  • [Title] Advance care planning.
  • BACKGROUND: Good Medical Practice: A Code of Conduct for Doctors in Australia states that in caring for patients towards the end of their life, good medical practice involves facilitating advance care planning.
  • OBJECTIVE: This article discusses the role of advance care planning in end-of-life care, with an emphasis on the ethical and legal framework for advance care directives.
  • DISCUSSION: There has been an increased focus on advanced care planning and advance care directives in Australia, partly driven by the ageing population and technological advances, as well as the principle of patient-centred care.
  • General practitioners have an important role in initiating and facilitating advance care planning.

  • [Title] The need for safeguards in advance care planning.
  • The recent uproar about Medicare "death panels" draws attention to public and professional concerns that advance care planning might restrict access to desired life-sustaining care.
  • The primary goal of advance care planning is to promote the autonomy of a decisionally incapacitated patient when choices about life-sustaining treatments are encountered, but the safety of this procedure has not received deserved scrutiny.
  • Patients often do not understand their decisions or they may change their mind without changing their advance care directives.
  • A few recent reports show encouraging outcomes from advance care planning, but most studies indicate that the procedure is ineffective in protecting patients from unwanted treatments and may even undermine autonomy by leading to choices that do not reflect patient values, goals, and preferences.
  • Safeguards for advance care planning should be put in place, such as encouraging physicians to err on the side of preserving life when advance care directives are unclear, requiring a trained advisor to review non-emergent patient choices to limit life-sustaining treatment, training of clinicians in conducting such conversations, and structured discussion formats that first address values and goals rather than particular life-sustaining procedures.
  • Key targets for research include: how to improve completion rates for person wanting advance care directives, especially among minorities; more effective and standardized approaches to advance care planning discussions, including how best to present prognostic information to patients; methods for training clinicians and others to assist patients in this process; and systems for assuring that directives are available and up-to-date.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] What influences individuals to engage in advance care planning?
  • BACKGROUND: Advance care planning (ACP) is an underutilized process that involves thinking about what kind of life-prolonging medical care one would want should the need arise, identifying a spokesperson, and then communicating these wishes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The motivations for undertaking ACP that we have identified offer health care providers insight into effective strategies for facilitating the process of ACP with their patients.

  • [Title] Perspectives of healthy elders on advance care planning.
  • PURPOSE: To present a qualitative study that explored the perspectives of healthy elders on advance care planning.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The data reveal five major themes: advance care planning is strongly influenced by concern for others; elders assume that preferences are known to their trusted friends, family, and providers, even in the absence of explicit communication with these people; elders value a healthcare system that supports provider time, focus, and continuity; being "known" to a provider is critical to comfort that advance care planning preferences will be respected; and elders are generally ready and eager to discuss advance care planning.
  • Additional findings include: elders are better prepared for the event of death than the dying process; lawyers and financial planners play a prominent role in guiding elders through end-of-life decisions; and elders believe that the optimal time for advance care planning discussion is during periods of relative wellness.
  • IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: Enhanced understanding of the patient perspective is key to incorporating advance care planning for healthy elders in the ideal milieu of primary care.

  • [Title] International perspectives on advance care planning.
  • Fraser Health Authority in British Columbia, Canada serves 1.5 million people, spanning over 12 communities with 26 000 employees and has been a provincial and national leader in advance care planning (ACP) for the past 7 years.
  • Our goal is to continue to promote and enhance ACP across our health system by promoting conversations with patients and families and improving communication and documentation of decision making in all programs of Fraser Health.
  • This presentation will assist learners to gain further understanding of the importance of systematic engagement in order to embed and sustain ACP in large healthcare organizations and to enhance standardized practices for quality patient-centred care at end of life.
  • Input from program areas such Aboriginal Health, Home Health, Primary Care and Medicine as well as discipline areas such as respiratory therapists, social workers and hospitalists have proven invaluable to help shape policy, develop tools and resources and to address educational needs.

