AIM: To establish whether respite care addresses the needs of palliative care service users and carers. BACKGROUND: Respite care is often described in UK policy and guidance as a key need to providing support for this group and yet little is known about it and there is a lack of research to support its efficacy. DESIGN: The approach was qualitative and the methodology was interpretive. The method used was constructivist grounded theory. METHODS: Data collection was carried out by unstructured informal interview with three couples and two bereaved carers who had experienced hospice respite care...

BACKGROUND: In the UK 15.8% of people aged 85 years and over live in a care home or long-stay hospital setting. With the projection of an ageing population it is realistic to expect that the number of people both living and dying in all care homes will increase. This article describes the implementation of an end-of-life care programme to empower staff to meet their resident's end-of-life care needs. METHODS: To implement an end-of-life care programme, namely the 'Steps to Success' programme, in residential care homes...

Professional leadership has been highlighted as an important part of successful intervention delivery. The aim of this study is to explore the narratives of nurses involved in leading a group intervention for family caregivers in palliative care. Nurses were interviewed about their experiences as group leaders in a psycho-educational group intervention, which was delivered at 10 specialised palliative home care settings, with the help of an intervention manual. Data were analysed with interpretive descriptive methodology...

Eleanor Wilson, Jane Seymour
In the UK there has been a widespread introduction of 'anticipatory prescribing' in community based palliative care. This involves general practitioners (GPs) writing prescriptions in anticipation of them being needed and has been encouraged to try to minimise the risk of patients suffering uncontrolled symptoms and distress; a key reason why terminally ill patients are admitted to hospital in contradiction of most people's preferences. This paper presents the findings from an ethnographic study of healthcare professionals across four care homes and four community sites in two regions (East Midlands and Lancashire/South Cumbria) of the UK...

AIM: Over 60% of Japanese people hope to die at home; hence, assisting clients in achieving this outcome is an important responsibility of home care providers. This study investigated the effects of nurses' relational coordination with physicians on clients' place of death in home visiting nursing (HVN) agencies. METHOD: Secondary analysis of a public survey conducted in 2015 by local governments in Kurume city, Fukuoka prefecture, Western Japan. Manager nurses from 17 HVN agencies provided data about themselves and their relational coordination with community physicians and 85 deceased clients...

BACKGROUND: Research regarding factors associated with nursing-initiated changes to bladder management at end-of-life is sparse. OBJECTIVES: To explore the process of Palliative Care Unit (PCU) nurses' approach to bladder management changes. METHODS: Nursing staff from one PCU in London, Canada were interviewed regarding bladder management care practices. A constructivist grounded theory was generated. RESULTS: Four interconnected themes emerged: humanity (compassionate support of patients); journey (making the most of a finite timeline); health condition (illness, functional decline); and context (orders, policies, supplies)...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the treatment of oedema in palliative care patients. AIM: To outline the assessment, goals, and interventions for patients with oedema. METHOD: A 6-month chart review of a specialist physiotherapy-led oedema service was carried out. RESULTS: Of the sample group (n=63), 28.6% of patients had lymphoedema, 15.9% had non-lymphatic oedema, 46% had mixed oedema and 9.8% had lymphorrhoea; 58 patients (92%) had cancer...

The reduction of inequalities in access to quality care has been a central tenet of UK health policy. Ethnic minorities may experience additional inequalities because of language and other cultural barriers. This article reports interviewer reflections of conducting interviews with South Asian kidney patients about their experiences of end-of-life care. It explores themes which emerged from the analysis of a focus group held with eight bilingual research interviewers. The relevance of these themes to understanding inequalities and access to end-of-life care is discussed; together with the potential for the research process to contribute to service improvement...

John Costello
In the palliative phase of a person's illness, the needs of the patient and informal caregivers are paramount. Caregivers often look to palliative care practitioners for support, guidance and emotional comfort. This article reviews the role of the informal caregiver at the end of life, summarising their concerns and needs. The paper also highlights caregiver difficulties in making the coping transition when the patient's medical condition becomes advanced and they require end-of-life care. The focus of the review is placed on discussions about Advanced Care Planning (ACP)...
