This is enlightening. The end of life care measurement used in those 5 countries should be worked up so as to have a universal guideline that can be adapted. Nice job

There is much research on the positive impact of nature on health. This poster supports such impact. The West Palm Beach VA where I work has many outdoor garden spaces available to our Veterans and their families which positively impact their mental health during their last days of life. More research is needed! Thank you!

Is really important to support Nursing Home staff to identify the palliative care needs.
I found the project really interesting, expecially the multiprofessional support and the fixed date very useful.

Home care it´s the base of palliative care. very interesting…
Communication in palliative care should be done in a way that patient and their relatives do not perceive life threatening as an hopeless case but “live before you die” situation.

Very Interesting. We need to spend more time on integration in NH.
The staff is not prepared to cope with this rising of PC needs in Nursing Home. Burn Out and problems due to high staff turn over is really are common.
I think is important to spent time asking the team feelings and opinions, but It is hard to find time for staff supervision and team maintenance

Anxiety in Palliative Care Unit is not Only Seen in the Patient
1 Comment on "Anxiety in Palliative Care Unit is not Only Seen in the Patient"
Palliative Care is an important component in last steps of the care of most ICU patients. Most of the relatives of the patients are in anxiety about the care of their patients in palliative Care Units or at home. As the ICU bed sources are limited generally in every country, we have to be aware of the anxiety of the patient relatives for the appropriate usage of the ICU beds. This paper is a good study about this problem and may highlight the ICU physicians about the anxiety of the patient relatives.
Evaluation of Analgesic Utilisation and Pain Management in Ambulatory Cancer Patients in a Tertiary Oncology Center in Nigeria

I strongly agree with this conclusion, a better management of pain does not only alleviate pain and it’s symptoms but also promotes the lifestyle of the patient. I have accessed a cancer patient, before she was placed on morphine, she seemed tired of life and this was due to the pain and it’s psychological effects. I met the same patient a week later, after being placed on morphine, she sounded alive, happy and even more healthy. Pain management in cancer patient is important.
Thank you for enlightening me on the principles of PMI. From my clinical practice experience, we sometimes have patients with pain but decline pain medications due to one reason or the other, either as a result of cost, scarcity and break in supply chain of pain medications like Opoids or even because the pain doesn’t interfere with their daily life activities.
1. In these categories of patients, is their pain adequately or inadequately managed using PMI scores?
2. Does PMI take into consideration drugs prescribed recently but not yet taken by the patient?
This is enlightening.
