    Clinical Challenges in Surgical Palliative Care: Non-Beneficial Surgery (and How to Avoid it) and Care of the Imminently Dying Patient

    Play Episode Listen Later Dec 26, 2022 35:56


    Welcome to the fifth of a six-part series focused on the integration of palliative care into the practice of surgery.   In this episode, we discuss nonbeneficial surgery (and how best to avoid it) as well as care of the imminently dying patient. Nonbeneficial surgery is best defined as surgery that fails to meet the goals of the patient.   As our surgical patients become older and more medically complex, we must be aware of the factors which lead to nonbeneficial surgery – including patient, surrogate, system, and surgeon factors – and how best to approach each of these to avoid causing harm to our patients.  Nonbeneficial surgery not only causes harm to the patient, but can also cause harm to the surgical team, in the form of moral distress/injury.  Focusing on patients' goals of care can help us to avoid nonbeneficial surgery. One of the benefits of integrating palliative medicine into the practice of surgery is that there is never “nothing left to do.”  By learning how to recognize and then care for the imminently dying patient, as well as by having a basic understanding of the Medicare hospice benefit, we can support and care for the patient (and the family) beyond the operating room.  Non-Beneficial Surgery: Pitfalls in communication that lead to nonbeneficial emergency surgery in elderly patients with serious illness: description of the problem and elements of a solution. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24866541/ Surgeons' perspectives on avoiding nonbeneficial treatments in seriously ill older patients with surgical emergencies: a qualitative study. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27105058/ The association between factors promoting beneficial surgery and moral distress: a national survey of surgeons. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33214444/ The Imminently Dying Patient and Hospice: Fast Fact #3:  Syndrome of Imminent Death https://www.mypcnow.org/fast-fact/syndrome-of-imminent-death/ Fast Fact #82:  Medicare Hospice Benefit – Part 1: Eligibility and Treatment https://www.mypcnow.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/FF-82-Medicare-Hospice.-1-3rd-Ed-1.pdf Fast Fact #87:  Medicare Hospice Benefit – Part 2: Places of Care and Funding  https://www.mypcnow.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/FF-87-Medicare-Hospic-2-4th-Ed.pdf Fast Fact #140:  Medicare Hospice Benefit – Levels of Hospice Care https://www.mypcnow.org/fast-fact/medicare-hospice-benefits-levels-of-hospice-care/ Dr. Red Hoffman (@redmdnd) is an acute care surgeon and associate hospice medical director in Asheville, North Carolina, host of the Surgical Palliative Care Podcast (@surgpallcare) and co-founder of the recently launched Surgical Palliative Care Society (www.spcsociety.org).  Dr. Zara Cooper (@zaracMD) is an acute care surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital where she serves as Kessler Director for the Center of Surgery and Public Health (@csph_bwh).  She is a Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, associate faculty at Adriane Labs, and adjunct faculty at the Marcus Institute for Aging Research.   Dr. Amanda Stastny (@manda_plez) is a PGY-2 in the General Surgery program at Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) in Asheville, NC. **Specialty team application link - https://forms.gle/DwrRcMYDaP3a3LaQA Please email hello@behindtheknife.org with any questions.

    Dipping your toes in the water of surgical education research can be a daunting task if you have no prior experience, even if you have done basic or clinical research before. How do you create a good surgical education research project? How can clinicians get involved in and find mentors for surgical education research? Is formal postgraduate training becoming necessary for a career in surgical education? Luckily, we invite Dr. Jon Sherbino and Dr. Lara Varpio, hosts of the successful KeyLIME (Key Literature in Medical Education) podcast to share their valuable insights on medical education research with us. Check out KeyLIME on their website at https://keylimepodcast.libsyn.com/ and subscribe to KeyLIME on iTunes, Spotify, or Google podcasts! Learning Objectives 1.     Listeners will identify that surgical education applies the same rigor as other areas of research. 2.     Listeners will describe how observations within clinical practice and review of literature can lead to creation of a good research question. 3.     Listeners will describe how research questions should align with theory and methodology, which then align with conclusions for a research project. 4.     Listeners will identify that collaboration with colleagues with expertise in surgical education research, including education scientists, is important for successful completion of research with high rigor.  5.     Listeners will recognize advantages and disadvantages to formal training in education research, including fellowship and master's degree programs.

    Join our Miami Trauma team including Drs. Urréchaga, Neeman, and Rattan as they dive into the literature regarding a topic that has become all too common to the US news cycle- gun violence. They will go over a recent paper from JAMA and include other important literature while trying to understand this complex problem that has been grappling US public policy.  Quick Hits: 1.     Firearm injury is the leading cause death in the US among ages 1-19 2.     For every person killed violently by someone else with a firearm, there are 3 survivors.  3.     Gun ownership triples the risk of homicide 4.     Permit laws and preventing people convicted of a violent crime from owning a firearm decrease firearm-related death and have a positive ripple effect even outside state borders. In short, for effective reductions of firearm-related injury and death, federal legislation will be more effective than state-by-state References 1.     Liu, Y, Siegel, M, Sen, B.

    Clinical Challenges in Breast Surgery: Surgical Management of Metastatic Breast Cancer

    De novo metastatic breast cancer represents 6% of all new breast cancer diagnoses. This figure has not changed at all over the past 20 years; however, systemic therapy options have evolved dramatically during this time and have significantly increased life expectancy for these patients. While surgical management of the primary tumor in the setting of metastatic disease has typically been reserved for palliative indications, surgeons are now being asked to consider resecting the primary tumor to potentially increase overall survival. In this episode, we will use a case study to examine the data that should inform our conversations and decisions when we encounter patients with metastatic breast cancer who are interested in having their primary tumor resected.
