Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment: What You Need To Know About MOLST

Frequently, a terminally-ill patient’s wishes for end-of-life care are unknown, resulting in confusion at critical times, when decisions about life-sustaining treatments must be made.

Therapeutic Updates, Best Practices, and Barriers to Care in the Treatment of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a serious medical condition found in a diverse range of patient populations. Because of the etiologically heterogeneous nature of this condition, many treatment modalities exist, some of which apply to a broader range of patient populations than do others. For several reasons that are both patient- and provider-specific and include concern over medication dependence, stigma to narcotic use, and the inherent difficulty in measuring the subjective phenomenon of pain itself, chr...

End of Life: Helping with Comfort and Care

End-of-life care is the term used to describe the support and medical care given during the time surrounding death. Such care does not happen just in the moments before breathing finally stops and a heart ceases to beat. An older person is often living, and dying, with one or more chronic illnesses and needs a lot of care for days, weeks, and sometimes even months. Generally speaking, people who are dying need care in four areas—physical comfort, mental and emotional needs, spiritual issues,...

Death and Dying: The “Butterflies are Free” Program

Dying isn’t a subject that Americans like to think about. Our national character is vibrant, optimistic, life-affirming. These qualities have been a great advantage to us as a people, but they have a down side. They make us less inclined to think about the inevitable sad events such as death. Consequently, we are often less prepared for it, psychologically and otherwise, than people in other cultures. The “Butterflies are Free” program was designed by the Staff Associates at Life Care Ce...

If end-of-life wishes have not been discussed, patients are at increased risk for aggressive and futile care in the final weeks and months of life. These situations create ...
