Racial differences in patients' perceptions of debilitated health states. (1/540)

OBJECTIVE: To determine health utility scores for specific debilitated health states and to identify whether race or other demographic differences predict significant variation in these utility scores. DESIGN: Utility analysis. SETTING: A community hospital general internal medicine clinic, a private internal medicine practice, and a private pulmonary medicine practice. PARTICIPANTS: Sixty-four consecutive patients aged 50 to 75 years awaiting appointments. In order to participate, patients at the pulmonary clinic had to meet prespecified criteria of breathing impairment. MEASUREMENTS: Individuals' strength of preference concerning specific states of limited physical function as measured by the standard gamble technique. MAIN RESULTS: Mean utility scores used to quantitate limitations in physical function were extremely low. Using a scale for which 0 represented death and 1.0 represented normal health, limitation in activities of daily living was rated 0. 19 (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.13, 0.25), tolerance of only bed-to-chair ambulation 0.17 (95% CI 0.11, 0.23), and permanent nursing home placement 0.16 (95% CI 0.10, 0.22). Bivariate analysis identified female gender and African-American race as predictors of higher utility scores ( p +info)

Should doctors practise resuscitation skills on newly deceased patients? A survey of public opinion. (2/540)

Trainee doctors must acquire skills in resuscitation, but opportunities for learning on real patients are limited. One option is to practise these skills in newly deceased patients. We sought opinions from 400 multiethnic guests at an open-access dinner dance for members of a local community. The questionnaire could elicit the responses strongly agree, agree, unsure, disagree or strongly disagree. 332 (83%) guests responded. For non-invasive techniques, 32% of responders supported practice without consent, 74% with consent. Support diminished with increasing invasiveness of procedure. 91% of the sample were uncomfortable about the procedures, the commonest reason being 'respect for the body' (264/302). 86% of responders felt that practice should last for no more than 5 minutes. The most popular solutions were for people to carry a personal card giving consent (89%) and establishment of a central register of individuals consenting to be practised upon after death (79%).  (+info)

A staff dialogue on caring for a cancer patient who commits suicide: psychosocial issues faced by patients, their families, and caregivers. (3/540)

Shortly before his death in 1995, Kenneth B. Schwartz, a cancer patient at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), founded The Kenneth B. Schwartz Center at MGH. The Schwartz Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and advancing compassionate health care delivery which provides hope to the patient, support to caregivers, and encourages the healing process. The Center sponsors the Schwartz Center Rounds, a monthly multidisciplinary forum during which caregivers discuss a specific cancer patient, reflect on the important psychosocial issues faced by patients, their families, and their caregivers, and gain insight and support from their fellow staff members. The case presented was of a 31-year-old man who developed adenocarcinoma of the lung with painful bone metastases. His tumor was unresponsive to treatment and he subsequently committed suicide by shooting himself. The verbatim and subsequent discussion raised a number of issues. Staff were devastated by the violent way that he ended his life. They questioned whether more could have been done to prevent this outcome, yet acknowledged that it mirrored the way he had lived, and were able to discuss the values by which we live and die. Some, but not all, felt that the patient had the right to choose how and when to end his life.  (+info)

The ambiguity about death in Japan: an ethical implication for organ procurement. (4/540)

In the latter half of the twentieth century, developed countries of the world have made tremendous strides in organ donation and transplantation. However, in this area of medicine, Japan has been slow to follow. Japanese ethics, deeply rooted in religion and tradition, have affected their outlook on life and death. Because the Japanese have only recently started to acknowledge the concept of brain death, transplantation of major organs has been hindered in that country. Currently, there is a dual definition of death in Japan, intended to satisfy both sides of the issue. This interesting paradox, which still stands to be fully resolved, illustrates the contentious conflict between medical ethics and medical progress in Japan.  (+info)

Stability of attitudes regarding physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia among oncology patients, physicians, and the general public. (5/540)

