BACKGROUND: Advance care planning (ACP) is well recognised as an important component of palliative care. However, there is still a need to explore ways in which it can become a part of routine practice, ensuring a timely and person-centred discussion. OBJECTIVES: To explore patients newly diagnosed with advanced lung cancer and their family members' experiences of engaging in a person-centred and structured ACP discussion facilitated by palliative care nurses in an outpatient oncology clinic at the University Hospital of Iceland...

AIM: This study aimed to explore palliative and hospice care with Native American elders and tribal health educators on a Northern Plains reservation in the US. METHODS: Using a community-based participatory approach, participants discussed the cultural acceptability of palliative and hospice care in their tribal community...

BACKGROUND: Residential care homes (RCHs) are increasingly becoming a common place of death for older people. AIM: The aim of this study was to describe family members' experiences of care of the dying in RCHs where the Liverpool care pathway for the dying patient was used. METHODS: This study had a descriptive qualitative study design. Fifteen (n=15) individual interviews were analysed using qualitative content analysis. RESULTS: The analysis resulted in three themes: being confident in a familiar and warm atmosphere, being involved vs not being involved in end-of-life (EoL) care, and being consoled by witnessing the health professional's endeavour to relieve suffering...

BACKGROUND: Undergraduate nursing students encounter patients at the end of life during their clinical training. They need to confront dying and death under supportive circumstances in order to be prepared for similar situations in their future career. AIM: To explore undergraduate nursing students' descriptions of caring situations with patients at the end of life during supervised clinical training. METHODS: A qualitative study using the critical incident technique was chosen...

Despite UK national guidance on care after death, it is clear that the bereaved family can experience distress while waiting for the patient's death to be verified. This distress can escalate if there is a delay in verification. Anecdotally, such delays particularly occur out of hours and in community settings. Verification of death is a clinical task and an act of care whereby the identity of the person and death is confirmed. In addition, the subsequent providers of care to the deceased, such as families, mortuary teams, funeral directors and cremation services, have their health and safety protected by the provision of pertinent patient-specific information, for instance, infection risk and implantable devices, within the bounds of confidentiality...

BACKGROUND: Goal setting is recognised as an important way of supporting people to live as actively as possible until death. However, there is little agreement about how goal setting should be handled or delivered by health professionals in everyday practice. AIM: To investigate health-care practitioners' understanding and practice of patient-centred goal setting in a hospice. METHODS: A comparative case study of 10 healthcare practitioners in one hospice...

S H Cedar, Melanie White, Anita Atwal
Involving patients in their own care is associated with improved health outcomes. Complementary therapies are popular among patients and enable them to receive the palliative care they want and need. However, the range of complementary therapy services available to patients need to be evaluated for efficacy. This study evaluated the complementary therapy services offered at one cancer outpatient clinic in the UK, with the aim of evaluating the effect of complementary therapies on patient wellbeing and to systematise concerns and categories of wellbeing in order to improve service provision...

BACKGROUND: Asking patients with palliative care needs about their end-of-life (EoL) preferences is widely acknowledged as an important aspect of EoL care. However, the issue of how to ask patients these questions has not been fully explored. Most prior studies in this area do not differentiate between patients' pragmatic preferences and ideal preferences, and between preferences concerning place of care (PoC) and place of death (PoD). AIM: The aim of this study was to examine possible differences between pragmatic and ideal preferences of terminally ill patients, as well as differences between asking patients about preferences concerning PoC and PoD...

AIM: To understand the barriers to and facilitators of ACP in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. METHODS: This qualitative study used interpretive description methodology. The researchers conducted audio-recorded semi-structured interviews with participants...

BACKGROUND: Several instruments are available to assess knowledge about hospice care, but none specifically address knowledge about home hospice for persons with Alzheimer's disease (AD). AIM: To develop and validate the Alzheimer's Disease Home Hospice Knowledge Scale (AD-HHK-S). METHODS: A total of 107 Israeli family caregivers of persons with dementia (mean age=71.2; 73% female) participated in the study. RESULTS: The AD-HHK-S included 28 true/false items assessing 3 areas of knowledge: knowledge about hospice, knowledge about home hospice, and knowledge about home hospice for AD...

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often live with unmet palliative needs and low quality of life, although several guidelines recommend that those with COPD should be offered early and integrated palliative care. However, none of the guidelines describe how these recommendations can be operationalised and the current literature offers little information about experiences with developing and implementing new palliative care services. This article offers insight into the experience of developing and implementing a new palliative outpatient structure for patients with severe COPD...
