  • [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.

  • [Title] Advance care planning discussions with geriatric patients.
  • BACKGROUND: Advance care planning discussions are conversations with patients about future treatment to ensure that the patients' wishes are known if their decision-making capacity fails.
  • We wished to test systematic advance care planning discussions on an acute geriatric ward and to investigate how patients felt about such discussions.
  • The majority took a very positive view of an advance care planning discussion of this type.
  • INTERPRETATION: The patients were overwhelmingly positive with regard to advance care planning discussions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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] 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] 'Occupational Activities' associated with 'Advance Care Planning': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Occupational Activity' for 'advance care planning'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Occupational Activity'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • 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.
  • Results: Group one includes 16 publications, and group two 2468 publications.

  • [Title] Insight into advance care planning for patients on dialysis.
  • CONTEXT: Advance care planning is not included in regular clinical care for patients on dialysis.
  • Insight into life-sustaining treatment preferences and communication about end-of-life care is necessary to develop interventions to improve advance care planning for patients on dialysis.
  • OBJECTIVES: This cross-sectional observational study aimed to understand the preferences for life-sustaining treatments of outpatients on dialysis and to study the quality of patient-physician communication about end-of-life care and barriers and facilitators to this communication.
  • METHODS: The following outcomes were assessed in 80 clinically stable dialysis patients: demographics, clinical characteristics, life-sustaining treatment preferences (cardiopulmonary resuscitation and mechanical ventilation, and Willingness to Accept Life-Sustaining Treatment instrument), preference for site of death, quality of communication (Quality of Communication Questionnaire), and barriers and facilitators to communication about end-of-life care (Barriers and Facilitators Questionnaire).
  • Quality of the patient-physician communication about end-of-life care was rated poor.
  • This study identified several barriers and facilitators to end-of-life care communication.
  • Quality of patient-physician communication about end-of-life care needs to improve.
  • Barriers and facilitators to communication about end-of-life care provide direction for future interventions to facilitate advance care planning for patients on dialysis.

  • Advance care planning (ACP) is a process being championed within health and social care, particularly since the publication of the UK Department of Health's 2008 End of Life Care Strategy.
  • However, its implementation in dementia care is yet to be fully realised and can pose significant ethical and legal dilemmas for the generic and specialist workforce, the patient themselves, and their family or loved ones.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • [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] Advance care planning for patients with COPD: past, present and future.
  • OBJECTIVE: To discuss the importance, current status and directions for improvement of advance care planning and communication about end-of-life care for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
  • METHODS: Narrative review of the currently available literature regarding advance care planning and communication about end-of-life care in COPD.
  • RESULTS: Advance care planning, including patient-clinician communication about end-of-life care, can improve outcomes for patients and their families and may be particularly important for patients with COPD.
  • Despite these advantages, advance care planning and conversations about end-of-life care in current practice are limited and their quality is often poor.
  • CONCLUSION: Advance care planning can improve outcomes for patients and their relatives.
  • Recent studies provide directions for how to facilitate advance care planning for patients with COPD.
  • PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Advance care planning ought to be part of care for patients with advanced COPD.
  • Future studies should focus on interventions to facilitate advance care planning in patients with COPD with the goal of improving the quality of end-of-life care.

  • [Title] Advance care planning in CKD/ESRD: an evolving process.
  • Advance care planning was historically considered to be simply the completion of a proxy (health care surrogate designation) or instruction (living will) directive that resulted from a conversation between a patient and his or her physician.
  • We now know that advance care planning is a much more comprehensive and dynamic patient-centered process used by patients and families to strengthen relationships, achieve control over medical care, prepare for death, and clarify goals of care.
  • Some advance directives, notably designated health care proxy documents, remain appropriate expressions of advance care planning.
  • Moreover, although physician orders, such as do-not-resuscitate orders and Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment, may not be strictly defined as advance directives, their completion, when appropriate, is an integral component of advance care planning.
  • The changing health circumstances and illness trajectory characteristic of ESRD mandate that advance care planning discussions adapt to a patient's situation and therefore must be readdressed at appropriate times and intervals.
  • The options of withholding and withdrawing dialysis add ESRD-specific issues to advance care planning in this population and are events each nephrologist will at some time confront.
  • Advance care planning is important throughout the spectrum of ESRD and is a part of nephrology practice that can be rewarding to nephrologists and beneficial to patients and their families.

  • [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.

  • [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] 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.

  • [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.