PURPOSE: Attitudes regarding the ethics of physician-assisted suicide (PAS) and euthanasia have been examined in many cross-sectional studies. Stability of these attitudes has not been studied, and this is important in informing the dialog on PAS in this country. We evaluated the stability of attitudes regarding euthanasia and PAS among three cohorts. METHODS: Subjects included 593 respondents: 111 oncology patients, 324 oncologists, and 158 members of the general public. We conducted initial and follow-up interviews separated by 6 to 12 months by telephone, regarding acceptance of PAS and euthanasia in four different clinical vignettes. RESULTS: The proportion of respondents with stable responses to vignettes ranged from 69.2% to 94.8%. In comparison to patients and the general public, physicians had less stable responses concerning the PAS pain vignette (69.1% v 80.8%; P =.001) and more stable responses for all euthanasia vignettes (P <.001) except for pain. Over time, physicians were significantly more likely to change toward opposing PAS and euthanasia in all vignettes (P <.05). Characteristics previously associated with attitudes regarding PAS and euthanasia, such as Roman Catholic religion, were not predictive of stability. CONCLUSION: Up to one third of participants changed their attitudes regarding the ethical acceptability of PAS and euthanasia in their follow-up interview. This lack of consistency mandates careful interpretation of referendums and requests for physician-assisted suicide. Furthermore, in this study, we found that physicians are becoming increasingly opposed to PAS and euthanasia. The growing disparity between physicians and patients regarding the role of these practices is large enough to suggest possible conflicts in the delivery of end-of-life care.  (+info)

Autonomy, rationality and the wish to die. (6/540)

Although suicide has traditionally carried a negative sanction in Western societies, this is now being challenged, and while there remains substantial public concern surrounding youth and elder suicide, there is a paradoxical push to relax the prohibition under certain circumstances. Central to the arguments behind this are the principles of respect for autonomy and the importance of rationality. It is argued here that the concepts of rationality and autonomy, while valuable, are not strong enough to substantiate a categorical "right to suicide" and that the concepts of "understandability" and "respect" are more useful and able to provide the foundation for responding to a person expressing a wish to die. Roman suicide, sometimes held as an example of "rational suicide", illustrates the effects of culture, tradition and values on the attitudes to, and the practice of, suicide.  (+info)

Re-examining death: against a higher brain criterion. (7/540)

While there is increasing pressure on scarce health care resources, advances in medical science have blurred the boundary between life and death. Individuals can survive for decades without consciousness and individuals whose whole brains are dead can be supported for extended periods. One suggested response is to redefine death, justifying a higher brain criterion for death. This argument fails because it conflates two distinct notions about the demise of human beings--the one, biological and the other, ontological. Death is a biological phenomenon. This view entails the rejection of a higher brain criterion of death. Moreover, I claim that the justification of the whole brain (or brain stem) criterion of death is also cast into doubt by these advances in medical science. I proceed to argue that there is no need to redefine death in order to identify which treatments ought to be provided for the permanently and irreversibly unconscious. There are already clear treatment guidelines.  (+info)

Physicians' experiences with the Oregon Death with Dignity Act. (8/540)

BACKGROUND: Physician-assisted suicide was legalized in Oregon in October 1997. There are data on patients who have received prescriptions for lethal medications and died after taking the medications. There is little information, however, on physicians' experiences with requests for assistance with suicide. METHODS: Between February and August 1999, we mailed a questionnaire to physicians who were eligible to prescribe lethal medications under the Oregon Death with Dignity Act. RESULTS: Of 4053 eligible physicians, 2649 (65 percent) returned the survey. Of the respondents, 144 (5 percent) had received a total of 221 requests for prescriptions for lethal medications since October 1997. We received information on the outcome in 165 patients (complete information for 143 patients and partial for on an additional 22). The mean age of the patients was 68 years; 76 percent had an estimated life expectancy of less than six months. Thirty-five percent requested a prescription from another physician. Twenty-nine patients (18 percent) received prescriptions, and 17 (10 percent) died from administering the prescribed medication. Twenty percent of the patients had symptoms of depression; none of these patients received a prescription for a lethal medication. In the case of 68 patients, including 11 who received prescriptions and 8 who died by taking the prescribed medication, the physician implemented at least one substantive palliative intervention, such as control of pain or other symptoms, referral to a hospice program, a consultation, or a trial of antidepressant medication. Forty-six percent of the patients for whom substantive interventions were made changed their minds about assisted suicide, as compared with 15 percent of those for whom no substantive interventions were made (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Our data indicate that in Oregon, physicians grant about 1 in 6 requests for a prescription for a lethal medication and that 1 in 10 requests actually result in suicide. Substantive palliative interventions lead some--but not all--patients to change their minds about assisted suicide.  (+info)

