Sorting out the confusion of what is and isn’t hospice

first_img While most people have heard the term hospice before, there can be confusion about what hospice care really is and what it isn’t. Suzanne Karefa-Johnson, MD, a hospice physician at Florida Hospital, provides information and insight about what hospice can do for patients at the end of their lives.Dr. Suzanne Karefa-JohnsonWhat is hospice? What isn’t hospice? Hospice isn’t a place, but rather is a way of caring that brings comfort to people with a life-limiting illness. The focus is on enhancing a patient’s quality of life. Each patient and his or her caregivers receive individualized care that meets their unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Hospice care focuses on caring, not curing, and neither hastens nor prolongs the dying process.“Hospice is truly the best model for delivering end-of-life care,” says Dr. Karefa-Johnson. “The goal is to seamlessly integrate life, dying and the process for family members after a loved one has died.”Does hospice mean you have to go to the hospital, a nursing home or a special center? Or, can my loved one receive in home hospice care in his/her own bed?
Because hospice is a way of delivering care at the end of life, it goes to where the patient is.“Most patients in hospice are at home, but some are in nursing homes, assisted living, or the hospital,” explains Dr. Karefa-Johnson. “It’s not about where the patient is, it’s about what they need. Some hospice organizations do have brick and mortar facilities, but hospice care is not tied to a location.”Who makes up the hospice medical team?The interdisciplinary hospice team includes a physician, nurse, social worker, non-denominational chaplain, certified nursing assistant, trained volunteer and bereavement counselor.“The hospice team meets with the patient and family to create an integrated care plan to address each patient’s unique needs. Each member of the team works to provide the patient and family with the care and support they need,” Dr. Karefa-Johnson says.Is hospice only for elderly patients?
“No, although many people have that perception,” says Dr. Karefa-Johnson. “Hospice is there for patients of any age dealing with a terminal disease. Medicare hospice benefits can be activated when two physicians certify that a patient has six months or less to live.”Does hospice assist the family after the patient dies?Yes, hospice provides continuous support for 13 months following the death of a loved one with individual counseling, grief support groups, workshops, social groups and literature.
Is hospice covered by medical insurance, Medicare or Medicaid? 
Hospice services are covered under Medicare Part A, Medicaid and most private insurances. This benefit covers the hospice team’s services, medications, supplies and equipment related to the patient’s life-limiting illness. There may be co-pays, co-insurance or a deductible under insurance plans. Hospice staff will work with patients, families, insurance providers and other resources to ensure the patient receives all the benefits available.What criteria should I consider if there’s more than one hospice program available?You should be sure that any hospice program is Medicare certified. Medicare requires certified hospices to provide minimum requirements of care, but the quality and quantity of services may vary greatly.“Talk to your family, friends and physician for hospice recommendations,” suggests Dr. Karefa-Johnson. “Also ask about the credentials and training of the hospice staff, as well as any extra services, such as pet therapy or aromatherapy, as these can vary from hospice to hospice. The goal should be to find the hospice program that is right for you and will address what is important to you.”When is it time for hospice?Many patients and families consider hospice care when there is an incurable disease with a life-limiting prognosis and curative treatment is no longer available or desired.“I recommend that families have ‘courageous conversations’ about end-of-life planning before the need becomes imminent,” Dr. Karefa-Johnson says. “And don’t wait to contact hospice once you have a life-limiting prognosis. Everyone we work with always says they wish they had contacted hospice sooner.” UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 1 COMMENT Please enter your name here Vivian You have entered an incorrect email address!

Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR So many patients just do not fully know the differences between hospice and palliative care. Even children can receive palliative care and continue to live and thrive as their illness is either cured or better treated. Of course, children can also receive hospice care if they are nearing the end of a terminal illness. I’m glad to see that you are sharing this kind of information to educate patients about what is involved in hospice care.

The partnership began in 2015 and is aiming to smash its half a million target by December 2020.  To raise the money, the team at P&O Cruises took part in fundraising initiatives both at their head office and on-board, such as foreign coin collections, summer fete events, and donations from ship visit ticket sales. The team has also taken on sponsored challenges such as the London and Edinburgh Marathons.  At least half of the £300,000 was raised through P&O Cruises ‘Trek the Deck’ challenge, a 5km walk around the ship’s deck. Guests donate £10 to enter, and receive a specially designed Teenage Cancer Trust and P&O Cruises t-shirt. The activity was originally launched on two ships during summer 2018, but it was so popular with passengers that it is now a year-round feature on the entire fleet.  It’s @WWF’s @earthhour ?? tonight—switch off for the planet between 8.30-9.30pm!

