Palliative Care

Transcript: Average daily costs to provide palliative care services could also be offset by inviting local groups, that offer volunteer services to nonprofit organizations. Volunteers could provide help with lawn maintenance, clean common areas, or stock supplies. Having volunteer assistance in the areas mentioned above, would save exponentially on cost because personnel would not have to be hired and paid to do those jobs. Palliative Care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is NOT physician assisted suicide. Many people might confuse palliative care and physician suicide but palliative care is simply taking care of dying patients and making them comfortable. The patients also receive emotional support. What is palliative care? Some patients think that their only option is to only live out the last little bit of their life in the hospital or in their home. This is why physicians should be required to tell thier patients all their options including palliative care. Cost-Benefit: Physicians will take seminars at their hospital and will be trained to talk to their patient about their options. They will talk to all terminally ill patients about palliative care and other options that they have. Problem: By: Kendal Lee Physicians would start being required to tell their patients about palliative care. The physician can build a trusting relationship with them so they will become more comfortable and open to their plan of care. Cost-Benefit: Someone will be hired to teach seminars at the hospital so that physicians can learn how to communicate with their patients better. The sliding-scale payment plan would allow anyone who is interested in receiving palliative care find the necessary financial assistance needed to ensure that care is received and not solely based on their ability to pay. Palliative Care Solution: Problem: Palliative care is not often brought up when people are dying due to their terminal illness. Many patients do not receive this information on palliative care simply because their physician is not comfortable talking to them about it.

Providing palliative treatment in Finland  In February 2016, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health assigned an expert working group a task of drafting a proposal for the provision of palliative treatment and end-of-life care to ensure equal access to palliative treatment and end-of-life care throughout the country The recommendation is based on a three-tier model for providing services at the 1.basic, 2.specialized and 3.intensive tertiary level.

The doctor and the treating team in charge of the care create an advanced care plan in mutual understanding with the patient, relatives, or legal representative. Such includes the alignments of care, required treatment methods and the restrictions of treatment. The care plan anticipates and outlines how to respond to the pain of the patient, other physical symptoms, as well as the mental, social, and spiritual needs. Care plan and care alignments The responsibility of realizing and updating the care plan belongs to the doctor responsible for the treatment. As the death approaches, the care plan is completed with the hospice care plan Palliative care is included in all stages of the disease. It is relevant, when care aimed to slow down the disease is no longer beneficial, and the disease causes pain or other physical, mental, or spiritual suffering. This is not abandoning care, but instead giving care with different aims. Care plan and care alignments Where is palliative care given at ?

Besides this, her work is also related with helping patients to control the way the are feeling and prepare them for bad news. SWOT HOPE H O P E PALLIATIVE CARE DOCTOR PALLIATIVE CARE DOCTOR CANCER The most common types of cancer in USA are breast cancer, lung cancer and prostate cancer. These types of cancer are the most dangerous ones and they are so difficult to cure if they are discovered in a later stage of cancer. EFFEECT IN HER PERSONAL LIFE She don't want to combine her personal life with her career because all the things and experiences that she have got can change or affect her family in a bad way. FAMILY FAMILY CAREER WORK STAGES OF CANCER The chances of cure cancer are higher if the cancer is in the stage 1 because the cancer is not so developed yet. The chances of cure cancer are pretty low if the cancer is in the stage 4 because the cancer is more developed. citation: STAGE 1 In stage 1 liver cancer, the single primary tumor (any size) has not grown into any blood vessels. The cancer has not spread to nearby lymph nodes or distant sites. STAGE 2 In stage 2, a single primary tumor (any size) has grown into the blood vessels, or there are several small tumors, all less than 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. The cancer has not spread to nearby lymph nodes or distant sites STAGE 3 In stages 3,there are several tumors and, at least, one tumor is growing into a branch of the portal vein or the hepatic vein. The liver cancer has not spread to nearby lymph nodes or distant sites. STAGE 4 Stage 4 liver cancer is the most advanced form of the disease. In stage 4, the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes and may have grown into nearby blood vessels or organs. Advanced liver cancer does not often metastasize (or travel to distant organs), but when it does, it is most likely to spread to the lungs and bones.

It is care for patients who find themselves in the space between curative and hospice treatment.
