End-of-life educator Barbara Karnes is back to talk about death in the home, what it looks like, and how caregivers can manage a dying loved one at home.  The reality of a death at home is that it's a challenge for caregivers, and can put a heavy burden on the caregiver.  Before death became a medical event, it was a psychosocial event that was managed at home, and caregivers were supported by the community.  These days people frequently die in the hospital or in a nursing facility.  Family often is not present when a death happens.  A good death can happen at home; however, with family present.  Hospice support can be an important part of that care.  End-of-life workers can provide education, support, and encouragement that help caregivers manage the death experience.  Barbara describes the dying process as labor, very similar to labor for the birth of a baby.  Advance care planning (ACP) can help define how a person wants to die at home, identifying a medical decision-maker (MPOA or healthcare proxy).  Seriously ill adults who are living alone need a caregiving system.  Hospice social workers and chaplains can help solo agers identify an MPOA and build a support system for their caregiving.   Visit the BK Books website at bkbooks.com.

PARENTS AS RARE - EPISODE 074 Exploring Palliative Care Kimberly Matias, a social worker, and Michelle Hurty, a physician assistant, join me for an exploratory conversation about palliative care to dispel the myths that exist and provide information to my listeners. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS What is palliative care? Palliative care is a multi-disciplinary service that gets involved with patients and their families after the diagnosis of a serious or life-limiting illness. We work alongside the primary care team to coordinate communication, clarify any confusion or information, help the family along the journey and explore treatment goals. While hospice service is focused on end-of-life care with a six month or less prognosis, life expectancy isn't a condition for palliative service and we may work with patients for many, many years. Our role is to advocate for the patient. Who makes up a palliative care team? In order to provide full care, most palliative care teams have a multi-disciplinary team which may include a social worker, chaplain, physicians, a physician assistant, nurse practitioner and pharmacist. With disease progression and symptom presentation being different for every patient, who is a good candidate for palliative care? Our goal is to capture people upstream, recognizing their treatment goals are going to change over time as their disease progresses or evolves. Palliate care is for any point after someone receives a diagnosis and we're happy to get involved and be helpful all along the way. At an initial palliative care appointment, what questions are helpful to patients and families to ask and how can they prepare? Go in with an open mind, be open to having conversations and consider what you would like your healthcare to look like. It's helpful to think in advance about how things are going at home and what kind of resources are needed. Identify your durable power of attorney for healthcare in advance and if you have a living will, bring those documents with you.

Medical Aid in Dying is a controversial topic. Hospice Social Worker Lisa Pahl shares what it's like to support someone who's utilizing Medical Aid in Dying. Hospice team members are often present when a patient chooses Medical Aid in Dying, or MAID.  Lisa's experience has shown her how intense and intimate it can be to companion a patient and family during a MAID event.  Often the conversations about the death, and the details of how the patient wants it to happen, are enriched and deep.  Lisa shares that as a social worker, she finds her energy for supporting patients to be refilled rather than depleted.  Medical Aid in Dying is not legal in every state in the U.S.  It's important that hospice and end of life workers are aware of what the laws are in the state where they work. Whether or not hospice professionals support a MAID law, they should be able to accurately inform patients and families, and provide education.  Connect with hospice social worker and Death Deck co-creator Lisa Pahl at thedeathdeck.com.

Preaching for the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Lisa Frey, offers a reflection on our calling to give witness: "At family tables or meeting tables, at bedsides or on laptops… testimony needs to be lifted up everywhere there is a hunger for it. It is not the time for shrinking, for protests of inadequacy, unprepared, overwhelmed, too young, too old, not the right gender or race or orientation. No, testimony is our call. Testimony from the margins, denied the authority of office or ordination, when all that we have is our witness… you know how powerful that sometimes simple, authentic witness can be." Following a thirty-year career in parish ministry, Lisa Frey currently serves hospice patients and their families as a spiritual care coordinator with Hospice of the Western Reserve in the Cleveland, Ohio area. She earned her Master of Arts in Theology at St. Mary's Seminary in Cleveland and Doctor of Ministry in Homiletics at the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis.

Hospice social worker and grief counselor Jill Johnson-Young is sharing wisdom and her perspective on end of life care for the LGBTQ+ community.  Just like every other patient and caregiver, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their caregivers want to feel safe and be treated with respect during their end of life experience.  Although it's difficult to do, end of life workers need to be aware of their own biases.  Members of the LGBTQ+ community might be hesitant to choose hospice care, withhold necessary information from their end of life team, or even go back in the closet during hospice care. While each of us have opinions, hospice interdisciplinary team members should never voice those opinions about patients' and caregivers' lives.  Quality of care suffers when healthcare professionals show prejudice and judgmental attitudes.  The care of people in the LGBTQ+ community should be no different than the care that's provided to any other patients.  Everyone deserves respect, compassion, tolerance, and empathy.

Amid persistently inadequate numbers of direct care workers for resident care, long-term care administrators and staff members continue in their attempts to provide care for residents. The staffing crisis has led to regulatory issues, new sanctions from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and benchmarks for quality of care while facilities care for frail and dependent residents in the best ways possible given the circumstances. Moreover, the staffing crisis has resulted in the experience of moral distress for many direct health care workers. Moral distress occurs when health care professionals cannot act on their own moral judgment or what they believe to be right in a particular situation because of institutional or internal constraints. This podcast will feature the work and insights of GSA members Ozcan Tunalilar, PhD, and Beth Galik, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP. Dr. Tunalilar's research examines the role of organizational, contextual, and socioeconomic factors that contribute to the reproduction of inequalities in access to high-quality long-term care and in residents' experiences in the long-term care system. Dr. Galik's research has focused on care for residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities, functional and cognitive assessment, and enhancement of the geriatric workforce.  Guests:  Ozcan Tunalilar, PhD, Assistant Professor, Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, Institute on Aging, Portland State University; and Elizabeth Galik, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP, Professor and Chair, Organizational Systems and Adult Health, University of Maryland School of Nursing.

