CONTEXT: Infants of age < 1 year have the highest mortality rate in pediatrics. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published guidelines for palliative care in 2013, however, significant variation persists among local protocols addressing neonatal comfort care at the end-of-life (EOL). OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate current neonatal EOL comfort care practices and clinician satisfaction across America METHODS: After Institutional Review Board approval (516005), an anonymous, electronic survey was sent to members of the AAP Section on Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine...

CONTEXT: Low-income patients face barriers to palliative care access, which might negatively influence symptom management and advanced care planning. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to compare time of referral and characteristics (level of symptom distress) among uninsured (indigent), low-insured (Medicaid), and insured patients presenting to our Supportive Care Center (SCC). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of randomly selected 100 indigent, 100 Medicaid and 300 insured outpatients referred during the same 5-year period...

BACKGROUND: Shared decisions between health care providers and patients and families are replacing the traditional physician-driven plans of care. Hospice philosophy recognizes the patient and family as a unit of care and embraces their role in decision making. AIM: The goal of this study was to evaluate the shared decisions between hospice nurses and patients and family members. DESIGN: A secondary analysis of audio recordings of 65 home hospice nurse visits Settings/participants: 65 home hospice nurse visits in 11 different US hospice programs RESULTS: To varying degrees, hospice nurses used all the recommended elements of shared decision making during home visits with patients and families; however, not all elements were used in every visit...

CONTEXT: The Patient Dignity Inventory (PDI) is a valid, reliable screening tool to assess a range of issues that have been reported to affect the sense of dignity in patients with life-limiting conditions. OBJECTIVES: We investigated the item characteristics, factor structure, and reliability of the Czech version of the PDI (PDI-CZ) among cancer and non-cancer patients. METHODS: The PDI was translated into the Czech language following state-of-the-art criteria (a five-stage proceeding method for the translation)...

CONTEXT: Tai Chi exercise has been shown to improve cancer-related fatigue (CRF) and autonomic nervous system (ANS) balance in some cancer patients or survivors, however, such effects are yet to be verified in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients undergoing chemoradiotherapy. OBJECTIVES: To explore the effects of Tai Chi exercise on CRF in NPC patients undergoing chemoradiotherapy and then to evaluate ANS information indicated by heart rate variability (HRV) parameters and their association with CRF...

CONTEXT: Malignant bowel obstruction (MBO) impairs the quality of life in patients with advanced cancer. Octreotide, acid-suppressing medications such as H<sub>(2)</sub>-receptor antagonists (H<sub>(2)</sub> blockers) and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), and corticosteroids are often used in combination for symptom control. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the practice patterns of medications for patients hospitalized with MBO using a large claims database in Japan...

CONTEXT: Little is known about patient and physician factors that affect decisions to pursue more or less aggressive treatment courses for patients with advanced illness. OBJECTIVES: This study sought to determine how patient age, patient disposition, and physician religiousness affect physician recommendations in the context of advanced illness. METHODS: A survey was mailed to a stratified random sample of US physicians, which included three vignettes depicting advanced illness scenarios: 1) cancer, 2) heart failure, and 3) dementia with acute infection...

REVIEW
Sebastiano Mercadante, Eduardo Bruera
AIM: The objective of this review was to assess the existent evidence for the use of methadone as first line therapy in cancer pain management. METHODS: A systematic literature search on MedLine, Embase databases was carried out from each data base, setting up the date to 30 August 2017 Studies were included if methadone was a first line drug as a step 3 of WHO analgesic ladder, or at low doses (step 2), if they were conducted in adult patients with cancer pain, if they contained outcomes on pain and opioid-related adverse effects...

CONTEXT: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive, incurable interstitial lung disease with heavy symptom burden and poor quality of life. The last year of life is characterized by increased acute care utilization and hospital deaths. Clinical guidelines recommend early integration of palliative care but is rarely implemented. In 2012, we reorganized our clinic into a multidisciplinary team comprising two pulmonologists (expertise in ILD and palliative respiratory care respectively), nurse, respiratory therapist, physiotherapist, and a dietitian...

CONTEXT: There has been a sustained debate in the medical literature over whether or not physicians should engage with patients' religious and spiritual concerns. OBJECTIVES: This study explores what physicians believe about the relative importance and appropriateness of engaging with patients' spiritual concerns and physicians' choices. METHODS: In 2010, a questionnaire was mailed to 2,016 U.S. physicians with survey items querying about the relative importance of addressing patients' spiritual concerns at the end of life and the appropriateness of interventions in addressing those concerns...

CONTEXT: The Minimal Clinically Important Difference (MCID) of the Multidimensional Fatigue Symptom Inventory-Short Form (MFSI-SF), a questionnaire that measures cancer-related fatigue (CRF), has not been established in patients with cancer. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to determine the MCID of the MFSI-SF. METHODS: Breast cancer patients completed the MFSI-SF and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30 (EORTC-QLQ-C30) pre-chemotherapy and at least three weeks later...

Shelli L Feder, Meredith Campbell Britton, Sarwat I Chaudhry
CONTEXT: The number of patients discharged from acute care hospitals to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) is rising. These patients have increasingly complex needs and many experience poor outcomes while under SNF care, including hospital readmissions. Patients' goals of care (GoC) are viewed as a factor contributing to unplanned hospital readmissions from SNFs. However, clinicians' perspectives of GoC for hospitalized patients discharged to SNFs are not well-described. OBJECTIVES: To explore how clinicians view GoC for hospitalized patients discharged to SNFs...

CONTEXT: Evidence for the association of hospice exposure with lower healthcare expenditures at end of life (EOL) remains inconclusive and neglects EOL care being concentrated in patients' last few months. OBJECTIVE: The association between hospice exposure and healthcare expenditures in cancer patients' last 1, 3, 6, and 12 months was evaluated. METHODS: In this population-based, retrospective cohort study, Taiwanese cancer decedents in 2001-2010 (N=195,228) were matched 1:1, with proportions of matched hospice users reaching 87...
