BACKGROUND Patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer have a substantial symptom burden and may receive aggressive care at the end of life. [...] Key MethodMETHODS We randomly assigned patients with newly diagnosed metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer to receive either early palliative care integrated with standard oncologic care or standard oncologic care alone.Expand

Effect of early palliative care on chemotherapy use and end-of-life care in patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer.

TLDR
Although patients with metastatic NSCLC received similar numbers of chemotherapy regimens in the sample, early palliative care optimized the timing of final chemotherapy administration and transition to hospice services, key measures of quality end-of-life care. Expand
Early palliative care and metastatic non-small cell lung cancer
TLDR
A model of how early integrated palliative care could potentially influence survival in patients with advanced cancer is presented and shown to provide benefits in QOL, mood, and health care utilization. Expand

TLDR
For patients with newly diagnosed incurable cancers, early integrated PC improved quality of life and other salient outcomes, with differential effects by cancer type. Expand
Integrating Palliative Care Into the Care of Patients With Advanced Lung Cancer
TLDR
The role of supportive and palliative care integrated into the treatment of patients with a diagnosis of advanced lung cancer is described with sections focused on the evaluation and treatment of pain and dyspnea, approaches to challenging communication tasks, and the support of caregivers who care for patients withAdvanced lung cancer.

  • 2012
TLDR
The data do not support the hypothesis that treatment of depression mediated the observed survival benefit from early palliative care, and depression predicted worse survival in patients with newly diagnosed metastatic NSCLC. Expand
Cost Analysis of a Randomized Trial of Early Palliative Care in Patients with Metastatic Nonsmall-Cell Lung Cancer.
TLDR
The delivery of early PC does not appear to increase overall medical care expenses for patients with metastatic NSCLC, and larger, sufficiently powered cost studies of earlyPC are needed. Expand
Early Contact with Palliative Care Services: A Randomized Trial in Patients with Newly Detected Incurable Metastatic Cancer
TLDR
The study did not demonstrate a QoL benefit for early contact with a PC nurse, and there were non-significant trends for the place of death of early contact PC patients to be other than in an acute hospital, and for greater PC input during their final acute hospital admission. Expand
Palliative care in patients with lung cancer
TLDR
Drawing attention to the earlier implementation of palliative care is an objective of research carried out during recent years to alleviate symptoms that occur in an advanced stage of disease with an expected short survival period. Expand
Effect of Palliative Care on Aggressiveness of End-of-Life Care Among Patients With Advanced Cancer.
TLDR
Palliative care substantially decreased health-care use among Medicare beneficiaries with advanced cancer, and the importance of early integration of palliatives care alongside standard oncologic care is emphasized. Expand

TLDR
In order to provide early palliatives care, the management of lung cancer patients should guarantee access to ambulatory care, inpatient care and home care as well as cooperation and communication between oncologists and palliative care physicians. Expand

TLDR
Integrated palliative and oncology care is feasible in ambulatory patients with advanced NSCLC because 64% of patients completed at least 50% of their scheduled visits and QOL assessments. Expand

TLDR
Initial palliative care consultation near the time of diagnosis in patients with incurable NSCLC is lengthy and comprised primarily of symptom management, patient and family coping, and illness understanding and education. Expand
Phase II study of an outpatient palliative care intervention in patients with metastatic cancer.
TLDR
This phase II study demonstrates efficacy of an OPCC for improvement of symptom control and patient satisfaction with care and Randomized controlled trials are indicated to further evaluate the effectiveness of specialized outpatient palliative care. Expand

TLDR
Results from trials that include symptom improvement and quality of life as end points, in addition to the more standard outcomes of tumor response and survival, will provide meaningful information in evaluating the clinical benefits of new cancer treatments. Expand

TLDR
There was no evidence of a large detrimental effect on QoL of chemotherapy in the supportive care group, and there was a small but significant survival benefit in patients treated with chemotherapy compared with supportive care alone. Expand
Chemotherapy versus supportive care in advanced non-small cell lung cancer: improved survival without detriment to quality of life
TLDR
The survival benefit seen in this trial was entirely consistent with the NSCLC meta-analysis and subsequent similarly designed large trials, and the regimens used proved to be cost effective, the extra cost of chemotherapy being offset by longer survival. Expand
Symptom frequency and severity in patients with metastatic or locally recurrent lung cancer: a prospective study using the Lung Cancer Symptom Scale in a community hospital.
TLDR
Patients with advanced lung cancer suffer frequent and severe symptoms that worsen in the final months of life, and the appropriate timing and combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy are yet to be resolved. Expand
Symptoms at presentation for treatment in patients with lung cancer: implications for the evaluation of palliative treatment. The Medical Research Council (MRC) Lung Cancer Working Party.
TLDR
Account must be taken of all symptoms at presentation, in addition to the traditionally recognised chest symptoms, in order to assess fully the benefit of palliative treatments in patients with lung cancer. Expand
Quality of life in palliative cancer care: results from a cluster randomized trial.
TLDR
A general program of palliative care may be important to ensure flexibility and to meet the needs of terminally ill patients, however, to achieve improvements on a group level of the various dimensions of quality of life, specific interventions directed toward specific symptoms or problems may have to be defined, evaluated, and included in the program.

TLDR
The need for palliative cancer care is greater than ever notwithstanding the strides made over the last decade, and further efforts are needed to realize the integration of palliatives care in the model and vision of comprehensive cancer care by 2020. Expand