En Suisse, la dette des ménages représente 222% de leur revenu disponible, ce qui en fait un des pays les plus endettés de lʹOCDE. Pourtant toutes les dettes ne se valent pas: certaines sont source de honte, dʹautres sont admises ou même valorisées socialement. Hypothèque, crédits à la consommation, leasing, cartes de crédit: quels sont les mécanismes de lʹendettement?

Communication is crucial to creating the best end of life experience possible. We're talking about what to say, how to say it, and when to say it.  Knowing how to communicate with their end of life workers helps patients and their caregivers to get better care. Patients and caregivers should feel comfortable talking about symptoms to their hospice team and asking questions. The professionals providing care can't fix problems they don't know about.  It's also important to know what concerns need to be reported immediately and what information can wait.  The same holds true for the team members providing the care.  Patients and caregivers can be confused by medical jargon or terms.  Education should be provided in ways that are easy to understand.  Providing information quickly can also be very important.  Any instructions should be clear and concise.  It can be really helpful to leave a set of written instructions in the house for caregivers to reference when they're providing care on their own.  And don't forget compliments - saying something positive about the care someone is providing can make their day.  Good communication will influence the quality of care you provide - and the patient's quality of life.

This week's love story is a bit of a departure from our regular fare. In fact, it's a place of departures. Hospice is a special approach to palliative or end of life care. And it encompasses not just the physical, but also emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones. Hospice Halifax is a compassionate and supportive community of staff, volunteers, and donors dedicated to making dying and living as comfortable and as meaningful as possible at the end of life.

Certified Grief Coach Jenny Dilts is helping people to find the calm inside the grief storm.  Jenny finds incredible meaning in supporting people going through a loss.  Jenny defines grief as a loss, change, or absence of connection.  Whether it's from a death, a relationship, or a life role, she guides clients to find both the sadness and joy inside the grief experience. Loss of identity, trauma, independence, finances, unmet expectations and dreams are all sources of grief.  Hospice patients and their caregivers deal with grief long before a death occurs. Anticipatory grief includes so many different types of loss. Jenny believes in finding the joy that exists along with the sadness of grief.   Listen to Jenny Dilts' podcast Sharing Your Story: Exploring Humanity One Heart at a Time on Apple podcasts, Spotify, or Anchor FM.

Our guest this week is a dear friend of mine. Ned Buskirk is the founder of You're Going to Die, which started as an open mic that offered a communal space to share stories about death, loss, and grieving. It progressed, as most things do, eventually becoming a nonprofit that brings music to the bedside of hospice patience, operates grief groups, delivers resources to help people in the prison system process their own grief and loss, and even a podcast of the same name, You're Going To Die.  I truly believe in Ned's work and purpose, which is why I've repeatedly used these resources myself, as well as, referred my clients to them over the years. Together we discussed how You're Going to Die has evolved, reorienting to aliveness and life after tragedy, what he has learned over the years, what his own coping strategies around loss are, remaining humble, being a community resource, and the positive as well as the weighty impact of this work on all aspects Ned's life. We even spend a good amount of time talking about, Alive Inside, a non-profit and runoff of You're Going To Die, where Ned brings his work and experiences to the incarcerated.  Dying, death, grief, and tragedy are all a part of this journey we call life and Ned brings a lot of necessary community and awareness to these topics. Join us this week in demystifying death by accepting it during our life.

Eric and I weren't sure what to call this podcast  - storytelling and medicine? Narrative medicine?  We discussed it with today's guests Heather Coats, palliative care NP-scientist, and Thor Ringler, poet.  It wasn't until the end that the best term emerged - storycatching.  Because that really is what this is about.  Clinicians “catching” patient life stories.    What's in a story?  Well, as we learned, everything.  Our patients aren't “the 76 year old with heart failure in room 202,” as Heather Coats astutely noted.  They're people, and what makes us people if not our life's stories?  Our loves, our triumphs, our failures, our work, our families.   Thor Ringler helped start the My Life My Story project at the Madison VA in Wisconsin.  It's since spread to over 70 VAs.  VA “gets” the importance of storytelling in medicine, without the need for reams of research to back it up.  As Thor notes, capturing patient stories has face validity as positively impacting the patients who share their stories and have them documented, and for the clinicians who get to truely and deeply know their patients in far greater depth than “what brought you to the hospital?” Heather Coats is hard at work establishing the evidence base for the power of capturing patient stories in healthcare settings, for those health systems that need a little more convincing.    Wonderful work.  Enjoy!

Hospice in America has become a big business. The hospice movement came to the U.S. from England in the 1960s, promising comfort and compassion at the end of life. Today, half of all Americans die in hospice care. But what was once a mission-driven sector run by not-for-profit organizations has become a booming industry – one that some experts say too often prioritizes profit over patients. In a piece for The New Yorker, ProPublica's Ava Kofman traces how this transformation happened. She points to lax regulations and a Medicare payment system that is easily exploited by companies looking to make a buck. Diane talked to Kofman about her reporting on rampant fraud, harm to patients, and what can be done about it.
