[Palliative care in patients without cancer: Impact of the end-of-life care team].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Palliative care improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing problems associated with life-threatening illnesses by promoting the prevention and relief of suffering. Palliative care in Japan has been developed mainly for cancer patients. At the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology, an end-of-life care team (EOLCT) has been developed to promote palliative care for patients without cancer. In the first 6 months of its operation, 109 requests were received by the team, 40% of which were for patients without cancer or related disease, including dementia, frailty due to advanced age, chronic respiratory failure, chronic heart failure, and intractable neurologic diseases. The main purpose of the EOLCT is to alleviate suffering. The relevant activities of the team include the use of opioids, providing family care, and giving support in decision-making (advance care planning) regarding withholding; enforcement; and withdrawal of mechanical ventilators, gastric feeding tubes, and artificial alimentation. The EOLCT is also involved in ongoing discussions of ethical problems. The team is actively engaged in the activities of the Japanese Geriatric Society and contributes to the development of decision-making guidelines for end-of-life by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. The EOLCT can be helpful in promoting palliative care for patients with diseases other than cancer. The team offers support during times of difficulty and decision-making.

[Comprehensive geriatric assessment and cancer care-choice of treatment and in-home palliative care executed by using advance care planning].

Hide Abstract
Choice of treatment and in-home palliative care are important for the cancer care of the elderly. In recent years, comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA), which has been developed as a multidimensional evaluation method for the elderly, has been attracting attention for cancer care as well. CGA can be a common language for the choice of treatment and in-home palliative care of elderly cancer patients. Also, advance care planning (ACP), is important as a process that supports decision making. In the future, better choices of treatment will become available, and in-home palliative care will be improved by carrying out cancer care using CGA, while continuously carrying out ACP as an organization, realizing a high quality of life (QOL) of the elderly.

[Community coordination of dental care needs in a home medical care support ward and at home].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the current statuses and problems of dental home care patients by surveying the oral care status and needs of patients in the home medical care support ward at the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology. Patients that required continuous oral management even after discharge from the hospital were referred to local dental clinics to receive home dental care. We investigated the suitability and problems associated with such care, and identified the dental care needs of home patients and the status of local care coordination, including those in hospitals.

Hide Abstract
The National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology in Japan implemented a home medical care support system for aged patients in April 2009. In this study, we report a case of terminal care system where a medical care intervention was carried out by a close coordination of visiting nurses and other staffs with a "at-home terminal care" brochure on hand, and we discussed how this system was brought forward satisfactory and how it affected this culture.

[Role of home medical care support system in aged cancer patients symptom relief and regional alliances].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of home medical care support system to relieve the symptom and regional alliances for elderly cancer patients. We investigated clinical parameters to study the features of this system. The home medical care support system is designed for patients who are B75-year-old with decrease in activities of daily living and severe dementia. The support system plays a significant role in patients with impaired oral ingestion, dyspnea, delirium, and a poor general status.

Screening for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) carriage on admission to a geriatric hospital.
Arch Gerontol Geriatr
PUBLISHED: 10-16-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Our objective is to identify risk factors for carriage of MRSA on admission to a geriatric hospital where MRSA is endemic. A prospective screening for MRSA carriage was conducted by swabbing anterior nares and anal skin for 6 weeks. One hundred and thirty-eight patients aged over 65 were enrolled after obtaining their informed consent. Swabs of anterior nares and anal skin of patients were submitted for culture for MRSA. The demographic, administrative, and clinical data for each participant were recorded, and their association with MRSA carriage was determined by stepwise regression analysis. MRSA was recovered from 11 patients (11/138 patients, 8.0%), and from anal skin in 8 of them. Without screening of anal skin, 5 out of 11 carriers had been missed. Multivariate analysis revealed that hypoalbuminemia (adjusted risk ratio, RR=6.39, 95% confidence interval, CI=1.08-37.84) and bedridden status (RR=8.26, CI=1.04-65.31) were independent risk factors. Screening of elderly patients for gastrointestinal colonization on admission had implications for early detection of the reservoir of MRSA. Systematic selective screening for MRSA carriage targeting high-risk patients with hypoalbuminemia or bedridden status would be useful for infection control of this resistant organism.

[Usefulness of support from end-of-life care teams in difficult decision-making].
Gan To Kagaku Ryoho
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
It is unclear how hospitals should support a patients decision to return home to die. Thus, we retrospectively examined the usefulness of support from an End-Of-Life Care Team in such difficult decision making. The subjects included non-cancer patients and the elderly. Our results suggest that the burden of making difficult decisions decreases with support from End- Of-Life Care Teams.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
