10/01/2008 - "Despite hospice's reputation as the gold standard for terminal care, there is still a need to improve pain management practices, including challenges that caregivers face, related to pain assessment, reluctance and fear of administering medication, noncompliance with pain medicine regimens, and hesitance to report pain. "
09/01/2013 - "The interpretative analysis of the interviews led to the definition of three categories: Improving the quality of life through the alleviation of pain and suffering; Palliative Care: a multi-professional study of terminal patients and their families in the grieving process; Communication: a source of dignity in the terminal care process. "
01/01/2008 - "These 13 quantitative studies along with 9 qualitative studies identified specific barriers to effective terminal care provision including (a) lack of involvement in the plan of care and comfort, (b) disagreement among physicians and other healthcare team members, (c) inadequacy of pain relief, (d) unrealistic expectations of families, (e) nurses' difficulty coping, (f) lack of experience and education, (g) staffing levels, and (h) environmental circumstances. "
01/01/2015 - "Almost all the doctors are interested and they are willing to have more training in pain control, breaking bad news, communication skills and terminal care."
10/01/2010 - "In the last section, we have attempted to clarify the as yet indistinct notion of 'euthanasia' in order to determine whether the conception of terminal care in the Law of 22 April 2005 was consistent with that put forward by the philosopher Francis Bacon, who claimed that, 'The physician's role is to relieve pain, not only when such relief can lead to healing, but also when it can proffer a calm and trouble-free death, thus putting an end to the suffering and the agony of death' (modern adaptation of the original quote)."
