This episode features Matthew Allsop (St Gemma’s Academic Unit of Palliative Care, Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK). This retrospective cohort study aimed to identify patient and organisational factors that influence the duration of hospice-based palliative care in the United Kingdom prior to death.

The results of this study found that despite increasing rhetoric around early referral, patients with advanced disease are receiving referrals to hospice specialist palliative care very late in their illness trajectory. Age and diagnosis persist as determinants of duration of hospice specialist palliative care before death.

This episode features Professor David Currow (University of Technology Sydney, Ultimo, NSW, Australia. Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre, University of Hull, Hull, UK). This transnational online survey aimed to determine the impact of a phase III randomised controlled trial on palliative care clinicians’ self-reported practice change.  The orginal study in question described the use of octreotide in the management of inoperable malignant bowel obstruction. This survey was distributed in 2016, 2 years after the first publication of the study in a peer-reviewed journal.The results demonstrated that out of 106 respondents, 52 (49.1%) indicated modified practice (60.9% of those who had previously prescribed octreotide in this setting). In those who reported practice change, most frequently octreotide was now used when other therapies failed. The results suggest that there is a cohort of ‘early adopters’ within palliative care practice as new evidence becomes available.

This episode features Dr Karen Neoh (St Gemma's Academic Unit of Palliative Care). This is the first study to interview hospice inpatients to explore their views about the corneal donation. The study found that patients are willing to discuss donation and further exploration of patients views should be undertaken.
