Despite many efforts made by health organisations to deliver effective end-of-life care to patients with dementia, research indicates that palliative care is predominantly aimed at patients with terminal cancer, and that patients with dementia face challenges in accessing end-of-life care. This article explores the views of health professionals on providing palliative care to those patients diagnosed with dementia within the community setting. A systematic review of seven qualitative studies was performed t...
To develop a clinical protocol for the use of antipsychotic drugs in dementia patients with behavioral disturbances that includes prescribing and deprescribing criteria and to assess its applicability in longterm care institutions.

Recommendations of the European Association for Palliative Care have been proposed to strengthen the provision of palliative care and it is clear that people with dementia can benefit from palliative care, but no research so far addresses the beliefs of university students and professionals in the social, medical and other science fields in South East Europe regarding the need from palliative care. The objective of this study is to explore when students and professionals consider a person with dementia in n...
Despite the global consensus on the importance of palliative care for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), many patients in developing countries do not receive palliative care. Improving access to palliative care for MS requires a contextual understanding of how palliative care is perceived by patients and health professionals, the existing care pathways, and barriers to the provision of palliative care.

While the debate on diagnostic disclosure is often based on the premise that knowing about one's condition (the diagnosis and its prognosis) is essential in securing the patient's autonomy, many people with dementia in Korea are not told directly about their diagnosis. This article concerns the laborious and ethically contentious post-diagnostic living undertaken by the families of people with dementia, which I call "living with/out dementia." This is a paradoxical form of living that has emerged through th...
Deprescribing may be particularly relevant in older people with limited life expectancy. In order to effectively carry out deprescribing in this population, it is important to understand the perspectives of the full spectrum of health care professionals (HCPs) involved in the management of these patients' medication. Thus, we aimed to explore different HCPs' perspectives on deprescribing in older patients with limited life expectancy.
Respiratory Health Professionals (RHPs) with specialty training in the management of asthma and COPD, often care for patients with advanced respiratory disease, who have less access to palliative care than patients with similar disease burden. The aims of this study were to: () explore the current and desired roles of RHPs in terms of palliative care and () examine barriers to discussions with patients about palliative care.
The palliative care patient is definitely a unique type of patient. Due to the complexity of the symptoms requires a holistic therapeutic approach. Modern methods of treatment in palliative and hospice care underline an important role of physio, kinesiotherapy and pharmacological treatment coexistence. The rehabilitation reduces clinical symptoms, accompanying the basic disease and increases the quality of life of palliative patients and their families. It becomes an inseparable element of treatment, both i...
Palliative care, unlike hospice, can be utilized concurrently with disease-modifying or curative therapies. Some of the benefits of palliative care include improved quality of life, less end-of-life treatment, and decreased medical costs. Furthermore, palliative care can help guide treatment decisions to be in line with patients' physical, psychological, and spiritual needs. On the basis of these benefits, we advocate for palliative care involvement early in the course of advanced malignancy and other termi...
The majority of patients are diagnosed within a memory assessment service or a neurology clinic. However, early detection of a possible dementia is often done in a primary care setting. Dementia diagnosis has been seen by some as a 'tick-box exercise' but there are significant benefits to patients and their families when screening or testing for dementia is carried out early, especially in supporting the patients management of other comorbid or long-term conditions. Community nurses have a key role in ident...

Advanced liver disease is increasing in mortality and morbidity worldwide, as a result of growing alcohol consumption, obesity, and viral hepatitis infection.

The identification and referral of patients in need of palliative care should be improved. The French society for palliative support and care recommended to use the PALLIA-10 questionnaire and its score greater than 3 to refer patients to palliative care.

The earlier the diagnosis and the earlier treatment commences for dementia patients, the more likely the treatment will work. Music therapy can reach the part of the brain where we hold memories, which is why it is us...

The absence of reasons for limiting the patient's right to receive palliative care, as such a right is a fundamental human right, is substantiated. An analysis of the understanding of the legal construction of "palliative care" in the scientific literature, nationa...
Many clinical disciplines report high rates of burnout, which leads to low quality of care. Palliative care clinicians routinely manage patients with significant suffering, aiming to improve quality of life. As a major role of palliative care clinicians involves educating patients and caregivers regarding identifying priorities and balancing stress, we wondered how clinician self-management of burnout matches against the emotionally exhaustive nature of the work.
To explore the expressions of gratitude (EoG) received from patients and relatives and their influence on palliative care professionals (PCPs).
