  • Time is relativeMany cues to time besides clock
  • Camera unlocks a secret – it stops time – water pouring splashing EdwaRDmUYBRIDGEleland Stanfordhttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4a/Muybridge_race_horse_gallop.jpg
  • 3 years 90,000 hours of video, 140k hours of audio and 200 terabytes
  • Time bind is a concept introduced by sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild in 1997 with the publication of her The Time Bind: When Work Becomes Home and Home Becomes Work. This concept refers to the blurring distinction between work and home social environments.Hochschild found in her research that although most working parents, particularly all mothers, said "family comes first," few of them considered adjusting their long hours, even when their workplaces offered flextime, paternity leave, telework or other "family friendly" policies. Her conclusion is that the roles of home and work had reversed: work has become more attractive, offering a sense of belonging, while home had grown more stressful, becoming a dreaded place with too many demands.
  • The Four Noble Truths 1. Life is suffering 2. Suffering is caused by unreasonable expectations 3. Suffering ceases with the ceasing of unreasonable expectations 4. The way to reasonable expectations is the Eightfold Middle Path

    • 3. Disclosures
    • 4. Objectives• Describe the challenge of prolonged dying from the perspective of patient and family• Understand the difference between objective and subjective measurements of time and prognosis• Describe how the perspective of time and prognosis influences suffering at the end of life
    • 5. What We Will Not Cover• What is death?• When exactly are you dead?• Medically hastened death• How to formulate a prognosis• How to communicate a prognosis*
    • 6. Definitions• Syndrome – Several clinically recognizable signs, symptoms or phenomena occurring together• Construct – An ideal object that may or may not exist physically• Phase – Distinguishable part of sequence occurring over time• Time – Not anything that you think it is
    • 7. DEFINTION
    • 8. Bio Medical PDPPsycho Social
    • 9. When the dying process of a terminal patient with minimal function exceeds the expected or true prognosis to the degree which the patient, family or health care teambegins to question the expected time frame. Physical symptoms and physical suffering do not need to be present for PDP,yet suffering related to time and expectations may be experienced by all involved.
    • 10. Aspects of PDP• Patient is terminally ill• Care setting and tenor reflects terminal status• PPS ≤ 30%• May be identified by patient, family or staff• Usually acceptance; even welcoming of death• Suffering dependent on perception of time/ meaning as opposed to physical symptoms
    • 11. What PDP Is Not• “We’re all dying…” – Denial/minimizing coping mechanisms• Lack of consensus of impending death• Not from first declaration of terminality/diagnosis• Not a side effect of medically hastened deaths• Depression
    • 12. Subjective vs ObjectiveSubjective vs ObjectiveI’m right! You’re wrong! La La La! I can’t hear you!
    • 13. Subjective Prolonged Dying• Prognosis dependent – Errant prediction • Communicated • Formulated • Perceived – Multiple predictor (wide range) – Altered time passage• Prognosis independent – Stochastic – Labeling – Acceptance – “Time bind” hypothesis – Altered time passage
    • 14. Subjective PDP – Prognosis Dependent – Errant prediction • Communicated • Formulated • Perceived – Multiple predictor (wide range) – Altered time passage
    • 15. Errant Prediction• Communicated – “Afraid to tell the truth” phenomenon• Formulated – Poor models, poor data, poor experience• Perceived – Common wisdom • “Without food and water…” – “Seems really close” – Prior experience
    • 16. Subjective PDP – Prognosis Dependent – Errant prediction • Communicated • Formulated • Perceived – Multiple predictor (wide range) – Altered time passage
    • 17. Multiple Predictor• Multiple HC professionals• Offering multiple opinions• Over multiple times• Evaluator (patient or family) – Chooses/selectively hears based on multiple factors• Leads to wide range• Improves w/ communication/family meetings
    • 18. Subjective PDP – Prognosis Dependent – Errant prediction • Communicated • Formulated • Perceived – Multiple predictor (wide range) – Altered time passage
    • 19. Memory is Faulty• How long is a minute? – If you are 20? – If you are 80?

    • 22. Falling Experiment
    • 23. Subjective Prolonged Dying• Prognosis dependent – Errant prediction • Communicated • Formulated • Perceived – Multiple predictor (wide range) – Altered time passage• Prognosis independent – Stochastic – Labeling – Acceptance – “Time bind” hypothesis – Altered time passage
    • 24. Prognosis Independent• Stochastic• Labeling• Acceptance• “Time bind” hypothesis• Altered time passage
    • 25. Prognosis Independent• Stochastic• Labeling• Acceptance• “Time bind” hypothesis• Altered time passage
    • 26. Labeling• “I’m/You’re/He/She is dying”• “On hospice”• “On morphine”• “Stopping medicines/vent/feeding”• Amenable to education and support• Similar but different from perceived errant prediction/common wisdom
    • 27. Prognosis Independent• Stochastic• Labeling• Acceptance• “Time bind” hypothesis• Altered time passage
    • 28. Acceptance• “I’m done”• “I’m dying – nothing left to do, just wait”• Psycho-social-spiritual interventions – Making meaning – Dignity therapy
    • 29. Prognosis Independent• Stochastic• Labeling• Acceptance• “Time bind” hypothesis• Altered time passage
    • 30. Time Bind Hypothesis• Fast pace of our lives• Makes us less patient with indefinite or extended periods of timeThe Time Bind, Arlie Russell Hochschild 1997
    • 31. Prognosis Independent• Stochastic• Labeling• Acceptance• “Time bind” hypothesis• Altered time passage
    • 32. Objective Prolonged Dying• Stochastic• Medical interventions• Failed external outcome – Organ transplant – Special event• Statistical deviation
    • 33. Organ Transplant• Guidelines suggest 30-90 mins post extubation until time for cardiac death
    • 34. Univ Wisconsin Evaluation ToolLewis J, Peltier J, Nelson H, Snyder W, Schneider K, Steinberger D, Anderson M, Krichevsky A, Anderson J, Ellefson J, DAlessandroA.

    • 35. Objective Prolonged Dying• Stochastic• Medical interventions• Failed external outcome – Organ transplant – Special event• Statistical deviation
    • 36. Statistical Approach
    • 37. Subjective Prolonged Dying• Prognosis dependent – Errant prediction • Communicated • Formulated • Perceived – Multiple predictor (wide range) – Altered time passage• Prognosis independent – Stochastic – Labeling – Acceptance – “Time bind” hypothesis – Altered time passage

    • 41. Calculating Suffering
    • 42. Where I Need Your Help• Is prolonged the right word? – Used by staff, family, patients – Speaks to agency – Gradual, lengthy, long• Phase versus Syndrome?• If there is PDP is there Abrupt Dying Phase?
    • 43. When the dying process of a terminal patient with minimal function exceeds the expected or true prognosis to the degree which the patient, family or health care teambegins to question the expected time frame. Physical symptoms and physical suffering do not need to be present for PDP,yet suffering related to time and expectations may be experienced by all involved.