RESPITE CARE SHARE:. In its initial ideation phase, J Johnston focused on providing a physical break from daily caregiving, via Airbnb rentals. This was based on her experience as a caregiver, and the need for mini-getaways, without going broke. Together with feedback from the OpenIDEO Community, the idea has now expanded to provide a broader definition of respite. Respite is defined as a space for a caregiver to rest and recoup from caregiving. We have added a diversity and inclusion lens to the issue, and is illustrated by our Persona, Jane Smith. (See attached figure for persona and user experience map.). Respite Care Share addresses the lack of personalized services offered to caregivers, and disparity in service offerings for those caring for children and parents. It addresses respite as that defined by the caregiver, including consistent and reliable caregiving options, be it a local community (e.g. faith-based) or network (e.g. veterans) one belongs to. It will be delivered in ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Potential for response bias in family surveys about end-of-life care in the ICU. AU - Kross, Erin K.. AU - Engelberg, Ruth A.. AU - Shannon, Sarah E.. AU - Curtis, J. Randall. PY - 2009/12/1. Y1 - 2009/12/1. N2 - Background: After-death surveys are an important source of information about the quality of end-of-life care, but response rates generally are low. Our goal was to understand the potential for nonresponse bias in survey studies of family members after a patients death in the hospital ICU by identifying differences in patient demographics and delivery of palliative care between patients whose families respond to a survey about end-of-life care and those whose families do not. Methods: We performed a cohort study of patients who died in the ICU at 14 hospitals. Surveys were mailed to family members 1 to 2 months after the patients death. Chart abstraction was completed on all patients, assessing demographic characteristics and previously validated indicators of ...

TO MARY WILLIS SHELBURNE: On how often ones inner state differs from external circumstances; and on the proper attitude toward death and dying.. 7 June 1959. I am sorry to hear that so many troubles crowd upon you but glad to hear that, by Gods grace, you are so untroubled. So often, whether for good or ill, ones inner state seems to have so little connection with the circumstances. I can now hardly bear to look back on the summer before last when Joy was apparently dying and I was often screaming with the pain of osteoporosis: yet at the time we were in reality far from unhappy. May the peace of God continue to infold you. . .. What a state we have got into when we cant say Ill be happy when God calls me without being afraid one will be thought morbid. After all, St. Paul said just the same [Philippians 1:21]. If we really believe what we say we believe-if we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the ...

Dying is so dreaded by most people that I wonder why we have so many expressions for it, like "Im dying for a cold drink," or "Id rather die than wear black shoes with a white belt!". With all the talk about dying, you might think it would be easy to discuss it with your doctor. However, many doctors hate to talk about end of life issues, so we often wait until, well, its time- like when the patient is hanging on by a thread. Also, in the outpatient setting, there just isnt that much time to talk about it. "So are you short of breath with that cough? Your blood pressure is a little high. Ever thought about end of life issues? Okay, heres your prescription, and be sure to quit smoking.". When I was a resident in LA, we were required to ask every single dingle patient about their advanced directives. Of course it was a selected population because you had to be pretty sick to be in the hospital. Still, you should have seen the faces on our really young patients.. "Doctor, is there something I ...

