Caring for Patients With Severe and Enduring Eating Disorders (SEED): Certification, Harm Reduction, Palliative Care, and the Question of Futility.

Related Articles Caring for Patients With Severe and Enduring Eating Disorders (SEED): Certification, Harm Reduction, Palliative Care, and the Question of Futility. J Psychiatr Pract. 2016 Jul;22(4):313-20 Authors: Westmoreland P, Mehler PS Abstract Anorexia nervosa is a serious mental illness with a high mortality rate. The body image distortion inherent to this disorder and the impaired judgment and cognition due to malnutrition frequently result in patients refusing treatment.

Involuntary treatment may therefore be both life-saving and critical to…

Patient Reluctance to Discuss Pain: Understanding Stoicism, Stigma, and Other Contributing Factors.

Related Articles Patient Reluctance to Discuss Pain: Understanding Stoicism, Stigma, and Other Contributing Factors. J Soc Work End Life Palliat Care. 2017 Jan-Mar;13(1):27-43 Authors: Cagle J, Bunting M Abstract Some patients are hesitant to disclose when they are experiencing pain. However, the reasons for this, such as stoicism and concern about being a bother to others, are poorly understood.

[Refractory Dyspnea in Advanced COPD: Palliative Treatment with Opioids].

Related Articles [Refractory Dyspnea in Advanced COPD: Palliative Treatment with Opioids]. Pneumologie. 2019 Jul;73(7):430-438 Authors: Ficker JH, Brückl WM Abstract Dyspnea is a leading symptom in COPD. Bronchodilators (long acting anticholinergics and long acting beta agonists) are the mainstay of medical treatment. Non pharmacological therapies like pulmonary rehabilitation, long-term oxygen therapy or lung volume reduction can help to further improve dyspnea. Nevertheless, patients with advanced disease may develop refractory dyspnea. Randomized controlled trials demonstrated that the palliative treatment with low-dose systemic opioids is an effective treatment option in these patients. A low starting dose (e. g. 1.0 mg morphine, immediate release) is…
