  • Here we see another one of these situations. As soon as 1988, Maguire and Faulkner proposed strategies to address it, which sought to work both sides of the ambivalence
  • In the most widely used protocol for delivering bad news I have ever seen relations with the informative style of motivational interviewing
  • Now we suggest you do an exercise to experience some of these situations and assess how motivational interviewing can fit in them. In small groups 5-7 we will give an overview of a difficult situation in palliative care taken from real cases. One participant will be therapist, another patient and the other observers. We expect that in a few minutes you may have a conversation addressing this situation; is not necessary to resolve it.
    When we finish we will ask the therapist to make a summary reflecting the ambivalence of the patient if found

    9. 9. An exercise… with a palliative care situation
    10. 10. Small groups 5-7 Few minutes 5-7 Make a summary
    11. 11. Summary CASE 1 68 year-old man, hospitalized for locally extended bladder cancer. It has been rejected in the cancer evaluation committee to follow on chemotherapy and the patient was informed in this regard. Urologists requested transfer to palliative care. When the palliative care specialist meets the patient´s wife, out of the room, she tells him that the patient knows the diagnosis and has also been informed of the decision to stop chemotherapy , but she doesn't want him to be moved to the palliative care unit because "that means you are hopeless ."
    12. 12. Summary CASE 2 48 year-old physician diagnosed with lung carcinoma 2 years ago. He has been treated with several lines of chemotherapy with partial and no durable responses, and at present is suffering from severe renal toxicity that compels to stop that treatment. He has been bedridden for several months and is dependent for most activities of daily living. He is hardly able to control the pain and that requires high doses of opioids. He hopes to continue with another line of chemotherapy because "you never know".
    13. 13. Summary CASE 3 57 year-old patient diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, carrier of invasive home mechanical ventilation and gastrostomy tube feeding for 2 years. He always said that he wanted to go ahead as long as he maintains his ability to communicate and relate in some way with the environment. He only preserves ocular motility and very some weak movement in one arm, so that he communicates very poorly, and he does so with an adapted computer. His wife tells us that on numerous occasions, "when his arm responds " he has removed the vent pipe. He says "he wants to end ", to "withdraw this torture" and that "life does not make sense". However talks about plans for the future, is writing a book, has the upcoming wedding of a nephew who would like to attend and says that "his biggest problem is that his wife does not understand his suffering“.
    14. 14. Summary CASE 4 Antonio, 93, no cognitive impairment, very advanced heart failure with severe dyspnea so from the last hospital admission needs help for any activity. He insists that he wants to die, that his life is lived, that he does not wants to live if he is dependent on others for everything and he does not want to return to hospital. His family agrees and you assure him that you will respect his wishes. Some days after he starts to notice a pain in epigastrium and he asks if you cannot do something to find the cause.
    15. 15. Summary CASE 5 53 year-old woman suffering from breast cancer with bone metastases treated with palliative radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She suffers from important physical deterioration so spends most of the day in bed with pain, treated with high-dose of opioids. She knows her diagnosis and says that the end is near. She clearly does not want to have pain even if it means taking high doses "I know that I'll be sleeping all day but I don't care: I have arranged all my affairs." Three days later she calls because she has a lot of pain and she couldn't sleep all night; when you ask her, she confesses that she's taken fewer doses of painkillers because “I have slept all day and things cannot be that way”.
    16. 16. As the field of palliative care has matured, communication strategies have developed to guide common tasks… These strategies do not directly address resistance or ambivalence— two common situations in palliative care consultations.
    17. 17. The MI philosophy and principles fit easily into palliative care. Most of palliative care involves discussing patients’ values and priorities.
    18. 18. Not all the MI techniques are applicable, however, in part because palliative care clinicians do not guide patients to make particular choices but, instead, help patients make choices that are consistent with patient values
    19. 19. The illusion of choice • Information about prognosis is not accurate • Choice is determined by system characteristics and clinicians point of view • Many patients find other values more important than autonomy • Patient express conflicting values • Decisions are a process with cognitive, emotional and moral components
    20. 20. Ambivalence is very common in palliative care.
    21. 21. MI fits very well in palliative care communication
    22. 22. Communication is the brush bioethics are painted with
    23. 23. Is it always necessary to use MI in equipoise in palliative care?
