  • Possible reasons for the upward trend in the use of aggressive procedures, note the authors, include not only technological advancements and the increased number of available ICU beds, but also late referral to hospice or hospital based palliative care for patients admitted due to disease progression. (
  • Challenges to timely palliative/hospice care referral of COPD patients include a lack of end-of-life communication, prognostic difficulty, diverse patient characteristics and a lack of resources, the authors note. (
  • Limitations to their analysis noted by the authors include their inability to assess whether those patients who received palliative care consultations would choose home hospice care and whether temporal trends were influenced by the recent Medicare billing code changes that allow clinicians to bill for advance care planning discussions. (
  • According to the authors of an editorial accompanying the report, while the increase in the rate of palliative care consultations for dying COPD patients found in this study may seem encouraging, it is important to keep in mind that the presence of palliative care teams in US hospitals also increased during the study period. (
