7%) of adult inpatients in the Cape Town metropole had an ALLD necessitating palliative care.
There are several reasons for this: 'medical beds' usually serve as 'diagnostic beds', so patients with undifferentiated disease are admitted there and cancer or end-stage organ disease is then diagnosed; there are limited oncology beds available, so the focus of oncology departments is on curative services or patients in whom good outcomes may be expected; and treatment options for patients with ALLD are largely limited to medical therapy.
The combined high percentage of patients with previously diagnosed ALLD, with recent visits to the emergency department or with exacerbation of a pre-existing condition, suggests that such opportunities exist.