Urology Center offers free PSA screenings in Troy

first_img The Urology Centers of Alabama in Birmingham will sponsor free PSA screenings for ages 40 and over March 19 at the Pike County Health Department.The prostate cancer screenings will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and no appointment is necessary.Dr. Thomas Moody said Urology Centers of Alabama has been offering free PSA screenings throughout the state for 10 years and for about six years in Troy. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Book Nook to reopen Published 3:00 am Wednesday, March 9, 2016 By Jaine Treadwell About 100 men in the Pike County area took advantage of the free PSA screenings offer last March by Urology Centers of Alabama.“We would like to have an even better turnout this year,” Moody said. “We recommend the prostate cancer screenings for ages 40 and up but we don’t turn anybody away. If we find the cancer in its early stages it is treatable. Waiting until a cancer is in an advanced stage is a recipe for disaster.”Moody said some prostate cancers don’t need any treatment, just to be watched closely.“Prostate cancer, if detected early, is treatable and most often curable,” he said. “That’s the reason Urology Centers of Alabama offers free PSA screenings. Still, too many guys die from prostate cancer. The number of deaths from prostate cancer is going down. We want that trend to continue.” Email the author Sponsored Content Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Daycenter_img Next Up“The good news is that things are getting better,” Moody said. “The death rate from prostate cancer is going down. And what is so important about that is the difference between incidents in black and white men is less.”Moody said black men are at a higher risk for prostate cancer than white men.“More black men are being checked and the earlier prostate cancer is detected the greater chance that it can be cured. That is why we are seeing a decrease in the death rate from prostate cancer among black men. Urology Centers of Alabama is partnering with Troy Regional Medical Center for this round of prostate screenings to include glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure checks also at no charge.“Most men aren’t as good about getting health checks as women,” Moody said. “For whatever reasons, they don’t make it in. So we are offering these other health checks while they are here. And, we’ll make them quick and easy.”All that is needed for the PSA screening and other health checks is the individual’s name, an address where the results can be sent by mail and a phone number.“If an abnormality is found, the patient will be notified and he can choose to go to a urologist, his family physician or any physician of his choice,” Moody said. “However, if a guy has no funds or insurance, he can come to Urology Centers of Alabama in Birmingham for treatment. We will not leave anybody hanging high and dry. We will take care of whatever procedure is necessary. So, there’s no financial reason not to come for the free PSA screenings.

The books were placed at CHCHC in support of the child health center’s Reach Out and Read program.Ed Averett, Troy Kiwanis Club secretary, said “Need a Book/Take a Book” box is for  children who visit CHCHC to read at the center or take home as their own.“Members of the Troy Kiwanis Club collected books from members of the community and we have nearly a thousand new and like-new books,” Averett said. “Iris Byrd, who also works with Friends of the Library at the Troy Public Library, donated many books from her private collection. Employees at Townsend Building Supply and Kiwanis Club members here in Troy also donated a large number of books.” Latest Stories You Might Like Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Averett said the books will be replaced as needed and as often as needed.“This is an ongoing project and hopes are that we will need to replace books often,” he said. “We want the children to want to take a book home. That is an indication that they are enjoying reading. The more they read, the better. If they need a book, we want them to take a book.”Parker Reiss, club president, said the Kiwanis’ “Need a Book/ Take a Book” project is an effort to encourage children to read more and also to put books in the hands of children.“There are many children who don’t have access to books at home and certainly not a book of their own,” Reiss said. “The Troy Kiwanis Club wants every child who wants a book to have one.” The Need a Book/Take a Book box is, for all purposes, bottomless.“We will keep it filled,” Reiss said. Rosemary Hanson, CHCHC Reach Out and Read director, expressed appreciation to the Troy Kiwanis Club for its donation to CHCHC and to the children.“The center has a program encouraging all children from infancy to school age to become acquainted with books and to learn to love them,” Hanson said. “We have a prescription for all children, ages six months to five years, who are being seen for well check appointments.”In the examining room, the pediatrician gives an age-appropriate book to the child and counsels parents on how to use books to support their child’s health development.Hanson said CHCHC is pleased to offer a program to their patients and their families that will have a lasting positive impact and will hopefully start them on a road to successful learning.“The ‘Need a Book/Take a Book’ project is an extension of the CHCHC literacy program and extends the opportunity to read books and own books to all children who visit the child health center. The support of the Troy Kiwanis Club is greatly appreciated.” Pictured with the kids, seated left, Alexandra Henning and Kristi King, Troy nursing students.

Reading is fun; it’s fundamental and it opens doors to the world.There are dozens of reasons why children should read. But if a child does not enjoy reading, chances are that he or she will miss many wonderful opportunities for learning and enjoyment.The Troy Kiwanis Club wants to do its part in encouraging children to read for the enjoyment of it and to pride in the ownership of books.

Recent climate variability in the vicinity of the antarctic peninsula

first_imgSurface air temperature records from stations on the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula show a higher degree of interannual variability and stronger long-term warming trends than recorded elsewhere in Antarctica. Possible mechanisms for driving these fluctuations are investigated. The extreme climatic sensitivity of this region may be linked to a stronger coupling between temperatures and regional sea-ice extent than is seen elsewhere in Antarctica. Significant interannual persistence of air temperature anomalies suggests a link with ocean temperatures or circulation.last_img read more

Competition, sub-lethal mortality and diversity on Southern Ocean coastal rock communities

first_imgOvergrowth competition, sub-lethal mortality (some zooids killed but colony survives) and subsequent growth from fragments, and diversity of communities encrusting rocks (pebble through to boulder size) were examined from five Antarctic localities, along a latitudinal gradient. There were distinct gradients in the ecology of both assemblages and individual species with latitude within the Southern Ocean. Compared with warm-water equivalents, the polar assemblages had many fewer species, considerably less variability in species richness, highly transitive interactions and lower incidences of interspecific encounters. There is no gradual transition but a dramatic alteration of assemblage and species level ecology around the margins of the Southern Ocean, which may primarily be due to ice scour. Sub-lethal mortality was common and peaked on different boulder sizes along the Antarctic Peninsula. This is indicative of the disturbance dine along the region.last_img read more
