Advances in breast cancer management, including breast-conserving surgery, have resulted in an increase in the incidence of breast oedema. However, this is addressed by professionals less often than arm lymphoedema. Breast oedema results in significant physical and psychological morbidity, makes finding a comfortably fitting bra very difficult, and can act as a reminder of the initial breast cancer diagnosis. Psychological difficulties can be compounded by clinicians' failure to acknowledge the impact. Assessing and managing breast oedema requires a sensitive, skilled approach to ensure all the relevant issues are identified and addressed in a comprehensive care plan; taking time to listen to patients and acknowledging the impact can be very therapeutic...

Sue Barker, Mary Lynch, Jane Hopkinson
BACKGROUND: There are an increasing number of people living with dementia, as well as an expectation that care decisions are made collaboratively with those with the disease entering the end stage and their families. This has increased the burden on family carers. AIM: To explore the evidence on the decisional support needs of informal carers of people with end-stage dementia. DESIGN: A rapid scoping review was undertaken of peer-reviewed publications between 2000 and 2016, which included all health-care settings and the person's own home...

Anne M Finucane, Barbara Stevenson, Scott A Murray
BACKGROUND: Three archetypal trajectories of physical decline have been identified: a short period of rapid decline; long-term limitations with intermittent acute periods; and a prolonged gradual decline. An understanding of illness trajectories can help clarify the evolving needs of people with progressive conditions, and inform the development of palliative care services to meet their needs. Many frail older people live and die in care homes; the present study is the first to explore the illness trajectories of residents in care home settings...

AIM: To investigate older British South Asians' views on dying at acute hospitals. BACKGROUND: Older people, including those from ethnic minorities prefer 'home as a haven' for their last days of life; however, they are more likely to die in hospital. METHODS: Constructive grounded theory was used as a methodological approach that informed data collection to data analysis. Open meetings with 11 local South Asian community organisations enabled the researchers to recruit a total of 55 older South Asians in this study...

AIM: To analyse the use of e-Health technologies and mobile apps in palliative care (PC). METHODS: Search on PubMed, using 'telemedicine', 'ehealth', 'mobile health', 'telecare', 'health information systems' and 'palliative care'. Original Portuguese, Spanish, French and English papers were included. Google Play and App Store (iOS) were searched for mobile apps using 'palliative care', 'medical apps' and 'symptom management'. RESULTS: Twenty-five papers and forty mobile apps were analysed...

Michael J Tatterton
BACKGROUND: Non-medical prescribing is well established within the British health service, with increasing numbers of nurses practicing within children's hospices. AIM: To identify the context of non-medical prescribing in children's hospices in the UK, focusing on the perceived benefits and challenges. METHOD: Internet-based questionnaires were sent to 55 UK children's hospices, exploring the practice and context of prescribing. RESULTS: Of the 55 invited, 20 children's hospices responded to the questionnaire, 14 of which employed a total of 39 non-medical prescribers (NMPs)...

BACKGROUND: A movement is underway to promote a palliative approach to care in all contexts where people age and live with life-limiting conditions, including psychiatric settings. Forensic psychiatry nursing-a subfield of mental health nursing- focuses on individuals who are in conflict with the criminal justice system. We know little about the values of nurses working in forensic psychiatry, and how these values might influence a palliative approach to care for frail and aging patients...

Many individuals approaching the end of life with advanced dementia will live in a care or residential home. A wide spectrum of care is required and physical and safety needs may be prioritised above all other requirements. The Namaste Care Programme is designed to provide a holistic approach to meeting the needs of those with advanced dementia. This paper will outline the process of introducing this programme into a care home and its impact upon those who were involved. With a small sample of residents (n=9) the programme ran for 4 weeks...

Megan Lippe, Patricia Carter
BACKGROUND: Assessing characteristics in educational research is important to describe a student sample. However, consistency in measuring student characteristics is lacking, particularly in palliative and end-of-life (PEOL) care education research. METHODS: A literature review was conducted to determine the primary characteristics to assess in PEOL education research, the corresponding level of measurement and associated statistical analyses to perform with the data...

BACKGROUND: A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on death and dying was conducted to open the dialogue around death and dying. In one activity, participants were asked to engage with language and to think of alternative words (or euphemisms) that are used to describe death. AIM: To reflect from a nursing perspective how language enables and sometimes disguises important messages and conversations. METHODS: Four hundred and seventy one participants provided 3053 euphemisms...
