widely believed that most people die in hospital after an escalation in hospital use over the last year of life. As most deaths in high-income countries are not sudden or unexpected, opportunities exist for planning compassionate, effective, and evidence-based EOL care. OBJECTIVE: Gain current population-based evidence for EOL health policy and services planning...

BACKGROUND: While effective communication is important in the care of seriously ill patients, little is known about communication challenges faced by healthcare providers serving U.S. patients of South Asian origin, one of the fastest growing demographic groups in the United States. OBJECTIVE: Researchers sought to examine communication challenges faced by healthcare providers serving seriously ill South Asian patients and their families and present strategies recommended by providers for effective communication...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of dexmedetomidine infusions in patients with advanced malignancies, advanced heart disease, or after stem cell transplantation (SCT), who during end-of-life care had pain and/or agitation unresponsive to conventional therapies. BACKGROUND: Pediatric patients with intractable advanced malignancies, end-stage congenital heart diseases, or after SCT can suffer a great deal during end of life. Pain, drowsiness, fatigue, irritability, and worrying are experienced frequently, considered distressing, and are strongly associated with reductions in health-related quality-of-life scores...