  • [Title] Documentation of advance care planning for community-dwelling elders.
  • BACKGROUND: Advance planning for end-of-life care has gained acceptance, but actual end-of-life care is often incongruent with patients' previously stated goals.
  • We assessed the flow of advance care planning information from patients to medical records in a community sample of older adults to better understand why advance care planning is not more successful.
  • METHODS: Our study used structured interview and medical record data from community-dwelling older patients in two previous studies: Assessing Care of Vulnerable Elders (ACOVE)-1 (245 patients age > or = 65 years and screened for high risk of death/functional decline in 1998-1999) and ACOVE-2 (566 patients age > or = 75 who screened positive for falls/mobility disorders, incontinence, and/or dementia in 2002-2003).
  • We compared interview data on patients' preferences, advance directives, and surrogate decision-makers with findings from the medical record.
  • RESULTS: In ACOVE-1, 38% of surveyed patients had thought about limiting the aggressiveness of medical care; 24% of surveyed patients stated that they had spoken to their doctor about this.
  • Among patients who reported that they had completed an advance directive and had given it to their health-care provider, 15% (ACOVE-1) and 47% (ACOVE-2) had advance directive information in the medical record.
  • Among patients who had not completed an advance directive but had given surrogate decision-maker information to their provider, 0% (ACOVE-1) and 16% (ACOVE-2) had documentation of a surrogate decision-maker in the medical record.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Community-dwelling elders' preferences for end-of-life care are not consistent with documentation in their medical records.
  • Electronic health records and standardized data collection for end-of-life care could begin to ameliorate this problem.

  • [Title] Advance care planning in COPD.
  • The review aims to discuss current concepts in advance care planning (ACP) for patients with COPD, and to provide a narrative review of recent trends in ACP and end-of-life care for patients with COPD.
  • ACP, which involves patient-clinician communication about end-of-life care, can improve outcomes for patients and their families, and may be especially relevant for patients with COPD.
  • It is important for clinicians to understand patients' values and preferences for life-sustaining treatments as well for their site of terminal care.
  • Unfortunately, discussions about ACP and end-of-life care in current practice are scarce, and their quality is often poor.
  • ACP should be implemented alongside curative-restorative care for patients with advanced COPD.
  • The disease course of COPD is such that there will rarely be a clear transition point predicting the timing of the need for initiation of end-of-life care.
  • Future studies should focus on interventions that facilitate concurrent ACP and prepare patients for making in-the-moment decisions, with the goal of improving the quality of end-of-life care.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The need for safeguards in advance care planning.
  • The recent uproar about Medicare "death panels" draws attention to public and professional concerns that advance care planning might restrict access to desired life-sustaining care.
  • The primary goal of advance care planning is to promote the autonomy of a decisionally-incapacitated patient when choices about life-sustaining treatments are encountered.
  • Unfortunately, patients often do not understand their decisions or may change their mind without changing their advance care directives.
  • A few recent reports show encouraging outcomes from advance care planning, but the bulk of studies indicate that the procedure is ineffective in protecting patients from unwanted treatments and may undermine autonomy by leading to choices that do not reflect patient wishes.
  • Safeguards for advance care planning should be put in place, such as requiring clinicians familiar with the patient's prognosis and treatment options to participate in the formulation of directives, assuring regular review of decisions, allowing physicians to err on the side of preserving life when uncertain about the application of an advance care directive, specifying the role of the health care proxy in interpreting or even overriding directives, requiring specialised counselling for non-emergent choices to limit life-sustaining treatment, training and certification of clinicians for conducting such conversations, and use of structured formats, clinical guidelines, and system support aides that promote quality and safety.

  • [Title] It's my life: influences on advance care planning conversations.
  • The findings indicate participants:(a) Can feel processed through an end of life check list to make decisions where they are given the decisions and then asked to think rather than think and decide. (b) Do not always discuss issues with those closest to them because of a desire to protect them. (c) Are not always willing to make advance care planning decisions not because they are unaware of their illness but because they do not feel resilient to face the emotional impact of their choices as well as being within the advance care planning process of;.
  • CONCLUSION: Health care professionals should value the consideration and discussion part of advance care planning as the vehicle and support mechanism for decision making outcomes.
  • A reductionist, tick box approach to advance care planning can enable participants to feel processed through rather than participating in advance care planning discussions.

  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.

  • [Title] Advance care planning: challenges and approaches for pediatricians.
  • BACKGROUND: There is increasing recognition of the value of advance care planning for children with life-limiting conditions.
  • OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to review advance care planning for children with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions (LTLLCs) in our local area.
  • Study subjects were from two National Health Service (NHS) Trusts in Bristol in the United Kingdom.
  • Measurements included quantitative and qualitative review of advance care planning in relation to standards set by The Association for Children's Palliative Care (ACT).
  • In 25% of cases there was no evidence of an advance care plan, and the content and accessibility of those that did exist was variable.
  • Forty-five percent of families were not offered a choice with regard to location of care (LOC) in the last months of life and 50% were not offered a choice about location of death (LOD).
  • CONCLUSIONS: We hope that acknowledgement of some of the challenges, alongside recognition of the clear benefits, of planning will help pediatricians to deliver this important area of care.

