Palliation by radiation is also our business !

Rev Med Liege. 2021 May;76(5-6):375-379.ABSTRACTRadiotherapy (RT), both with a curative and a palliative intent, is one of the cornerstones of oncological treatments. A variety of symptoms linked to cancer can be relieved with RT (such as pain, bleeding, compression exerted by a tumour lesion…). Very often, palliative RT is proposed when other medical treatments (painkillers, morphine…) are no longer efficient, or the patient does not tolerate them anymore. Palliative RT is an integral part of the global supportive oncological care. Indeed, patients’ wishes and prognosis are taken into account in each and every step of the treatment pathway. Every treatment…

Appropriate care at the end of life : insuring quality of life

Rev Med Liege. 2021 May;76(5-6):565-468.ABSTRACTProgress of medical knowledge pushed the limits of medicine. This raises major ethical issues. The Belgian lawmaker, concerned to ensure the observance of Human Rights, attempted to regulate some of these issues. It remains essential to listen to the patient and to respect his/her will. Likewise, defining therapeutic goals based on patient’s values and priorities is crucial until the end of patient’s life.PMID:34080399

Surgeons' Role in Local Palliation of Esophageal Cancer

Surg Clin North Am. 2021 Jun;101(3):489-497. doi: 10.1016/j.suc.2021.03.010.ABSTRACTEsophageal cancer commonly presents in advanced stage, and many patients will require palliative intervention. Endoscopic stenting remains an excellent first-line therapy; however, this should be discussed in a multidisciplinary setting, considering expectations for long-term survival.PMID:34048768 | DOI:10.1016/j.suc.2021.03.010

Care plus study: a multi-site implementation of early palliative care in routine practice to improve health outcomes and reduce hospital admissions for people with advanced cancer: a study protocol

BMC Health Serv Res. 2021 May 27;21(1):513. doi: 10.1186/s12913-021-06476-3.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Current international consensus is that ‘early’ referral to palliative care services improves cancer patient and family carer outcomes. In practice, however, these referrals are not routine. An approach which directly addresses identified barriers to early integration of palliative care is required. This protocol details a trial of a standardized model of early palliative care (Care Plus) introduced at key defined, disease-specific times or transition points in the illness for people with cancer. Introduced as a ‘whole of system’ practice change for identified advanced cancers, the key outcomes of interest are population…
