Some end of life care situations are considered as emergencies, requiring urgent intervention. This session provides a framework for managing bleeding when immediate treatment may be aimed at prolonging life, or - if death is inevitable - at ensuring that any distress and fear experienced by the dying patient is alleviated. This session was reviewed by Aruna Hodgson and Christina Faull and last updated in december 2014.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
List the likely causes of bleeding in an end of life care population
Explain the general immediate management of bleeding
Outline the communication and information needs of patients at risk of bleeding, their family/carers and those of other professionals
Recognise that for some patients bleeding is a terminal event, and outline management of terminal haemorrhage

Dr Aruna Hodgson studied Medicine in Cambridge, and obtained a B.A. in Experimental Psychology as well as her Medical degree. After qualifying, she undertook House Officer, SHO and GP trainee posts in the Cambridge area and in Portsmouth. She completed her GP training and obtained her MRCGP in 1993.

Her experience in Palliative Medicine started in 1994, when she went to work as Hospice Physician at the newly opened Rowans Hospice in Portsmouth. She worked at the Rowans Hospice for nearly 6 years in total, and completed the University of Wales Diploma in Palliative Medicine in 1996. In 2000, she moved to the North-West to undertake Specialist Registrar training in Palliative Medicine. She developed a particular interest in palliative care for adolescents and young adults, and undertook a research project on the experiences of patients in this age group with recurrent or metastatic cancer. This work formed the basis for her MSc dissertation, and she was awarded an MSc in Palliative Medicine in 2004.

Aruna was appointed as Consultant in Palliative Medicine for Wigan Borough in September 2005, and is based at Wigan & Leigh Hospice. As well as her clinical commitments, she is involved in teaching a variety of professionals, and has developed the Wigan Borough Specialist Palliative Care Multidisciplinary Education Forum. She became Programme Director for Specialty Registrar training in Palliative Medicine in the North Western Deanery in January 2008, and is a member of the Specialty Advisory Committee in Palliative Medicine. She also chairs the Wigan Borough Palliative Care Strategy Group, and is committed to the provision of high standards of palliative and end of life care to all patients, based on need not diagnosis.
