Description

This session discusses how to deal with transition points and crises, both in terms of initial management options and how these options can be explained and discussed with patients approaching the end of life and their relatives and carers. The ways in which these transition points and crises influence decision-making in symptom management are explored.

This session was reviewed by Amy Proffitt and Christina Faull and last updated in November 2015.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Explain the need to be alert for changes such as infections and unexpected crises in a patient’s condition, which may mark transition points in an end of life population
• Assess the signs and symptoms of change and outline initial management options
• Recognise the impact of infections, transition points and crises on patients approaching the end of life and family/carers
• Outline how you can provide supportive communication and information about infections, transition points and crises, so that sensible and appropriate decisions related to symptom management can be made

Dee Traue - Macmillan Consultant in Palliative Medicine

I joined the Addenbrookes Palliative Care Team as lead consultant for the multi-professional hospital support team in 2005. Having graduated from Barts & The London Medical School in 1996, I completed a medical rotation in London gaining MRCP, before commencing the North Thames Specialist Registrar rotation in Palliative Medicine. This covered a variety of hospital, hospice and community teams across London and Essex. After completing my specialist training, I worked as a locum Consultant at The Royal Marsden Hospital and St John’s Hospice, London.

I am involved in a number of strategic projects at present, in particular the development of end of life initiatives both regionally and within the Trust. I am Chair of the East of England SHA Palliative and End of Life Care Clinical Programme Board, a member of the PCT Palliative and End of Life Care workstream and the Addenbrooke’s End of Life Care Steering Group.

I have a strong interest in the social sciences, undertaking a BSc in Sociology as Applied to Medicine as part of my undergraduate studies, and an MSc in Medical Ethics at Imperial College in 2003. I am also interested in medical education, participating in undergraduate teaching on both the palliative care and ethics & law strands of the medical student curriculum, as well as taking part in a variety of multi-professional graduate programs.