  • The model(1) responds to the challenges of implementing guidance on advance care planning using levels of education need, and the EoLC workforce levels.
  • Guidance alone is not able to embed the advance care planning process in practice.
  • A blended learning approach includes face to face learning, e-learning using the National e-learning modules and the East of England EoLC care home education project The model(1) is part of implementation guidance, including: communication, information transfer, documentation, process and a competency based learning framework, so that learning is part of a wider learning experience in End of Life Care.

  • [Title] Advance care planning for people living with dementia.
  • The prevalence of dementia is increasing, however it is only recently that dementia has been recognised as a terminal disease where end-of-life care needs to be discussed and planned with the patient and their family.
  • Early diagnosis of dementia enables the person with dementia and their family to discuss the future, including plans for end-of-life care such as Advance Care Planning (ACP).
  • However, discussions regarding end-of-life care are not routine practice for people with dementia and their families.

  • [Title] An unequivocal good? Acknowledging the complexities of advance care planning.
  • Over the past few decades advance care planning (ACP) has become the subject of debate, research and legislation in many countries.
  • Encouraging people to express their preference for treatment in advance, ideally in written form, seems a natural way to identify what someone might have wanted when they can no longer participate in decision-making.
  • For example, ACP is now actively encouraged in Australian federal and state government policies and the Victorian Government has recently published a practical ACP strategy for Victorian health services (2014-2018).
  • However, advance care plan is ethically complex and the introduction of the Victorian health services strategy provides an opportunity to reflect on this complexity, particularly on the benefits and risks of ACP.

  • [Title] Evolution of advance care planning in Australia - launching the new international advance care planning and end of life care society.
  • Although there were small areas of interest in advance care planning (ACP) and the ability to refuse treatment in Australia as early as 1987, the implementation of and research in, ACP began in 2002 with Australian Federal government and Victorian State government funding of the Respecting Patient Choices Program.
  • This program has been established in many hospitals, health services and aged care homes throughout Australia and has been adapted successfully to local conditions and legislation.
  • With the growing public and political interest in ACP a number of new initiatives have been undertaken including:▸ new supportive legislation in several states and territories ▸ a National government sponsored review of existing legislation with recommendations for achieving national uniformity ▸ recommendations in the Australian National Health & Hospitals Reform Commission Report that ACP should be available in all aged care homes.
  • The holding of the Inaugural International ACP conference in Melbourne in April 2010 galvanised interest and support for ACP in Australia and raised awareness internationally, leading to the establishment of International Society of Advance Care Planning and End of Life Care -ACPEL Society with hundreds of members joining from around the world.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Advance care planning for dementia patients.
  • BACKGROUND: There is currently some debate about the extent to which advance decisions, advance statements of wishes and preferences, or other forms of advanced care planning should be followed when they are undertaken by a patient who subsequently loses capacity.
  • Two main arguments commonly advanced to support the claim that these forms of advanced planning are problematic are: (a) the person who loses capacity is not the same person as the one who had capacity; and (b) the person retains certain autonomy in addition to welfare interests and so cannot be bound by priorly taken decisions or expressed wishes.
  • Nonetheless, this has implications for how we ought to draw up an advance decision that is to be legally binding, and for whether we ought to consider alternative forms of advance care planning.
  • METHODS: Conceptual analysis of arguments (a) and (b), with some reference to the relevance of a recent English case to advance statements of wishes and preferences.
  • RESULTS: The paper concludes that argument (a) can be rejected, but that argument (b) is sound and has implications for the forms of advance care planning we ought to adopt in the case of dementia patients, and for the shape that current advance decisions now take.
  • CONCLUSION: The form of proxy decision making proposed in the Nuffield Dementia Report 2009 is the best way of solving the dilemma and might be preferable to legally binding advance decisions.

