Session/Tracks

Track-01:  Hospice and Palliative Care

Palliative care and hospice care quite oftentimes used exchangeably, though not entirely correct. Hospice care in certain parts of the world, needs to meet up with the specific eligibility criteria and fetch up a qualified service provider in the concerned field. Furthermore, one can recuperate palliative care from any doctor at about any hospital , but it is often adviced to fetch up a specialized care personnel for the same. Palliative care involves providing relief and comfort to a patient who is being treated for a serious disease or illness, whether it is terminal or not. It can include providing the patient with painkillers after bone-break or signalizing anti-nausea medication while the person concerned, are undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Palliative care can also be machicolated to patients who push aside the curative treatments, case in point, if the patient has limited self-care capabilities, or is not benefiting from any treatment, or has evidence that further treatment will not help the condition. This type of care remediates the symptoms rather than fetching up to provide a cure. 

 

 Track-02:  Palliative Drugs and Medications

When it comes to medications for pain management and associated palliative drugs, there are two broad categories: opioids, which lacklustre pain systemically, end to end of the body; and adjuvant analgesics, or helper medications that can drogue specific types of pain, often by fighting inflammation.

Opioids: Opioid medications are purchasable only by dint of a viable prescription. There are numerous opioid drugs that palliative care physicians most unremarkably prescribe for moderating severe pain in the context of a grave or life-threatening illness. They are known as opioid analgesics. Some of which seemingly similar compounds available in open market are listed below:

•  Codeine

•  Fentanyl

•  Hydrocodone

•  Acetaminophen

•  Hydromorphone

•   Meperidine

•  Methadone

•  Morphine

•  Oxycodone  

•  Naloxone

These drugs can be taken in numerous variable ways. If the person can swallow, all can be provided orally. If the person can no longer be able to do the same, some medications needed to be provided in the intravenous manner, while others can be provided through sub-cutaneous injections.

There are other options, as well. According to Muir, an eminent personnel of the field, an opioid can be mixed with a gel to deliver it topically, through the skin, with a compounding pharmacist's support. Furthermore, according to his opinion, there are also formulations and sub-compounds of fentanyl, which can be delivered by patch or through a cheek film that crosses the mucous membranes in the mouth.

Although opioids are excellent in controlling pain, they do have side effects. Among the most common are:

Constipation: This is the one you can't get around. Most people who take an opioid experience some degree of constipation and it doesn't tend to go away as your body gets accustomed to the medication.Taking a stool softener and laxative preventive measure, regularly as a precautionary measure can keep most constipation under control.In addition, the drugs lubiprostone, methylnaltrexone, naldemedine, and naloxegol are approved to treat constipation specifically due to opioid use in those with chronic pain.

 

 Track-03: Psychiatric Palliative care

As an epochal proportion of patients retrieving palliative care, suffer from states of anxiety, depression, delirium, or other mental symptoms, psychiatry and palliative care already join force closely in the palliative care for medical circumstances. Besides, this well-established involvement of psychiatrists in palliative care, as of now, psychiatry does not unambiguously provide palliative care for patients with mental illness outside the arena of terminal medical illness. Based on the WHO explanatory definition, of palliative care, a working definition of palliative psychological care is proposed. Palliative psychiatry emphasizes on mental health rather than medical/physical matters. We propose that the beneficiaries of palliative psychiatry are patients with severe persistent mental illness, who are at risk of therapeutic neglect and/or overly aggressive care within current paradigms. These include long-term residential care patients with severe chronic schizophrenia and insufficient quality of life, those with therapy-refractory depressions and repeated suicide attempts, and those with severe long-standing therapy-refractory anorexia nervosa. An explicitly palliative approach within psychiatry has the potential to improve quality of care, person-centredness, outcomes, and autonomy for patients with severe persistent mental illness.

 

Track-04: Oncological and Terminal Palliative Care

Palliative care is a rapidly growing subspecialty of medicine entailing expert and active assessment, evaluation and treatment of the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of patients and families with serious illnesses. It provides an added layer of support to the patient's regular medical care. As cancer is detected earlier and its treatments improve, palliative care and nursing is increasingly playing a vital role in the oncology population. Because of these advances in oncology, the role of palliative care services for such patients is actively evolving. Herein, we will highlight emerging paradigms in palliative care and attempt to delineate key education, research and policy areas that lie ahead for the field of palliative oncology. Despite the critical need for improving multi-faceted and multi-specialty symptom management and patient–physician communication, we will focus on the interface between palliative care and oncology specialists, a relationship that can lead to better overall patient care on all of these levels. Oncologists hold different notions and continue to receive mixed messages regarding the scope of palliative care. This phenomenon reflects a rapidly changing healthcare landscape, necessitating continual palliative care education and provider self-assessment in order to deliver the highest quality care to patients with serious illnesses.