Provided the goal of the action is good, standard interpretations of conditions 2 and 3 rule out some actions as impermissible on the basis that they are means, rather than side effects, of what is done. But, if the goal of the action is itself good (condition 1), there is no other way of producing the good effect (condition 4), and there is a proportionate good reason for allowing the harmful effect (condition 5), what possible moral relevance could the distinction between means and side effects possibly have?. There are good patient-centred reasons why physicians should sometimes withhold life-sustaining treatment and/or administer a variety of drugs to seriously ill or dying patients, to ensure that these patient experience a good death. Surely, the answer to the question of whether, and how, they should ensure a good death, cannot just hinge on whether the patients death is (described as) a means to, or a side effect of, what they do. Rather, a morally defensible answer must depend on ...
Increasing levels of YLLs might reflect outcomes from conditions that required high levels of care but for which effective treatments remain elusive, potentially lifting costs to health systems. The Global Burden of Disease 2016 Study provided an assessment of cause-specific mortality for 264 causes in 195 locations from 1980 to 2016.. Deaths from noncommunicable diseases represented 72.3% of all deaths in 2016, with 19.3% of deaths in that year occurring from CMNN diseases.. In 2016, the three leading global causes of death in children under five were lower respiratory infections, neonatal preterm birth complications and neonatal encephalopathy because of birth asphyxia and trauma.. Between 1990 and 2016, a shift toward deaths at older ages occurred, with a 178% increase in deaths in ages 90 and 94 years and a 210% increase in deaths older than age 95 years.. The 10 leading causes by rates of age-standardized YLL declined from 2006 to 2016; the median annualized rate of change for all other ...
Now I dont profess any credentials or anything of the sort about philosophy but I do love to contemplate in my own way and spew my own or unbeknownst to me, quite possibly, rehashed ideas. Hegesias of Cyrene flipped "an unexamined life is not worth living" a Socratic maxim, on its head, with, "For the fool life is advantageous; for the wise it is indifferent." Leaving aphoristic contemplations that life is worth living only if you are not yet affirmed to be wise. Possibly meaning that to affirm a fully examined life one has therefore lost interest in life, hence, all rationality points toward death being no more less desirable than life. Yet only if one is a victim of his own beliefs in assuming a fully examined life by affirming he is "all wise" or whatever. Only those who know they are fools will value further wisdom and therefore life. A possible conclusion of both philosophers. This is where active (positive) nihilism comes in handy. Why? I have and will explain more in other areas on this ...

Research suggests health and social care professionals put a different emphasis on the meaning of dignity than their patients do. Although the UK has well-established local and national policies that champion the need to provide dignified care, breaches in dignity are still a problem with the NHS - and the study by Brunel University London has uncovered a potential gap between what patients expect and the focus of care professionals. When asked what dignified care meant to them, health care professionals referred to what dignity is, often as a conceptual idea, yet few made reference to how dignity is provided - including hands-on tasks such as washing, dressing and feeding. Specific, hands on care tasks are often the focus of reports of dignity breaches and particularly older patients have previously emphasised the importance of such tasks being provided in a dignified manner. A total of 33 health and social care professionals took part in one of eight focus groups. They described dignity as ...

Accusations that the professionals who are charged with conducting the safe, humane, legal and transparent care and custody of the detainees there perform in any other than the most professional of ways simply fails to hold up under investigative rigor. Further, we have years ago updated our laws, policies, procedures and training to ensure respect for the dignity of every detainee in our custody. We never forget that the physical well being of detainees is our primary responsibility, and their security is of vital importance to our mission.

Recently our intensive care unit was asked to organise two "emergency marriages" in the space of a week, reminding us that the most important wish of dying patients may be one we are ill prepared to ask about. Discussions about the wishes of patients and families regarding care at the end of life are commonplace in critical care, but the desire for marriage in a couple dealing with terminal illness is more common than we expect. Marriage may have the power to help meet some of the spiritual and emotional needs of dying patients and … ...

