Robert Wood Johnson Initiative:Improving End-of-Life Care in ALS:  Robert Wood Johnson Initiative: Improving End-of-Life Care in ALS Hiroshi Mitsumoto, M.D. Eleanor and Lou Gehrig MDA/ALS Center The Neurological Institute College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University The Reality:  The Reality Institute of Medicine Dimensions and Deficiencies:  Too many people suffer needlessly at the end of life, both from errors of omission and from errors in commission. Legal, organizational, and economic obstacles conspire to obstruct reliably excellent care at the end of life. Approaching Death, Nat’l Academy Press, 1997 Institute of Medicine Dimensions and Deficiencies Institute of Medicine Dimensions and Deficiencies:  The education and training of physicians and other health care professionals fail to provide them the attitudes, knowledge, and skills required to care well for the dying patient. Current knowledge and understanding are insufficient to guide and support the consistent practice of evidence-based medicine at the end of life. Approaching Death, Nat’l Academy Press, 1997 Institute of Medicine Dimensions and Deficiencies Health Care Facts in USA:  Health Care Facts in USA American people are not happy about how their loved ones or friends die – lack of a 'good death' Highly inadequate use of analgesics in the EOL Medical expense is staggeringly high, leading to impoverished families Unacceptable, statistically significant, risk factor associated with minorities, the elder, and the poor Health Care Predictions in USA:  Health Care Predictions in USA At any scenario predicted, the uninsured will not disappear but grow (30 to 65 million) as will the underinsured 40 millions are now either ill or disabled, which is expected to increase in the next decades The elderly population is also rapidly growing 1.6 million people live in nursing homes today; in the next 30 year, the number will rise by 5.3 million Serious Issue 1 :  Serious Issue 1 'In recent surveys, support for legalizing physician-assisted suicide is running between 60-70%. This is dramatic evidence of peoples’ anger, and fear. The public is fed up and wants to take back responsibility for their own lives.' 'In the circumstances in which people suffer with their illness-related disability, their symptoms, and sense of being a burden to society, the choice of suicide may be entirely rationale, but it is all the more tragic…' Ira R. Byock, 2001 Serious Issue 2:  Serious Issue 2 'It’s pretty clear that at least some of the medicalized misery that dying has become is self-inflicted. As Pogo once observed, ‘We have met the enemy and he is us.’ In truth, a collective denial of dying, death and advancing morbidity is the constant that runs through the confused and conflicted state of affairs that typifies the American way of death.' Ira R. Byock, 2000 Palliative Care or End-of-Life (EOL) Care is an Important Alternative:  Palliative Care or End-of-Life (EOL) Care is an Important Alternative End of Life – ALS Database:  Of 373 patients who died, 56% died at home, 19% in hospital, 7% in hospice 47% who died at home used hospice facilities 89% recorded as dying peacefully 66% used medications to control pain, distress 37% received oxygen in terminal period Advance directives in place in 90% of cases; followed 97% of the time Bradley et al. 2001 and ALS CARE Database End of Life – ALS Database Robert Wood Johnson Initiative:  Robert Wood Johnson Initiative RWJ Foundation National Program Office Ira R.

Control of pain, of other symptoms, and psychological, social and spiritual problems is paramount. The goal of palliative care is the achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families…. palliative care…affirms life and regards dying as a normal process…' Slide18:  At the time of the diagnosis of ALS made? Sometime later, but when? Curative Palliative Dx Time When does the end of life begin? EOL and Palliative Care:  EOL and Palliative Care L i f e C l o s u r e D E A T H B e r e a v e m e n t S p i r i t u a r i t y Symptom Management Hospice Care Medical Education B E R E A V E M E N T Counseling, Support group Patient — Caregiver — Family The Operational Definition of EOL in ALS6 “Triggers”:  The Operational Definition of EOL in ALS 6 'Triggers' The patient or family asks – or 'opens the door' for end-of-life information and/or interventions (elicited or spontaneous, verbal or non-verbal), or Severe psychological and/or social or spiritual distress or suffering, or Pain requiring opiates, or Dysphagia requiring feeding tube, or Dyspnea or symptoms of hypoventilation, forced vital capacity at 50% or less, or Loss of function in two body regions   Clinicians Must Review Their Own Experience and Attitude:  Clinicians Must Review Their Own Experience and Attitude Clinicians first must come to terms with their own deaths Clinicians’ own attitudes about dying and choices they may or they may not make for themselves End-of Life Subcommittees:  End-of Life Subcommittees Ethics, Communication, and Decision Making Wendy Johnston, MD, Chair Psychosocial Care Mark Bromberg, MD, Chair Access of Care, Cost of Care, and Knowledge/ Education Rup Tandan, MD, Chair Symptom Management All members Ethics, Communication, and Decision Making:  Ethics, Communication, and Decision Making Physicians Lack of familiarity of how to discuss difficult issues: Dx of ALS, need for assistive devices, end-of-life discussions Too much