Drawings may play a crucial role in enhancing communication with this patient group. AIM: This study aimed to describe the pictures drawn by primary school learners in the children's palliative care programme in Bloemfontein, South Africa, and to evaluate whether drawings can be used to assess emotional wellbeing. METHODS: Drawings were assessed according to standardised human figure drawing guidelines and emotional indicator (EI) scales...

A two-year pilot project was developed to try to aid transitioning, which involved a day service with occasional overnight trips. AIM: To evaluate the pilot project. METHOD: Three focus groups made up of key stakeholders (young people, their parents and staff) were set up and analysed using an adopted thematic analysis framework...

Alex Daniels, Julia Downing
Education is integral to the development of children's palliative care (CPC) globally; thus, the International Children's Palliative Care Network (ICPCN) developed a training programme including face-to-face and e-learning programmes to increase access to CPC. A review of ICPCN's e-learning programmes was undertaken in April/May 2018. At the time of writing, there are seven courses available, with more scheduled to be released in the near future. All courses are available in English, with some available in other languages, including Mandarin, Czech and Dutch...

Subcutaneous administration of medications is a well-recognised route for delivering prescribed therapies, in particular analgesia for patients requiring palliative care. Technological advancements in infusion devices and dressings can result in well-tolerated and effective methods for continuous infusions for this group of individuals. This article discusses how technological developments are resulting in subcutaneous access devices that are easy to insert and can meet the needs of a growing patient population, as well as complying with the latest guidelines on sharps safety...

People living with long-term conditions are increasingly being cared for in care homes. Prognostication in this population is particularly challenging, and outcomes are often uncertain. This case history highlights some of the difficulties encountered when clinicians give a time-bound prognosis. It also illustrates how education programmes with high facilitation and ongoing support for care home staff can sustain practice development and enable staff to become highly skilled in working with uncertainty. Practice development programmes such as those based on the Six Steps to Success Programme for care homes give care home staff a framework within which to regularly review a resident's clinical status and the confidence to have the ongoing conversations that empower residents to contribute to decision making and focus on their own goals for care...

The number of people in need of palliative care is growing worldwide, particularly in the developing world. The World Health Organization recognises palliative care as a basic human right, but there are many challenges for delivering palliative care in low- and middle-income countries. In the African continent, the African Palliative Care Association (APCA) provides guidance for political advocacy for developing palliative care programmes and has developed the APCA Palliative Outcome Score (POS), an evidence-based tool for measuring outcomes of palliative care...

AIM: To illuminate experiences of living with life-threatening diseases as described in blogs and the experience of blogging about these matters. METHODS: A secondary analysis of 21 blogs was performed. RESULTS: It was difficult for bloggers to accept what they perceived to be the unacceptable aspects of having an life-threatening disease. They searched for hope and acceptance, and tried to manage their life. They felt strengthened by supportive encounters with health professionals, relatives, friends, and from their blogging...

Claude Chidiac
Although there are many differences regarding what palliative care is and to whom it should be delivered, its delivery and integration earlier in the disease trajectory have been advocated since 1990. More recently, there has been a heightened interest in early access to specialist palliative care through its provision earlier in the disease trajectory to improve patient and caregiver outcomes. This article explores the challenges in understanding and defining 'early' specialist palliative care. It also examines the available evidence on early specialist palliative care interventions and their association with patient and caregiver outcomes...
