[Research Presentation] Purpose:   To compare patient background and need by end-of-life care stage in home care patients between Korea and Japan, and to identify priority areas of care. Methods:   Subjects of this study were adults/elder persons over 40 who received home care services by visiting nurses of home care centers/stations and died at home during a period of January to December, 2006. Visiting nurses completed the questionnaire on needs by care stage. Care period was classified into: 1) Introductory stage (7days), 2) near death stage (7days), and 3) stable stage. Subjects for analysis were those who received home care services over all these stages and died at home: 120 cases in Korea and 119 cases in Japan. Results:   1) Mean age: 67.6 years old in Korea, and 75.3 years old in Japan (P<0.0001). 2) Rate of telling diagnosis was 84% in Korea and 71% in Japan (P<0.0001). 3) Cognitive disorder: 14% in Korea, 32% in Japan. 4. Median of home care period: 66 days in Korea, and 44 days in Japan (P<.0001). Yen currency +/- Mean Need Rate: There were 77% in introductory stage, 78.5% in stable and 70.6% in near death in Korea, and 67.5%, 64.2%, 64.7% in Japan in large category. In Korea, pain control was the highest in every stage in middle category. The second was family caregiving capacity/health problem, coordination among relatives (81%-93%) and psychological burden of patient and family in introductory and stable stages (92%-93%). In Japan, caregiving capacity/health problem in every stage (80%-93%), pain control (80%-86%), and psychological burden of patient and family (76%-80%) were high. Conclusion: 1. Telling diagnosis and prognosis rate and needs rate were high in Korea. 2. In two countries, high rate of needs in each stage were pain control, family caregiving capacity/health problem, and psychological burden. These needs are especially important.
