Family Caregiver

Family caregivers play a critical role in our health and long term care system by providing a significant proportion of the care for both the chronically ill and aging. A family caregiver is anyone who provides any type of physical and/or emotional care for an ill or disabled loved one at home. Rates of caregiving can vary somewhat by ethnicity. Duties of caregivers are usually full time and include, but are not limited to cooking, cleaning, bathing, medical care adherence monitoring, errand running  and other activities of daily living. While caregiving can be physically, psychologically, and economically stressful, critical supports can help to reduce the burden of family caregiving. Psychologists increase the ability of families to safely care for their loved ones at home and avoid or delay costly institutionalization.

Palliative Sedation

Palliative sedation is an effective, accepted symptom control strategy for patients who suffer with intractable symptoms at the end of life. Palliative sedation is the most widely used term, other names include terminal sedation, total sedation, or controlled sedation. All refer to the use of sedation to control refractory symptoms in patients near the end of life. Palliative sedation is ethically defensible when used after careful interdisciplinary evaluation and treatment of the patient, and when palliative treatments that are not intended to affect consciousness have failed or, in the judgment of the clinician, are very likely to fail,  where its use is not expected to shorten the patient's time to death, and only for the actual or expected duration of symptoms.

Palliative Care Medications

Palliative medications are one component of a 'whole-person' approach to supporting people with life-limiting and terminal illnesses. Medications may be needed to treat or prevent symptoms associated with the palliative diagnosis. Standard medications may be used differently in the palliative care setting, based on well established practices for which there are varying degrees of evidence. In a palliative approach to treatment, giving medications should be as simple and non-traumatic as possible, with the potential for them to be given at home.

Palliative Care Nursing

Palliative care nurses work with individuals and families facing a life limiting illness. Palliative care nurses work within the interdisciplinary team, but will often coordinate care in consultation with clients, their caregivers and other team members. The activity of nursing is a complex mix of many hands-on skills and personal qualities bound together into an eclectic discipline that is inherently difficult to define. The notion of professional caring, the building of therapeutic relationships and the practice of nursing as a regulated profession with definable standards include in providing palliative care to patients.

Hospice Care

Hospice care focuses on caring, not curing. Hospice is a special type of care in which medical, psychological, and spiritual support are provided to patients and their loved ones when therapies are no longer controlling the disease. The goal of the care is to help people who are dying have peace, comfort, and dignity. The caregivers try to control pain and other symptoms so a person can remain as alert and comfortable as possible. Hospice programs also provide services to support a patient's family.

Ethics in Palliative

The foundation of medical ethics is supported by six pillars as- Autonomy, Beneficence, Non-maleficence, Justice, Dignity, Truthfulness and honesty. All these together constitute the six values of medical ethics. Medical ethics is primarily a field of applied ethics, the study of moral values and judgments as they apply to medicine. It is intended to provide guidelines and codes for physicians as for their duty, responsibility and conduct and shares many principles with other health care ethics, such as nursing ethics and bioethics.

Palliative Care and Euthanasia

Preventing voluntary euthanasia is one of the goals of Palliative care. Voluntary Euthanasia or Assisted suicide legalization advocates and palliative care providers typically have an adversarial relationship to one another regarding the question of assisted death. Palliative care should be the focus of all government across the globe so that, terminally and chronically ill persons can be adequately catered for as they approach their end of life. If this is wholly embraced, the request for euthanasia and or assisted suicide will be condemned to the dustbin of history

Palliative Oncology

*Unofficial 2015 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2013 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2015 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X
