Evaluation of the Organization of Continuity of Care for Home Hospice Patients by Four Parisian Health Networks

2017-11-17 03:41:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In Paris, France, home hospice care for terminally ill patients is organized by four "palliative care networks". These networks are responsible for information sharing and coordination of all health care professionals working with the patient. Two different systems are in place to ensure continuity of care outside working hours, in such a setting. In the first system, palliative care specialists from the network are reachable over the phone 24/7 by the patient or its caregivers, whenever needed. In the second system, medical information about the patient, regularly updated by the network's medical team, is available to professionals via a secure website, so that in case the patient requires an urgent medical home visit outside working hours, the visiting physician has access to accurate information.

The study's goal is to compare patient's and caregiver's satisfaction between these two systems of continuity of care.

For that purpose, patients will be taken care of as usual by every palliative care network. In every instance where the patient or caregivers have reached out for medical help through the network's continuity of care system, the patient or caregiver will be called 5 days later by the investigation team to go through a satisfaction questionnaire (Likert scales)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

Cancers or tumors of the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE unspecified. For neoplasms of the maxilla, MAXILLARY NEOPLASMS is available and of the mandible, MANDIBULAR NEOPLASMS is available.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

Neoplasms located in the vasculature system, such as ARTERIES and VEINS. They are differentiated from neoplasms of vascular tissue (NEOPLASMS, VASCULAR TISSUE), such as ANGIOFIBROMA or HEMANGIOMA.

Neoplasms composed of cells from the deepest layer of the epidermis. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the stratum basale.
