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.

Symptoms are prevalent, such as pain, fatigue, dyspnea, depression, and insomnia -- even in diseases that we wouldn't consider to be painful (such as COPD and HF). People who have the latter conditions also have pain syndromes based on other health problems. Relief of symptoms is the #1 goal so that people can attend to the other areas of their life that are important. Physicians have to do a screen of all of the common symptoms, and then treat them aggressively.

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.

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.

Life asked Death, "Why do people love me but hate you?” Death responded, "Because you are a beautiful lie and I'm a painful truth.” The developing world represents over eighty percent of the world’s population. People living in these countries typically die younger, have less education and money. Asia is home to sixty percent of the world’s population. Many of these people live in developing economies. That means less physical and human resources for essential public services, including health. The burden of a disease like cancer in countries like Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh is immense. By the time it's diagnosed, eighty percent of cancers in the developing world are incurable. The result, a vast sea of human suffering. But there is a solution. A medical discipline whose focus is to treat pain and alleviate suffering in all its forms. That medical practice is Palliative Care. Services beginning to spread across the developing world have the potential to improve the lives of tens of millions of people every year. This is the story of a revolution in healthcare. Produced by Moonshine Movies. Presented by the Lien Collaborative for Palliative Care, an initiative of the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN) & Lien Foundation.

The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) just announced its new domestic drug control strategy. The policy puts the spotlight on the issue of abuse of prescription medicine in addition to illegal drug use. Here's a link to AP story http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5giCZp-qLVI65utd3SaaCyhkiEE1AD9FKS7EG0. Although chronic pain is the number-one cause of adult disability in the U.S. and the most common reason Americans access the healthcare system, many physicians don't prescribe opioids fearing abuse and dependency, reducing patients' access to pain control. Innovative solutions by communities, leaders and industry that include access to emerging therapies that can also help prevent abuse and misuse are critical to addressing this public health issue. www.painfoundation.org Memorial Sloan-Kettering (MSK) Cancer Center psychologist Dr. Steven Passik, PhD will provide perspective on the domestic issue of prescription drug abuse and the strategies needed to tackle this crisis. Fast Facts: · On average approximately 11.4 million persons (4.8%) aged 12 years or older have indicated nonmedical use of prescription pain relievers annually · Each year, drug abuse and addiction cost U.S. taxpayers nearly $534 billion in preventable health care, law enforcement, crime, and other costs The number of people abusing prescription medications nearly doubled between 1992 and 2003[i] · Pain relievers are responsible for 75% of all prescription abuse In the past year, rates of nonmedical use of pain relievers are higher than rates of use for most illicit drugs The new national drug policy is be a big step in tackling the prescription drug abuse crisis. Please note that we are working on behalf of King Pharmaceuticals, a responsible pain management company, however the interview will be unbranded. About Dr. Steven D. Passik, PhD Dr. Steven Passik, PhD, is an Associate Attending Psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and Assistant Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry at Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York.
