Would it be possible to do Child Psych --> Peds Palliative? I am assuming the answer is no but I was curious about whether there is any possible way to make this happen without triple boarding. Thanks!
ConclusionOur study suggests PRISM score performed as well as modified SHFM for one-year mortality prediction. Moreover, the addition of modified SHFM to PRISM score increases discriminatory ability in predicting 1-year mortality in heart failure patients compared to either of the two models alone. Together, when combined in a CART model, they can be used to identify the population subset with the highest mortality risk and hence guide goals of care discussion.
Purpose: Acute kidney injury (AKI) affects cancer therapy outcome and increases morbidity and mortality in cancer patients. We investigated the incidence, risk factors, and clinical outcomes of AKI caused by palliative chemotherapy in lung cancer patients.Materials and Methods: Between January 2005 and November 2014, 207 lung cancer patients who had been treated with first-line palliative chemotherapy were enrolled. Renal function was assessed during every cycle of chemotherapy. AKI was defined based on changes in serum creatinine levels as described in the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes guidelines. Clinical out...

Authors: Reed K Abstract The main goal of palliative care is to relieve suffering. Opioids are an essential part of the pharmacological options required to address suffering by helping to relieve the pain and chronic breathlessness that may be experienced by someone with a life-limiting illness. This paper considers the recent history and current issues of the 'opioid crisis' providing recommendations to which regulatory and peak bodies can work with the Australian government, ensuring consistent adherence to WHO guidelines maintaining access to evidence based opioid management for palliative care patients whilst a...
Hi all, Will be doing palliative care fellowship next year. I wanted to see if anyone had recommendations for a go-to palliative care textbook or book. Is there a "definitive" textbook out there? Would love to start learning about palliative care in advance of my first day in fellowship! Thanks.
CONCLUSION: This study reinforces the dismal prognosis of ACC, the need for long-term follow-up, and tumor stage as the most important survival predictor. Reviewing medical records in such rare conditions is an opportunity to identify insufficiencies and to improve medical care. PMID: 31823340 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsSegmental left colectomy for splenic flexure carcinoma is associated with reasonably low morbidity and very good functional results. However, survival rates are low.
ConclusionAL score is a promising indicator which can be used to predict the prognosis of MPE patients. It can assist physicians in the selection of patients for appropriate palliative treatment.Key pointsTo our knowledge, this paper is the first study that combined two enzymes (sALP and pLDH) from serum and pleural effusion and studied the prognostic value for MPE patients. It has been proved to be a promising indicator to assist physicians select patients for appropriate palliative treatment.
