  • [Title] Advance care planning.
  • BACKGROUND: Good Medical Practice: A Code of Conduct for Doctors in Australia1 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.

  • 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] 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Introducing advance care planning in patients with advanced COPD.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Challenge of introducing advance care planning policy into Japan.
  • In Japan, living wills and advance directives are not commonly used, and there is no system or law to support the decision making of patients.
  • 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.
  • Via these activities, we want to help the globalisation of law and ethic in Japanese end-of-life care.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • African-Americans are less likely to write advance directives than white Americans.
  • Little is known about African-Americans' perceptions of planning for who would speak for them if they were unable to speak for themselves.
  • Health professionals' lack of knowledge about culture, ethnicity and/or religion is an obstacle to effective end-of-life care.
  • Study participants connected deterioration of the African-American community and family to ongoing discrimination and racism and cited this as contributing to the reluctance to write advance directives.
  • Another major finding is that choosing a proxy decision-maker requires "analysing personal relationships" and this can be painful and cause avoidance of addressing advance care planning.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The essentials of Advance Care Planning for end-of-life care for older people.
  • AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to investigate the phenomenon of Advance Care Planning and the use of Advance Care Directives in residential aged care facilities in Australia.
  • The objectives were to: investigate the implementation process of Advance Care Planning and the use of Advance Care Directives; investigate the outcomes of Advance Care Planning and experiences of people involved in Advance Care Planning and Advance Care Directives, including residents, families and nursing staff.
  • BACKGROUND: Benefits of Advance Care Planning for older residents are considerable given their degenerative health-breakdown and minimal chance of recovery.
  • To date, the use of Advance Care Planning and Advance Care Directives is limited and models of service delivery and processes are needed to enhance best practice with Advance Care Planning and positive outcomes for older Australians.
  • METHODS: The study conducted using multiple sources of evidence to enrich understanding of the phenomenon of Advance Care Planning.
  • The findings contribute to the limited knowledge of options currently available to older adults and their families in their decision-making about end-of-life care options.
  • PERMISSION TO CONDUCT THE STUDY: Prior to commencement of the data collection, ethics clearances from the University of Newcastle and the regional Area Health Service were achieved.
  • Permission to access the residential aged care facilities to undertake the study was obtained from the relevant residential aged care facility ethics committees or designated authorities.
  • RESULTS: The research identified the components and factors involved in the Advance Care Planning process and in attaining desired outcomes.
  • The conceptual framework developed elaborates how Advance Care Planning should be implemented and what may constitute successful implementation of Advance Care Planning in residential aged care facilities.
  • The four main elements (input, throughput, output, feedback), and 20 sub-elements were requisites for nurses to initiate and implement the Advance Care Planning.
  • CONCLUSION: The essential components for end-of-life care are identified in the implementation processes of Advance Care Planning in residential aged care facilities.
  • RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE: The case study identified four determinative requisites for successful implementation of Advance Care Planning in aged care facilities: the expert nurse, discussion, education and involvement of a multidisciplinary team.
  • Nurses should take these factors into account and use person-centred approach in formalised processes to encourage participation in plans for end-of-life care.

  • [Title] The legal status of guardians in advance care planning in Australia.
  • Australia, like many countries, is currently debating the optimum means of permitting individuals to engage in advance care planning within the confines of our respective legal systems.
  • This convention is an important consideration for our legal systems in developing means of validating people's advance care planning wishes.
  • It also brings with it great challenges for guardians as substitute decision makers when called upon to engage in advance care planning.
  • These themes will be the focus of a presentation outlining:▸ Current recognition status of advance care planning in Australian jurisdictions; ▸ The debate for the need for new legislation in Australia to give recognition and framework to advance care planning; ▸ The challenges facing appointed guardians called upon to engage in advance care planning, the limitations on their authority and the impact of the UN Convention; and ▸ The importance of developing uniform language when engaging in advance care planning to enhance legal validity and community acceptance - an examination of the current development of an Australian national framework for advance care planning.

  • National Healthcare Decisions Day is a nationwide campaign aimed at increasing advance care planning among adults throughout the country.
  • This broad-scale initiative simultaneously seeks to encourage Americans to express their wishes regarding future healthcare decision making, rally a national media campaign to promote the importance of planning in advance for care, and mobilize national, state, and community organizations to develop a wide range of educational activities.
  • The movement culminates in an annual day of multiple events throughout the country designed to inundate the public about advance care planning.
  • The national event originated from the successful statewide Virginia Advance Directives Day's inaugural event, conducted on April 18, 2006.

  • [Title] Managing in the trenches of consumer care: the challenges of understanding and initiating the advance care planning process.
  • To better understand how community-based long-term care providers define advance care planning and their role in the process, we conducted 8 focus groups with 62 care managers (social workers and registered nurses) providing care for Ohio's Medicaid waiver program.
  • Care managers shared that most consumers had little understanding of advance care planning.
  • The care managers defined it broadly, including legal documentation, social aspects, medical considerations, ongoing communication, and consumer education.
  • Care managers saw their roles as information providers, healthcare team members, and educators/coaches.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] It's just too hard! Australian health care practitioner perspectives on barriers to advance care planning.
  • This article presents findings from six focus groups with health care practitioners in an Australian hospital during 2010, which sought to elicit their perspectives on the barriers for people to plan their future health care should they become unwell.
  • Such knowledge is invaluable in overcoming the barriers associated with advance care planning and enhancing the uptake of advance directives and the appointment of an enduring power of attorney for people of all ages.
  • A person's rights to self-determination in health care, including decision making about their wishes for future care in the event they lose cognitive capacity, should not be overlooked against the backdrop of increasing pressure on health care systems.
  • Specifically, patient-centred barriers include lack of knowledge, accessibility concerns, the small 'window of opportunity' to discuss advance care planning, emotional reactions and avoidance when considering one's mortality, and demographic influences.
  • At the practitioner level, barriers relate to a lack of knowledge and uncertainty around advance care planning processes.
  • Systemically, legislative barriers (including a lack of a central registry and conflicting state legislation), procedural issues (particularly in relation to assessing cognitive capacity and making decisions ad hoc) and questions about delegation, roles and responsibilities further compound the barriers to advance care planning.

  • [Title] Advance care planning and surrogate health care decision making for older adults.
  • Older adults have a legally recognized right to determine and control the health care they receive and are legally presumed to possess the capacity necessary to make health care decisions.
  • However, older adults are at major risk for life-threatening and serious health problems leading to a loss of their capacity to make end-of-life and other health care decisions.
  • Advance care planning is a process that enables older adults to specify who they want to act as a surrogate decision maker and what decisions they want made for them in the event of incapacitation.
  • Geriatric nurses can play a significant role in promoting advance care planning and the use of legal tools for such planning.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Advance care planning in COPD: care versus "code status".
  • Responsibility for initiating advance care planning in COPD has usually fallen to the physicians.
  • The tendency has been to avoid this aspect of care, which can result in inadequate, rushed, reactive, crisis decision-making in the form of a "code status" discussion.
  • In this article, I review the relevant literature and report findings from a qualitative study designed within my doctoral program to explore the question, "What is required for meaningful and effective advance care planning in the context of advanced COPD?
  • " I describe the "collaborative care" approach to advance care planning I used with eight patients and carers living with advanced COPD.
  • Done well, it may reclaim the care element in advance care planning as it addresses barriers cited by physicians and patients/families.
