Considering the growing demand for the involvement of palliative care teams in the management of the dying patients in the ICU, there is a need to clearly define their early involvement and to further develop comprehensive evidence-based pain management strategies. Based on the study findings, we propose a management algorithm to improve the overall care of dying critically ill patients.

IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION In patients with distal radius fractures, early post-operative pain mediates psychological factors and affects wrist function. Anxiety and self-efficacy are psychological factors that should be noted, and rehabilitation, including self-management, should be considered. Rehabilitative interventions for distal...
