Did You Know…

Did you know that PDCRx provides Clinical Material for you and your hospice team?

In each newsletter we produce, we include a “Clinical Pearl” or educational material covering a wide range of topics. We then turn the Clinical Pearl into a PowerPoint that can be easily shared with your hospice team to further education. Developed by the PDCRx Clinical Team, these resources are readily available at your fingertips through your PDC Shared Work account.
We are constantly looking for feedback and/or topics that you would like to see covered or that you think your hospice would benefit further from.

Here is a list of Clinical Material that we have already prepared:

•    How to Have the Difficult Conversations
•    Do We Still Need All of These Meds?
•    Everybody Gets A Zofran!! But should they…
•    Pain Management and Opioids
•    Methadone Utilization
•    Deciding Appropriate Medications for End of Life

Do you have a topic for Clinical Material that you would like to see covered?
For more information, contact Taylor Bradshaw at taylor@pdcrx.com.

What is “Total Pain”?…
 

Ever had a patient who you felt you had to continually go up and up and up on the pain and anxiety meds? Well…there is a good chance the “pain” is not just physical pain. According to Dame Cicely Saunders, there are multiple facets of pain that can all manifest in the form of physical pain:


1.    Psychological (What will death feel like? Will it hurt? Underlying anxiety? Lack of sleep/rest?)
2.    Spiritual (Beliefs in Heaven? Is there an afterlife? Have I done all I can in this Earthly life?)
3.    Social (Are my finances in order? Will my family be taken care of? Have I made amends with all family and friends? Who will take over care on my pets, children, work, etc.?)
4.    Physical (Actual physical pain? Anticipatory pain?)
