Steve Pantilat, MD, Palliative Care Part 4: Psychosocial Support
Remember that as the people approach end of life, this time is filled with sadness and grief about what is coming in the near future. Providing psychosocial support connects us to the humanism that brought physicians to medicine in the first place. There are 4 key areas to focus on with this support: non-abandonment, hope, bringing closure to important relationships, and spirituality. More on Dr. Pantilat: https://www.ucsfhealth.org/steve.pantilat UC San Francisco advances health through education, research, patient care and public service. With seven major sites in the San Francisco Bay Area and Fresno, the UCSF School of Medicine is dedicated to improving human health by accelerating scientific discovery and transforming medical education.

Metta Hospice Care - Programmes
Programmes & Services Set up in June 2000 to offer free home hospice care to the terminally ill of all ages and races, the Metta Hospice Care has since helped 1200 patients live with quality and dignity throughout the last phase of their lives. Funded in part by the Ministry of Health and National Council of Social Service, our services are delivered through an inter-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, spiritual advisors and a social worker-cum-counsellor. A member of the Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) and Asia Pacific Hospice Network, we take care of patients who are referred from medical institutions and general practitioners. Diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses such as cancer and end-stage renal failure, these patients have primarily ceased curative treatment and have a prognosis of one year or less to live. Through our domiciliary care, they continue to receive nursing aid, medical supervision and medications for pain and other symptoms in the comfort of their own homes. Palliative & Hospice Care Palliative and hospice care form the two main tenets of our services. While the former entails pain relief and management of other symptoms like nausea and fatigue, the latter tends to the physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual needs of patients and caregivers. Neither hastening nor postponing death, both culminate into a holistic approach that aims to alleviate suffering and maximise quality of life. Aligned to this goal is our comprehensive range of medical, nursing, social, emotional and spiritual support, which ensures that our patients undergo a smooth transition from acute care in hospitals to home care that is clean, safe and convenient. To facilitate the development of individualised care plans, their needs and conditions are first assessed to determine the most suitable type of care and equipment. The intensity of home visits and reliance on equipment are then paced according to the severity of their conditions during follow-up care. Besides administering medication, counselling and therapies, our medical personnel work with the patients' primary physicians to achieve total care management. Concomitantly, measures like teaching caregivers basic nursing routines and free equipment loans help to ensure the continuity of effective home care during intervals between visits. Support Services Believing that emotional and spiritual pain are as veritable as physical afflictions, we offer counselling services and spiritual support to both the patients and their families to help them cope with end-of-life issues, including grief. At the same time, spiritual advisors from various faiths are available to help them connect to their religions or draw strength from personal values. Additional care services as well as assistance in subsidy applications can also be arranged with medical institutions and social assistance providers.

Impact of the CFDT Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program: A Provider/Parent Panel
Parents who experienced the loss of their baby shortly after birth discuss the impact of the Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). In this panel discussion, families cared for by the program, housed in CHOP’s Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment, share their feelings about what it was like preparing to deliver their baby with a life-limiting fetal diagnosis. They talk about how a coordinated Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program helped them prepare for an anticipated perinatal loss, and how the medical, nursing and psychosocial services provided at Children’s Hospital supported them through an extremely difficult time. Specialists from the Hospital briefly discuss the different roles team members provide for the pregnant patient, her partner, and their family. The CFDT’s Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program focuses on supporting families expecting babies diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses from the point of diagnosis, throughout the pregnancy, at the time of delivery, and beyond the death of their baby. At CHOP, obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, nurses, chaplains, social workers, child life specialists and clinical psychologists are available to support families when coping with a fetal and/or neonatal death. Our Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program offers pregnancy options counseling, prenatal care services, guidance through the medical choices available at birth, palliative care birth planning, direction and access to community resources to help with the grieving process, coordination of spiritual support, sibling preparation, family memory-making opportunities, and more.

Palliative Care, a Different Voice in Healthcare: Timothy Ihrig at TEDxDesMoines
Healthcare expenditure is the biggest threat to America's economy, due to an aging population and a system in which physicians are often paid based on what they do to their patients, rather than fostering a patient's overall quality of life. Dr. Timothy Ihrig explains the benefits of palliative care that prioritizes a patient's personal values and navigates a serious illness from diagnosis to death with dignity and compassion. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

LIFE Before Death End of Life Nursing
DVD OUT NOW http://www.lifebeforedeath.com "End of Life Nursing" Short Film 29 of 50 in the LIFE Before Death documentary series about the global crisis in untreated pain and the dramatic life changing effect palliative care services can deliver to patients and their families around the world. In this Short Film we discover the crucial role nurses play in improving the lives of families and patients faced life-limiting illness. "Nurses are a crucial member of the team in providing good pain control and excellent palliative care," reflects Dr Judith Paice (USA). "Of course we don't look only at pain," continues Diane Lebeau RN (Canada). "We look at everything else that is around pain being the psychological aspect, the spiritual aspect, the emotions around what it is with the pain." "Nurses are at the bedside and so they can perform those crucial assessments that help us to know whether the patients condition is changing," reports Dr Paice. "They can help us understand the physiologic affects as well as the psychosocial issues that the patient may be experiencing." "Of course the pain is the first thing that we'll address because the patient will not be able to work on an emotional aspect if the pain is not well controlled," agrees Lebeau. "The nurse is often the individual that often gets to know the family and the loved ones and so they can help us understand the extent of the loved ones suffering and what needs they may have," observes Dr Paice. "Just looking after the patient may not be enough," reflects Ramdas G. RN (India). "We may also have to involve the family members too in this palliative care." "So in addition to the assessment nurses also deliver many of the therapies," continues Dr Paice. "The physician may prescribe an opioid, for example, to treat pain or dyspnea. But the nurse is the one actually making that decision about when to give that medicine." "The nurse is always carrying the plan. For sure, the physician and the team look at the plan together, but the nurse carries it. She brings it at the bedside," explains Lebeau. "So of course the nurse is the one who will be at the center of what's happening with a patient." Featuring: Professor Joan Marston (South Africa), Dr Judith Paice (USA), Diane Lebeau RN (Canada), Ramdas G. RN (India), Sandra (Australia). LIFE Before Death comprises 50 short films themed around pain control and end of life issues, releasing one a week for a year from May 2011. A feature film was released in early 2012 and is available at http://www.lifebeforedeath.com The project is presented by the Lien Foundation and produced by Moonshine Movies.

“Advance Care Planning: It’s How we Care for Each Other” - Louise Hanvey
Louise Hanvey, Director, Advance Care Planning in Canada, Canadian Hospice presented “Advance Care Planning: It’s How we Care for Each Other”, as part of the Join The Movement to End Brain Tumours - National Conference, in Toronto, on Saturday, October 22, 2016. Advance care planning is the process of reflecting on values, beliefs and wishes for future health and personal care, and having conversations. Advance care planning includes deciding on a substitute decision maker - or the person who would speak on your behalf if you could not make your own decisions about your medical and personal care. This presentation explores why advance care planning is important for everyone - but particularly for those who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour. The presentation walks through the steps of advance care planning with practical suggestions about the kinds of questions that need to be considered and how to have the conversations.
