Discussing advance care planning with elderly patients


, : Discussing advance care planning with elderly patients. North Carolina Medical Journal 75(5): 347-351

Advance care planning maximizes the patient's chances of receiving the care he or she wants and minimizes confusion. Frank discussion, time, and persistence are needed to optimize this shared decision-making process. This article discusses the important components of advance care planning and the recommended documentation.

Picrosirius red (PSR) staining is a commonly used histological technique to visualize collagen in paraffin-embedded tissue sections. PSR stained collagen appears red in light microscopy. However it is largely unknown that PSR stained collagen also...

Hollinshead, W.Henry, 1937: The innervation of the abdominal chromaffin tissue. In addition to a study of the normal distribution of nerve fibers in the abdominal chromaffin tissue of the dog and cat, an experimental investigation of the source of these fibers has been undertaken. The nerve plexus in this tissue has been foun...

The intricate shape of Ti-6Al-4V anatomic hip prostheses necessitates the use of casting as a fabrication method, since neither machining, nor forging or powder metallurgial processing are reasonably acceptable. Cast and hot isostatically pressed...

This beam is formed by a distorted concave spherical wave front that can be generated by a Galilean transmitting telescope with an...

Sharma, S.S.; Ma, L.; Pledger, W.Jackson., 2016: p27Kip1 inhibits the cell cycle through non-canonical G1/S phase-specific gatekeeper mechanism. The cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor p27Kip1 has been shown to regulate cellular proliferation via inhibition of CDK activities. It is now recognized that p27Kip1 can regulate cellular processes through non-canonical, CDK-independent mechan...

Levesque, C.A.dre; Beckenbach, K.; Baillie, D., L.; Rahe, J., E., 1993: Pathogenicity and DNA restriction fragment length polymorphisms of isolates of Pythium spp., from glyphosate-treated seedlings. Sixty Pythium isolates from glyphosate-treated wheat or green bush bean seedlings grown in mineral or organic soils were examined with regard to possible host and site (soil type) specificity. Pythium ultimum dominated the Pythium population isola...

Maisel, K.; Reddy, M.; Xu, Q.; Chattopadhyay, S.; Cone, R.; Ensign, L.M.; Hanes, J., 2016: Nanoparticles coated with high molecular weight PEG penetrate mucus and provide uniform vaginal and colorectal distribution in vivo. We previously reported that nanoparticles (NPs) coated with 10 kDa PEG were mucoadhesive. Here, we demonstrate that by increasing the surface density, PEG with molecular weight (MW) as high as 40 kDa can be used as a mucoinert NP surface coating....

Recalcitrance of plant biomass to enzymatic hydrolysis for biofuel production is thought to be a property conferred by lignin or lignin-carbohydrate complexes. However, chemical catalytic and thermochemical conversion pathways, either alone or in...
