We aim at understanding the intricacy faced by the relevant people of the industry and evolving towards a better charge in the field of Hospice and Palliative Care.

Track 01: Hospice and Palliative Care

Hospice Care delineated to give supportive care to people in the final phase of a terminal illness and focus on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The objective is to enable patients to be comfortable and free of pain, and this is main hospice advantage, whereas  Palliative care is an approach that boosts the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem which correlates with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable estimation and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psycho social and spiritual.

Track 02: Palliative Care and End of Life Care

Palliative care guidelines generally refers to patient and family-centred care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and alleviating suffering across the continuum of a patient’s illness. Historically, palliative care referred to treatment available to patients at home and enrolled in hospice. More recently, palliative care has become available to acutely ill patients and its meaning has evolved to encompass comprehensive care that may be provided along with disease-specific, life-prolonging treatment. End-of-life care refers to comprehensive care for a life-limiting illness that meets the patient’s medical, physical, psychological, spiritual and social needs. Hospice care is a service delivery system that emphasizes symptom management without life-prolonging treatment, and is intended to enhance the quality of life for both patients with a limited life expectancy and their families.

Track 03: Palliative Care and Symptom Management

Good administration of symptoms in the terminal phase is one of the main concerns of patients and their families. The physical amenity of dying patients requires thorough appraisal, excellent nursing care and careful prescribing. Some patients may experience unsuppressed and distressing symptoms at the end of life.

The palliative care approach to symptom management is based on thorough assessment of current symptoms, and planning ahead for common problems. There is adjuvant evidence from a systematic review which showed a small but consistent positive blow of palliative care services on symptoms, quality of life, and satisfaction at the end of life.

Track 05: Palliative Care and Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy plays a significant role on palliative and hospice careOccupational therapy practitioners consider both the physical and psychosocial/behavioural health needs of the patient, concentrating on what is most important to him or her to fulfil, support systems and the available resources and the environments in which the patient wants and is able to participate.

Track 06: Palliative Care and Spiritual Care

Spirituality can be described as that which gives meaning to life.  It refers to the universal human need for love, hope, relatedness, value, and dignity.  Spirituality may or may not involve religious beliefs and practices. Learning that you or a loved one has a terminal illness presents many challenges.  It can also present opportunities for life review, realized potential, celebration of accomplishments, connection with loved ones, and reconciliation. Hospice and Palliative Care are available to assist you with the challenges and opportunities that may arise.   Palliative care is physical, emotional and spiritual care for a dying person when cure is not possible. It includes compassion and support for family and friends.

Track 07: Palliative Care and Emergency Medicine

Patients with serious or life-threatening illness are likely to find themselves in an emergency department at some point along their trajectory of illness, and they should expect to receive high-quality palliative care in that setting. In the last five years, emergency medicine has increasingly taken a central role in the early implementation of palliative care. Widespread integration of palliative care into the day-to-day practice of emergency medicine, however, is often jeopardized by the demands of many competing priorities.

Track 08: Palliative Care Nursing

The goal of palliative care is to help them achieve the best possible quality of life through relief of suffering, control of symptoms, and restoration of functional capacity, while remaining sensitive to personal, cultural and religious values, believes and practices”. It is important that these nurses are trained in end of life treatment, psychological support, symptom management and enhancing the quality of life for their patients and the patient's families.

Track 13: Palliative Care and Geriatrics

Geriatrics is a specialty that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist. Geriatrics differs from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. The aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body, and during old age, the decline of various organ systems becomes manifest. Previous health issues and lifestyle choices produce a different constellation of diseases and symptoms in different people.

Heart Disease identifies the need for patients with heart failure to have access to palliative care services for on-going support and advice; and for Renal Services goes further, listing as a quality requirement for patients near the end of life to have ‘a jointly agreed palliative care plan, built around their individual needs and preferences’. People with long-term neurological conditions, should have access to a range of palliative care services when near the end of life.

Palliative care can address a broad range of issues, integrating an individual’s specific needs into care. The physical and emotional effects of cancer and its treatment may be very different from person to person. For example, differences in age, cultural background, or support systems may result in very different palliative care needs.

Market analysis

Palliative Care Research: Market Analysis 2018

Introduction & Scope

INTRODUCTION

Palliative Care is a region of health care that keeps tabs on assuaging and anticipating the enduring of patients. Palliative prescription is a multidisciplinary approach to patient forethought, depending on data from drug specialists, doctors, clerics, social labourers, nurture, analysts and other associated health experts in planning an arrangement of consideration to reduce enduring in every aspect of a patient's existence. Unlike hospice mind, palliative medication is appropriate for patients in all sickness stages, incorporating those experience medicine for reparable ailments and patients who are nearing the close of life and in addition those living with unending infections.