  • [Title] Advance care planning in paediatrics: the care providers' perspective.
  • BACKGROUND: Research on advance care planning (ACP) has focused on adults, but ACP is also being practiced in pediatrics (pACP).
  • Health care providers may have to deal with unknown diagnoses and prognoses, patients without decision making capacity and a complex social network.
  • METHODS: We conducted 17 semi-structured interviews with experts in the care of severely ill children and adolescents.
  • RESULTS: Pediatric ACP concerns all care providers.
  • Particularly important issues are: An interdisciplinary care conference, repeated discussions with the parents, a continuous point of contact as well as emergency planning.
  • Advance directives (AD) should be individualised, validated by the treating physician (shared decision making) and be available.
  • There is a need for pACP, but the perspectives differ between care providers.
  • CONCLUSION: This study helps in understanding the needs of the different care providers as well as barriers to pACP.

  • BACKGROUND: Advance care planning has become government policy in Scotland and England, and many health professionals are being trained to do it for all patients with advanced life-limiting disease.
  • FINDINGS: We introduced structured ACP into routine out-patient practice and the use of an aide memoire was positively received by health professionals working in the clinic.
  • Patients with advanced COPD focused on planning to remain well and rarely had considered end of life planning.
  • Patients with advanced COPD rarely consider eolc planning preferring instead to focus on living with and managing their illness and this may prove to be a significant barrier to the facilitation of ACP.

  • To introduce advance care planning policy into Japan, in consideration for law and ethic related to domestic end-of-life care, we compared law and ethic of Victoria, Australia with Japan.
  • Whereas, in Japan, there are general guideline for end-of-life care and one of common law, but no law and guideline to mention concrete procedure.

  • [Title] Shared decision making and advance care planning-underpinnings, similarities and differences.
  • There are two movements, each rooted in bioethics and evidence-based medicine, that focus on quite similar aims yet are not fully aligned and integrated in the clinical care of dying patients: The first, "advance care planning" focusses on future decisions when one becomes incapable of decision making, and the second, "shared decision making" has led to decision aids designed on the basis of empirical evidence to solicit and support patients' choices and decisions.
  • The aim of our study, beginning in 2012, is to develop, implement and test a complex intervention (continuous multi-professional development - CPD program) for improving patients' preparation for and participation in end of life decisions including both strategies ACP and SDM/DA on end of life issues in an acute care hospital setting.
  • The SDM philosophy relies more on giving tailored statistical information on distinct measures whereas ACP relies more on defining broader goals of care, which might indicate not only different contents but also differing concepts of autonomy.
  • For example, both investigate impact on satisfaction with care and economy.
  • SDM focuses more on knowledge and decisional conflict whereas ACP focuses on numbers of advance directives (ADs), and decisions made according to wishes.

  • [Title] Using stages of planning to improve the success of advance care planning.
  • What we mean by 'advance directives', in the United States has been largely determined by the creation of laws and regulations.
  • The unintended consequence of this approach has been the creation of advance directives as one-time, singular events intended to be effective for all individuals regardless of age, stage of health, or changing goals and values.
  • Advance care planning (ACP) as a process of communication has emerged as an alternative to this failed approach.
  • Rather, ACP is more effective when it is focused on the individual's stage of health and the realistic decisions that may be needed for that stage.
  • This staged approach to planning includes person-centred interactions and shared decision-making with professionals who are well trained in a standardized approach.
  • In this presentation the speaker will discuss the advantages of one approach to the stages of planning, described as First (ie, basic ACP for the healthy adult), Next (ie, disease-specific ACP for progressive chronic illness with complications), and Last Steps (ie, those expected to die in the next 12 months).
  • This stage of planning approach makes it possible to identify the content of planning relevant for the person at each stage, when to do it, how to document it and how to train professionals to competently assist in the planning process.
  • Quality improvement activities can be specifically designed to evaluate if the goals of planning are achieved.
  • This staged approach to planning is individualized and realistic.
  • It builds care planning into the routines of care, enhances person-centred decision-making and provides a system for reviewing and updating plans over time.

  • [Title] Introducing advance care planning in community palliative care.
  • AIM: To design and introduce for all patients referred to a hospice community team an intervention that facilitates advance care planning (ACP), and to evaluate the feasibility and utility of this innovation.
  • A fear of dying and the patient perception of who should undertake ACP emerged as important patient barriers while there are specific challenges to care planning in patients with organ failure and the frail elderly with cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Facilitated ACP with prompts proved less useful for initiating conversation for CNS in palliative care.
  • However the introduction of structured documentation improved the recording and communication of care preferences.
