Preetha Krishnan
The purpose of this concept analysis paper is to delineate the meaning of good death in long term care (LTC) settings and examine its implications for nursing. The Walker and Avant (2011) method was chosen for this analysis. An in depth literature review identifies uses of the concept and determines the defining attributes of the good death. This paper also illustrates case presentations, antecedents, consequences, empirical referents and implications for clinical practice to clarify the concept of 'good death' in this population...

End-of-life care policy in the UK states that all people should identify their needs, priorities and preferences for end-of-life care in the form of advance care planning. Advance care planning in dementia is less well developed than in some other disease groups such as cancer and, arguably, may be more complex. A person with dementia may lose the capacity to make decisions associated with advance care planning early in the course of the disease, requiring more involvement of family carers. This study explores the 'lived' context to health care decision-making of dyads (the person with dementia and their carer) in respect of past, present and future healthcare decision-making...

AIM: To identify which of the examined agents or modalities were effective in the management of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). METHODS: PubMed, CINAHL, Medline, Science Direct and Ovid databases were used to search keywords. The literature search identified 59 potentially relevant studies; after removing duplicates and reviewing titles a total of 26 articles were examined. In the end, a total of 18 studies met the inclusion criteria. FINDINGS: The preliminary data for using lafutidine, acupuncture and sweet bee venom pharmacopuncture indicate that they may be useful in CIPN management...

AIM: The aim of this study was to explore nurses' experiences of caring for dying patients in Iran. METHODS: A phenomenological hermeneutic approach, influenced by the philosophy of Ricoeur, was used to analyse 10 oncology nurses' experiences of caring for dying persons...

Encarnación Perez-Bret, Rogelio Altisent, Javier Rocafort
AIM: To reflect on the definition of compassion and analyse the concepts encompassed by the term. BACKGROUND: A large number of authors have defined compassion, with certain nuances that differ from case to case. This raises the need for specificity in the definition of the term. DATA SOURCES: First, a systematic search was conducted of scientific databases. Second, a selection of experts were consulted and a request made to them for specific articles...

Margaret O'Connor, Stacey Palfreyman, Brian Le, Rosalind Lau
BACKGROUND: Nurse practitioners (NP) are relatively new in Australia with national registration achieved in 2010. Most NP-related literature is about establishing models and scope of practice. This paper reports on the establishment and 12-month evaluation of an NP model of care, between inpatient and community palliative care services, developed to coordinate client care between hospital and home. AIM: To enhance patient outcomes, in hospital or home; to enhance professional relationships between services and facilitate effective discharges and admissions between services...

REVIEW
Andy Parry, Ray Higginson, Aoife Gleeson
In the UK, chronic respiratory diseases cause 13% of adult disability. The major chronic respiratory disease is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a condition involving chronic airway inflammation that causes airflow obstruction and destruction of lung tissue. This leads to a progressive loss of respiratory membrane, which accounts for the clinical manifestation of COPD, which is difficulty maintaining sufficient gas exchange to meet metabolic demands. The primary cause is smoking, with the vast majority of COPD patients having a past or present history of smoking...

BACKGROUND: End-of-life care (EOLC) has historically been associated with cancer care. However, demographic changes indicate that future provision must also cater for other long term conditions (LTC). An EOLC-LTC service, delivered by palliative care nurses, is currently being piloted in one area in the East Midlands with patients with cardiac and respiratory disease. In order to inform future commissioning, it is important to gain the views and experiences of those involved with the service...
