Abstract

Evidence currently suggests that many people would prefer to die at home. However, optimal end-of-life homecare depends on the patient's ability to express their care preferences, prognostic awareness, complexity of care, concordance of patient/carer preferences and availability of appropriate services/support. This study explores Irish Head and Neck Cancer (HNC) patient and caregivers' views on end-of-life care (EoLC), an area hitherto little studied.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 October 2019.
All research outputs
#5,231,148
of 17,353,889 outputs
Outputs from BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care
#692
of 1,339 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#54,777
of 194,730 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care
#7
of 14 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,353,889 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 69th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,339 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.2. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 194,730 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 14 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 57% of its contemporaries.