OVERVIEW

Medicines for the relieving of side effects were seen as risky and seen as welcoming fixation and other unwanted side effects. The activity on a patient's personal satisfaction has expanded outstandingly throughout the previous fifteen years. In the United States today, 65% of clinics with more than 150 mattresses offer a palliative-mind program, and about one-fourth of group healing centres have palliative-mind programs. A generally later improvement is the palliative-mind group.

This multidisciplinary procedure permits the palliative forethought group to address passionate, physical, social worries and otherworldly that emerges with progressed disease. Medications are said to have a palliative impact in the event that they lessen side effects without having a remedial impact on the underlying infection or cause. This can incorporate something as straightforward as ibuprofen to treat yearning identified with a flu tainting or morphine to treat the ache of broken leg or treating queasiness identified with chemotherapy. In spite of the fact that the notion of palliative forethought is not new, most of the medical practitioners have generally concentrates on attempting to cure patients.

In the US palliative care services can be provided to any patient without restriction to disease or prognosis. Hospice care extending the Medicare Hospice Benefits however requires that two physicians certify that a patient has less than six months to live if the disease goes behind its usual course. Such restrictions do not exist in other countries such as the United Kingdom. This does not mean, though, that if a patient is still living after six months in hospice he or she will be discharged from the service.  Physicians practicing palliative care do not always receive support from family members, patients, healthcare professionals or their social peers for their work to reduce suffering and follow patients' wishes for end-of-life care.

Why it’s in Philadelphia, USA

Philadelphia is the vast city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the North-eastern United States, at the confluence of the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers, Philadelphia is the economic and cultural mainstay of the Delaware Valley and the eighth-largest combined statistical area in the United States. Philadelphia is the fifth-most populous city in the United States.

In 1682, William Penn founded the city to be as capital of the Pennsylvania Colony. In the 19th century, Philadelphia became the railroad hub that grew from an influx of European immigrants and also a major industrial centre. It became a main destination for African-Americans in the Great Migration.

The city is known for its culture, history and art attracting over 39 million domestic tourists in 2013. The area's many universities and colleges make Philadelphia a prime international study destination, and also as the city have evolved into an economic hub and educational. The 67 National Historic indicators in the city helped account for the $10 billion generated by tourism. Philadelphia has more murals and outdoor sculptures than any other American city, and Fairmount Park is the largest landscaped urban park in the world. Philadelphia is the only World Heritage City in the United States. Philadelphia is the home of many U.S. firsts, including the first library first hospital and medical school, first Capitol, first stock exchange, first zoo and first business school and also the birthplace of the United States Marine Corps.

Members Associated with Palliative Care

Some of the key players in this market division are the International Association of Geriatric Care, National Association of Professional Care Managers, National Hospice and Palliative care Organization and the World Health Organization, Senior Care Centres, Hospice Buffalo, the UF health, the Jewish Family Service, Hospice by the Bay and others. These players continuously participate in awareness programs, as well as acquisitions to serve the elderly society effectively and mergers.

Market Value on Palliative Care

The overall shift towards treating patients outside of costly acute care settings benefits hospice utilization. 98% of hospice patient care days are delivered in a non-acute setting. The percentage of elderly who died in acute care hospitals fell from 33% in 2000 to 25% in 2009.Patients and families continue to become more educated on the many benefits of hospice, driving utilization.

Market Growth of Palliative Care in the last and upcoming ten years

The $18.9 billion hospice industry is projected to grow 7.4% annually through 2017.Hospice is the provision of holistic and individualized care to patients facing a life-limiting illness and their families. Congress created the Medicare hospice benefit in 1982.The goal of hospice is to maximize the quality of life and comfort, not to cure. Hospice is gaining wider acceptance as an alternative to curative care at the end of life. Approximately 44% of Medicare decedents in 2010 received hospice care compared to 23% in 2000.Growth in the hospice industry will be driven by shifts in patient preferences towards non-acute care, hospice’s cost saving value proposition, and the aging of the U.S. population.

Statistics of Physicians, Researchers and Academicians working on Palliative Care Research

In total, 982 responses, including 295 from palliative care physicians, 125 from nurses, and 120 from chaplains, were received from 89 countries. Mean age was 49.8 years (standard deviation, 10.9), 68% were women, and 63% were Christian. 56% reported their work as "mainly clinical," and less than 2.8% stated that no further research was needed. Integrating qualitative and quantitative data demonstrated three priority areas for research: Screening and assessment, Development and assessment of spiritual care interventions and determining the effectiveness of spiritual care and Growth and evaluation of conversation models and overcoming barriers to spiritual care in staff attitudes.