Grieving relatives can suffer from numerous consequences like anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, and prolonged grief. This study aims to assess the psychological consequences of grieving relatives after patients death in French palliative care units and their needs for support. This is a prospective observational multicenter mixed study. Relatives of adult patients with a neoplasia expected to be hospitalized more than 72 h in a palliative care unit for end-of-life issues will be included within 48 h after patient admission. End-of-life issues are defined by the physician at patient admission. Relatives who are not able to have a phone call at 6-months are excluded. The primary outcome is the incidence of prolonged grief reaction defined by an ICG (Inventory Complicate Grief) | 25 (0 best-76 worst) at 6 months after patient death. Prespecified secondary outcomes are the risk factors of prolonged grief, anxiety and depression symptoms between day 3 and day 5 and at 6
By Kathryn Brown, DePaul University College of Law. Medicare recently announced that starting in 2016 advanced care planning will be covered including discussions that physicians have with their patients regarding the kind of care the patient wants to receive at the end of life. Advanced-care planning, also known as end-of-life counseling, may be legal, medical, practical, psychological, or spiritual in nature. It involves discussing the choices about what kind of help a person will want and need, as well as whether to receive care at home or in an institutional setting. End-of-life counseling often includes making legal decision about wills, advanced directives, and durable powers of attorney. These conversations are vital because a "good death" can have different meanings for different people. Patients commonly hope to have their end-of-life wishes followed, whatever they are, and being treated with respect while dying are common hopes.. While drafting the Affordable Care Act legislation, ...

Introduction: Honest prognostication and information for patients are important parts of end-of-life care. This study examined whether an educational intervention could increase the proportion of patients who received information about the transition to end-of-life (ITEOL care).. Method: Two municipalities (in charge of nursing homes) and two hospitals were randomised to receive an interactive half-day course about ITEOL for physicians and nurses. The proportion of patients who received ITEOL was measured with data from the Swedish Register of Palliative Care (SRPC). Patients were only included if they died an expected death and maintained their ability to express their will until days or hours before their death. Four hospitals and four municipalities were assigned controls, matched by hospital size, population and proportion of patients receiving ITEOL at baseline.. Results: The proportion of patients in the intervention group who received ITEOL increased from 35.1% (during a 6-month period ...

So the following week he was supposed to see the GP anyway and that morning he was going to work at the bowls club so he drove down and I drove down too. I walked down to meet him afterwards and I got in the car with him and, my husband was the sort of person who could drive anything anywhere. We got in the car. We came out of the bowls club, bowls club car park and he turned the wrong way, which really threw him. Going round a roundabout, to sort himself out, he nearly hit the gate post. We, eventually, we got to the, we were near the complex where the doctors is and we missed that turning so he turned into the station car park, once again, narrowly missing the entrance. We came back along the road to the mini-roundabout and if I hadnt shouted he would have hit the person on the left hand side, who fair enough, should have slowed down, but wasnt giving way.

Subject: Letters to the Editor. Sir,. We must assume that Barbara Ellen (Who is to judge which lives are worth living?) is not stupid; in which case, her thoughtless piece on assisted suicide is a disgrace to a serious newspaper and certainly no useful contribution to what is an important, contemporary debate. Ms Ellen confuses the issue by using the term, euthanasia (literally "a good death") which, while technically encompassing both what we would call mercy killing and assisted suicide, is commonly understood to mean the former, the termination of the life of another, in extremis, but without consent. This is highly tendentious and pollutes the current debate, which is principally about peoples right to die when they choose, and to receive any necessary assistance to this end. To our knowledge, Terry Pratchett has never said or written anything that categorises the lives of others as "not worth living" and therefore eligible for termination. To associate his name with such a view is ...
I have had a number of near death experiences, and I actually fought with the spirit that was talking to me on my first near death experience and told him I would not go back to earth until I got some answers. He said "What do you want to know?" and I sat down and he answered questions for so long that it filled 7 large pages when I woke up and wrote it all down before I forgot it. I said "I cant even serve the Lord in that kind of body. What good am I down there? I cant even complete the reason I was put on earth." The spirit told me that pain and illness keep us away from rich, shallow, selfish people, keeps us out of the world, and makes us closer to God. The lessons we learn from being sick, from communing with God through prayer when we are suffering, are priceless, and cant be learned any other way. I wouldnt give up that knowledge or that feeling of love and security for anything. Life is just a short 3 hour movie compared to the eternity that was before earth life and the eternity ...

