Rieko Kishi Fukuzawa, Kazuko Takenaga Kondo
The relatively newly-developed profession of birth doulas, who accompany perinatal women and their families during the birth process, has been in existence since the 1990s. End-of-life (EoL) doulas are another emerging profession in developed Western countries. Doulas provide non-medical support for both childbearing women and people at the EoL, as well as their families. Although birth and death would appear to be opposites, they share common characteristics and challenges, such as tending to be treated in medicalised care settings, and that they both concern vulnerable parties...

End-of-life (EoL) care is increasingly provided by nurses outside of traditional hospice environments, yet many general nurses have limited education in EoL care. This article describes the development and evolution of an EOL care course in a baccalaureate nursing program, and the resources and strategies the faculty used to facilitate student engagement and learning. The original EoL course was then eliminated and replaced by the inclusion of EOL care education within existing courses. Faculty drew on the experience gained and lessons learned over several years to identify essential content from the course and include it in the new curriculum, to be integrated into existing courses and levels...

BACKGROUND: Advance care planning (ACP) is defined in a variety of ways, although it is widely understood as a process undertaken by patients, when they have capacity, to define and communicate their treatment preferences for future care. Few studies have explored the meaning and importance patients place on their ability to participate in directing their medical care. AIM: This study aimed to explore how cancer patients and their family members value autonomy at the end of life (EoL) and understand how this may impact on the way they develop and act on EoL decisions and planning...

AIM: This paper reports on a quality-improvement project to develop nursing documentation that reflects holistic care within a specialist palliative centre. BACKGROUND: The World Health Organization definition of palliative care includes impeccable assessment and management of pain and other symptoms. However, existing nursing documentation focuses mainly on the management of physical symptoms, with other aspects of nursing less frequently documented. METHODS: Supported by a project team and expert panel, cycles of review, action and reflection were used to develop a new palliative nursing documentation...

BACKGROUND: Informal carers (carers) support palliative patients to live at home. Most palliative patients require bladder and bowel care (B&BC) at some point, but there is limited evidence about carers providing B&BC and how best to support them. AIM: To explore carers' experiences of providing B&BC to life-limited young adults. METHODS: Interpretative phenomenological analysis of five interviews with purposively selected carers. RESULTS: One overarching theme, 'It is what it is', and three superordinate themes ('Whatever my daughter needs', 'Mum knows best', and 'Coping with caring') emerged...

BACKGROUND: Worldwide, end-of-life care is coming under increasing scrutiny as nurses struggle to balance cultural norms and legal requirements with the desires of patients and families. The purpose of this descriptive pilot study was to examine and describe nurses' attitudes when caring for dying patients in India, and whether participation in an educational conference, which included two scenario-based, low-fidelity simulations increased knowledge of end-of-life care. METHOD: Participants' attitudes were measured with the 30-item Frommelt Attitudes Toward Care of the Dying (FATCOD-B) scale...

BACKGROUND: Advance care planning (ACP) is a critical component of quality end-of-life care. Little is known regarding the cultural influences on health professionals' attitudes toward the discussion of ACP in China. OBJECTIVE: To better understand attitudes toward ACP among Chinese healthcare professionals in China and the influence of cultural factors such as filial piety, or xiĆ o. METHODS: A mixed methods study was used. This study reports the results of a descriptive cross-sectional survey of physicians, nurses and social workers with experience in palliative and end-of-life care...

Speech and language therapists (SLTs) provide intervention for communication and swallowing to patients with life-limiting conditions, such as dementia and head and neck cancer. The role of the SLT in palliative care is difficult to define. Much is known about the clinical aspects of this role; however, little is known about the core values, beliefs and expectations of SLTs working in this sector, particularly with regard to their role in supporting patients' communication. Through a series of semi-structured interviews and a follow-up focus group, this report aimed to form a picture of the experiences and views of SLTs about their communication role in palliative care...

BACKGROUND: Concerns have been raised over the practice of transferring nursing home residents to hospital at their end of life. OBJECTIVE: To examine the family and facility factors that may influence the decision to transfer nursing home residents to hospital in the last month of life. RESEARCH DESIGN: Secondary data analysis includes a sample of 119 bereaved family members from 21 nursing homes located in Central Canada. METHOD: A binary logistic regression analysis was conducted to explore the predictors for hospital transfers...

BACKGROUND: Clinical supervision (CS) has been around since the early 1990s in the UK and has been endorsed by government and professional bodies. Levels of engagement range from 18% to 85%. AIM: To investigate what influences palliative care nurses in their choice to engage in or decline clinical supervision. METHOD: A qualitative study was undertaken in an inpatient hospice in England and employed two focus groups to compare the views of participants and non-participants in CS...

Major neuro-cognitive disorders are life-limiting illnesses. However, unlike other life-limiting illnesses, the disease trajectory is often long, protracted and unpredictable. Prognostication of end of life can be problematic and access to specialist palliative care services, including hospice, are limited, variable and inequitable, resulting in negative experiences at this time. Major neuro-cognitive disorders will be discussed initially in broad terms, considering the most common types and symptoms. Palliative and end-of-life care, including legal and ethical issues, are addressed and awareness raised of different types of major neuro-cognitive disorders, common symptoms and common nursing problems associated with major neuro-cognitive disorders at end of life...

David Smith, Sarah Brown
Societies throughout the world are ageing and the proportion of people over 85 years of age is increasingly rapidly. In many countries a significant number of frail older people live in nursing care homes and will develop palliative care needs as they approach the end of their lives. In the United Kingdom around one fifth of those who die each year do so in a care home. Many of these will be cared for by generalist nurses and doctors without specific skills and knowledge in end-of-life care. Following a one-year pilot of the introduction of a nursing home facilitator post to introduce the principles of a palliative care approach into three nursing care homes for older people, the number of residents dying in hospital reduced by 25%...