At its origins, palliative care was defined in 1990, by the World Health Organization (WHO) as ‘the active total care of patients whose disease is not responsive to curative treatments’. While the definition further stated that ‘many aspects of palliative care are also applicable earlier in the course of the illness, palliative nursing was initially conceptualized as a specialty to care for end-stage and dying cancer patients. Over the past two decades, in response to the needs of patients living with serious illness for multiple years, the transformation of many cancers into chronic diseases through treatment advances, and the recognition that patients cannot be segmented into those who are living and those who are dying, the definition and role palliative care has evolved and changed. Indeed, in 2012, palliative care is defined as specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. This kind of care is centered around giving patients alleviation from the side effects, torment, and worry of a genuine disease, whatever the determination. The objective is to enhance personal satisfaction for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is given by a group of specialists, medical attendants, and different authorities who work with a patient's different specialists to give an additional layer of help. This present definition is remarkable for its absence of any say of 'cure'. While patients receiving palliative care can transition into hospice and end-of-life care, the goal of palliative care is to optimize quality of life while living with a serious illness. Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and can be provided together with curative treatment. Recent perspectives from leaders in oncology and palliative care agree with this notion of co-management, regardless of curability. Alongside recent progress run many obstacles for moving palliative care of the cancer patient forward, as well as an ever-growing cadre of complex patient needs. Cancer care has transformed many of the disease states under the purview of the medical oncologist into a chronic illness. In 2007, upwards of 12 million patients were alive in the US with cancer a dramatic increase from 3 million in 1971. As the number of US citizens with multiple co-morbidities is estimated to swell to 81 million in 2020, cancer survivors will also be grappling with competing illnesses. Accordingly, cancer patients presenting to palliative medicine specialists on average report greater than ten symptoms, and suffer from progressively worse quality of life. The majority of cancer patients want information about their prognosis and options for care, prefer to spend time at home and out of hospitals, desire palliative care, and hope to die at home. However, recent evidence demonstrates that the majority of patients, including those with cancer, report inadequate discussions with their physicians regarding goals of care and prognosis, and poor satisfaction with multiple areas of communication in the setting of serious illness. Finally, upwards of 30% of Medicare beneficiaries with cancer die in the hospital, not infrequently with intensive care and chemotherapy services in that last month of life. Reimbursement reform, access to palliative care and improvements in patient–physician communication are necessary in order to address these deficiencies.

 

Track-05: Neonatal and Pediatric Palliative Care

The use of palliative and hospice care to infants in the neonatal emergency unit has been clear for more than 30 years. This article tends to the history, current contemplations, and foreseen future requirements for palliative and hospice mind in the NICU, and depends on late writing survey. Neonatologists have since quite a while ago dealt with the total of numerous infants' short lives, given the moderately high death rates related with rashness and birth deserts, however their capacity or ability to completely address of the continuum of interdisciplinary palliative, end of life, and mourning consideration has changed generally. While neonatology benefit limit has become worldwide amid this time, so has consideration regarding pediatric palliative care by and large, and neonatal-perinatal palliative care particularly. Upgrades have happened in family-focused care, correspondence, torment appraisal and administration, and deprivation. There remains a need to coordinate palliative care with escalated mind instead of anticipate its application exclusively at the terminal period of a youthful newborn child's life—when she is quickly passing on. Future contemplations for applying neonatal palliative care incorporate its combination into fetal demonstrative administration, the creating period of genomic solution, and extending research into palliative care models and practices in the NICU.

 

Track-06:  Palliative Care Management

Teach the patient and family how to give great palliative care at home as indicated by the side effects

Record pharmaceuticals with directions

Leave the patient however much accountable for his or her own particular care as could be expected

Assess the patient for torment (in all patients) where Palliative Care is nessecary

Determine the reason for the torment by history and examination (for new agony and any   adjustment in torment)that may need the Palliative Nursing.

Determine the sort of torment associated that needs Palliative Care

Is there a mental or otherworldly segment?

Grade the agony with the faces (especially in youngsters) or with your hand (with 0 being no torment, 1 finger exceptionally mellow torment and 5 fingers the most noticeably bad conceivable torment.)

Treat torment, as indicated by whether it is a typical or an extraordinary torment issue or both.

Use of opioids and non-opioid analgesics

Give prescriptions to control exceptional agony issues

Teach family to give oral morphine

Help them oversee reactions

Preventive oral watch over all patients

Track-07: Biology of Ageing

The components proposed to impact geriatrics and gerontology fall into two fundamental classifications, programmed and damage related. Programmed factors take after a certain biological timetable, probably one that may be a continuation of the one that manages childhood growth and advancement. This control would rely upon changes in gene regulation and expression that influence the frameworks in charge of upkeep, repair and defensive responses. Damage related components incorporate inner and natural ambushes to living beings that prompt aggregate damage at different levels.

 

Track-08: Geriatrics Associated Neurocognitive Disorders

Some of the most commonly dealt by disorders and impairments related to geriatric care and gerontology that are often catching the attention of the researchers as well as of the scientific world are as follows:

Market Analysis

Introduction:

Geriatrics is a scientific discipline or social science that arrangements with the sicknesses, inabilities and consideration of elderly individuals. Gerontology is the investigation of ageing including its social, mental, psychological and natural perspectives. Gerontology is more extensive than geriatrics, which is the therapeutic claim to fame given to treatment and consideration of aged individuals. Geriatric medicine is worried with the analysis, treatment and avoidance of ailment in aged individuals and the issues particular to ageing. Geriatric consideration administration is the way toward arranging and planning consideration of the elderly individuals and with physical and mental hindrances to meet their long haul mind needs enhances their personal satisfaction and keep up their autonomy as far as might be feasible.

Scope and Importance:

Growing geriatric population intending to live independently is one of the superior drivers of the geriatric care services market. The global geriatric care services market is expected to reach to 1,012.02 billion Pounds by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. According to data published by the United Kingdom in 2014, it has been estimated that by the year 2022, approximately 35% of the population would be above 60 years of age. Presence of various long term care services providers coupled with favorable reimbursement policies are few factors expected to boost the growth of the geriatric care services market. Furthermore, increasing oldest old population who are prone to various medical conditions such as Neurological, Orthopedic, Cardiovascular & Respiratory disorders coupled with increasing technological advancement such as the development of specialty robots capable of assisting elderly in carrying out day to day operations are expected to drive the geriatric care services market growth.