Hi, I recently lost my beloved dog Katie to cancer. She was the light of my life. She was doing well with seemingly no signs of cancer, and suddenly died of something else and they don t know what. Although I knew it was eventually coming, as she was older, I thought we had more time since she acted normal. I am left with a broken heart and lots of guilt because I didn t recognize how soon she would go. Maybe there was something I could have done? I know that people receive after-death communications from their loved ones, but how about pets? Has anyone ever seen their pet in a near ...

Dying patients often receive aggressive, expensive treatment that many would reject if they had a fuller understanding of their options, writes Dr. Angelo Volandes. A series of videos showing what end-of-life care really looks like has allowed patients at a handful of hospitals to make better informed choices. An intervention that first and foremost leads to better patient-centered health care - and also happens to lower costs - is a good thing, and more hospitals should embrace it.

The terms "bereavement" (or "bereaved"), "grief" and "mourning" are sometimes used interchangeably, and sometimes more widely than in the context of death. There are even other words used as synonyms for "death" or "dead", such as "passed" or "gone". For the purpose of this course we define some of these terms more specifically.. Loss: The absence of someone (or something) significant to a person. In the case of death the physical loss is permanent and irrevocable.. Bereavement: The state of being resulting from the loss of a loved one by death. When a loved one dies, one is bereaved (originally meant "deprived of").. Grief: The natural, personal, internal experience of bereavement. It is a traumatic occurrence experienced uniquely by each person.. Mourning: The external, outward expression of grief; also the process of or adapting to the new reality of living without the physical presence of the loved one.. The concepts of Grief and Mourning will each be discussed in future ...

Anotacija: MARGARET PABST BATTIN has established a reputation as one of the top philosophers working in bioethics today. This work is a sequel to Battins 1994 volume The Least Worst Death. The last ten years have seen fast-moving developments in end-of-life issues, from the legalization of physician-assisted suicide in Oregon and the Netherlands, to a furor over proposed restrictions of scheduled drugs used for causing death, and the development of "NuTech" methods of assistance in dying. Battins new collection covers a remarkably wide range of end-of-life topics, including suicide prevention, AIDS, suicide bombing, serpent-handling and other religious practices that pose a risk of death, genetic prognostication, suicide in old age, and global justice as it relates to the "duty to die." It also examines suicide, physician-assisted suicide, and euthanasia in both American and international contexts ...

The study aimed to find out to what degree suicidal thoughts and associated factors affect the suicide risk of advanced cancer patients. The frequency of suicidal thoughts among patients with cancer, especially in the advanced stages, is about 3 times greater than the adult average in South Korea. We recruited 457 participants with four types of cancers (colon, breast, cervical, and lung) using stratified sampling. Data collection was carried out through one-on-one interviews by trained nurses using a structured questionnaire. Advanced cancer patients with high, vs. low, levels of anxiety and pain had a higher suicide risk. In contrast, having ones spouse as the primary care provider was associated with a low suicide risk. Overall, the three factors of anxiety, pain, and the primary caregiver being ones spouse explained 17.2% of the variance in suicide risk. In conclusion, we derived influencing factors of suicide risk using a sample of patients with various types of advanced cancer. The results
Background: Debates over legalisation of physician-assisted suicide (PAS) or euthanasia often warn of a "slippery slope", predicting abuse of people in vulnerable groups. To assess this concern, the authors examined data from Oregon and the Netherlands, the two principal jurisdictions in which physician-assisted dying is legal and data have been collected over a substantial period.. Methods: The data from Oregon (where PAS, now called death under the Oregon Death with Dignity Act, is legal) comprised all annual and cumulative Department of Human Services reports 1998-2006 and three independent studies; the data from the Netherlands (where both PAS and euthanasia are now legal) comprised all four government-commissioned nationwide studies of end-of-life decision making (1990, 1995, 2001 and 2005) and specialised studies. Evidence of any disproportionate impact on 10 groups of potentially vulnerable patients was sought.. Results: Rates of assisted dying in Oregon and in the Netherlands showed no ...
