Diagnosing dying: an integrative literature review - BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care

Background To ensure patients and families receive appropriate end-of-life care pathways and guidelines aim to inform clinical decision making. Ensuring appropriate outcomes through the use of these decision aids is dependent on timely use. Diagnosing dying is a complex clinical decision, and most of the available practice checklists relate to cancer. There is a need to review evidence to establish diagnostic indicators that death is imminent on the basis of need rather than a cancer diagnosis.

The use of volunteers in community palliative care services can extend the range of activities offered to support people who are terminally ill. The types of training and support for volunteers are likely to affect their effectiveness and influence the quality of care provided to people requiring palliative care and their families. Training and support may also be costly for palliative care organisations.

Laxatives for the management of constipation in people receiving palliative care | Cochrane

People with an incurable illness may receive palliative care, which involves making the person as comfortable as possible by controlling pain and other distressing symptoms. People receiving palliative care commonly experience constipation. This is as a result of the use of medicines (e.g. morphine) for pain control, as well as disease, dietary and mobility factors. There is a wide range of laxatives available. The aim of this review was to determine what we know about the effectiveness of laxatives for the management of constipation in people receiving palliative care.
