BACKGROUND: An important aim of palliative care is to ensure the highest possible quality of life (QoL) for the family members of patients. AIM: We aimed to determine the QoL of family members of hospitalized patients with end-stage disease, as well as differences in QoL based on socio-demographic characteristics and the patient's functional status, psychological distress, and QoL. METHODS: Study participants were 292 family members of terminally ill patients at University Hospital, Ostrava, Czech Republic...

We investigated use of the tunnelled catheter in a large palliative population with malignancy-associated ascites employing retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained patient database of tunnelled peritoneal catheter insertions for refractory malignancy-associated ascites or new rapidly accumulating ascites. We found that a 100 percent procedural success rate was achieved with 395 tunnelled catheters inserted in 386 patients. Catheters remained in situ for 66 days, on average. In a total of 22 cases (5...

AIM: There is a paucity of data on the provision of palliative care in the critical care settings of smaller community hospitals. This study aimed to identify the gaps that affect the provision of palliative care in a community critical care setting. SETTING: The study was set in a 10-bed, open intensive care unit and emergency department at a community hospital. METHODS: Mixed methods were used. Quantitative data included those drawn from databases and surveys; qualitative data included those collected from interviews, focus groups, and onsite walk-throughs and were analyzed with inductive coding techniques...

Current or former injection drug users with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are at high risk for pain, which adversely affects their quality of life and may increase their risk for illicit drug use or relapse. We explored associations between pain symptoms and substance use among injection-drug-using study participants with HIV who had histories of heroin use. Using generalized estimating equations and controlling for prior substance use, we found that pain in each six-month period was associated with the use of heroin and prescription opioids, but not the use of nonopioid drugs or alcohol...

Primary caregivers (PCGs) are closely involved in preparing meals and feeding patients who are at the end of life, yet their responses to patients' swallowing difficulties have not been extensively analyzed. This study aimed to reach an understanding of PCGs' beliefs, values, and responses to dysphagia and dietary modifications in the palliative care setting. A total of 14 PCGs were interviewed and asked to share their thoughts and feelings about patients' dysphagia symptoms and the diet changes resulting from these symptoms...

Existing quality-of-life instruments for Parkinson's disease (PD) may not fully assess quality of life (QoL) for people with PD in a holistic and multidimensional manner. This study examines the subscale structure, validity, and internal-consistency reliability of the McGill Quality of Life (MQoL) Questionnaire in a sample of people with PD. This cross-sectional study evaluates the MQoL-PD by using Cronbach's alpha and principal components analysis. A total of 81 consenting people with PD from a tertiary care outpatient clinic were studied...

Many attempts to define a good death have been recorded in the academic literature. In most of these attempts, the methods used have been surveys, interviews, and focus groups. These methods have yielded important information, but they have failed to provide an opportunity for public deliberation, whereby people engage collectively with an issue, consider it from all sides, and struggle to understand it. We believe that a well-orchestrated public deliberation could contribute to defining a good death. We gathered data from four deliberative forums implemented in Finland in November 2013...

BACKGROUND: One challenge for those who manage amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is to understand patients' needs. AIM: The aim of this study was to examine the needs of Singapore ALS patients from their perspective as well as that of their caregivers and healthcare professionals in order to develop a template for better services. METHODS: A cross-sectional qualitative study was conducted, with one-to-one interviews and focus group discussions...

Some guidelines and recommendations identify existential suffering as a potential refractory symptom for which continuous palliative sedation (CPS) can be administered under certain conditions. However, there has been little research on the characteristics of patients with existential suffering treated with CPS and the degree to which the preconditions are fulfilled. The aim of this study was to provide insight into this specific indication for CPS. Questionnaires were sent to nursing home physicians in The Netherlands, who described 314 patients...