too late is a consistent issue for ALS care Reluctant to treat the end of life patient as they are 'futile' Lack of knowledge on use of pain-control medications and the issue of withdrawing life-sustaining treatment Lack of knowledge about ALS in other specialties: PEG, NIPPV, Trach, Hospice care, etc. Ethics, Communication, and Decision Making – Recommendations :  Ethics, Communication, and Decision Making – Recommendations Practice Improve physician’s communication skills with patients/caregivers Improve physician’s comfort and familiarity with end-of-life issues Promote a patient bill of rights Patients need access to good 'standards of care' Clinical Research Analysis of timing, quality, quantity, and nature of the communication (between physicians and patients) and outcomes Policy Improve the educational program at all levels Psychosocial Care:  Psychosocial Care Bereavement Spirituality Quality of Life Family Caregivers Overall Psychosocial Intervention Hope while dying Coping and counseling Sexuality andamp; intimacy Needs of children Dying andamp; life closure Ethnic and cultural difference Bereavement :  Bereavement Bereavement is a process that begins when something is lost or someone dies; grief is the feeling of sadness associated with the loss; and mourning is the expression of sorrow and grief. Uniqueness of bereavement in patients with ALS (progressive with loss of function) Uniqueness of bereavement in caregivers Bereavement vs. relief and guilt Research: basic data needs to be accumulated in patients and their caregivers Spirituality:  Spirituality Present Status Spiritual needs are still largely neglected even in the context of end-of-life care Practice Recommendations Incorporate spiritual care as an integral component of palliative care for the patients and their families by the multidisciplinary ALS team Professional involved in the care of patients with ALS should have spiritual care education Spirituality:  Spirituality Research Recommendations Improve the evidence base for spiritual care interventions Policy Recommendations Focus efforts on improving familiarity and education of health care professionals on spirituality issues Incorporate spirituality into medical school curriculum Quality of Life (QOL):  Quality of Life (QOL) Current Status Quality of Life instruments have not been incorporated in patient care. Practice Recommendations Consider using QOL instruments. The McGill and the SEIQoL are validated Research Recommendations Need for further validation of QOL instruments at end of life and investigate whether QOL-guided care provides improved outcomes Family Caregivers:  Family Caregivers Present Status Caregivers are mentally distressed and physically exhausted The Ideal Goal Caregiving offers a rewarding experience and improves QOL of patient’s and caregiver’s wellness Practice Recommendations Proactive caregiver attention (education, counseling, and support) prevents caregiver burden Family Caregivers:  Family Caregivers Research Recommendations Initiate prospective studies to develop caregiver risk assessment for those at high risk (high potential for distress/burden) and Develop proactive caregiver care programs and assess over the long-term to measure changes in outcome Develop caregiver’s QOL and burden scales Policy Recommendations Provide Medicare and other insurance reimbursements for family caregivers who provide end-of-life care and Provide reimbursement for physicians who care for the caregivers of their patients Access of Quality Care:  Access of Quality Care Present Status Lack of coordination of multidisciplinary care Patients and caregivers are dissatisfaction with fragmented care Practice Recommendations Develop a standard end-of-life care algorithm Research Recommendations Investigate the ideal timing of referral to hospice in ALS Policy changes Establish a 'Center of Excellence' certification program Modify and expand Medicare guidelines for hospice use for patients with ALS Final Report:  Final Report INTRODUCTION: A case statement describing the need for the Workgroup and why the group convened The convening process WORKGROUP FINDINGS Identification of existing resources Identification of gaps   RECOMMENDATIONS TO FIELD Practice Recommendations Research and program development recommendations (clinical, education, health systems) Policy recommendations Slide34:  ALS Peer Workgroup Dissemination of ALS Workgroup Recommendations Policy makers Health care payers Voluntary disease organizations Funders Medical educators Health care organizations Healthcare professions Patients and caregivers RWJ Foundation NIH National program office Summary and Conclusions:  Summary and Conclusions End-of-life care in ALS is part of the RWJ’s continued commitment in promoting excellence in end-of-life care ALS Association functioned as a facilitator and assembled the ALS Peer Workgroup We looked at the end-of-life care in ALS in the broadest possible ways: Current state clinical care Ideal state of care Recommendations practice research and program development, and policy Summary and Conclusions:  Summary and Conclusions Seek endorsement from American Academy of Neurology and other ALS-related organizations This effort will be highly complementary to the AAN Practice Parameter Dissemination plans include: a consensus or opinion paper, special journal issues on end-of-life care in ALS patient and caregiver educational material and management booklets.
