Experimental: Treatment (radiation therapy)
This is a survey study to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of an affordable, $400 flat rate, same-day consultation, simulation, and delivery of a single fraction of palliative radiation therapy for patients with symptomatic bony metastatic disease who are currently enrolled in hospice. Treatment planning and delivery of palliative radiotherapy will utilize "standard of care" techniques. A physician survey of feasibility will be conducted on the treatment day. Patient surveys will conducted on the day of treatment and at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 2 months, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months, and 6 months after treatment.
Radiation: Radiation Therapy
Undergo standard of care radiation therapy
Other: Quality-of-Life Assessment
The patient quality of life as measured by the ESAS-r; Edmonton Symptom Assessment System revised.
Other: Survey Administration
The surveys consists of Radiation Therapy Worthfullness survey; BPI: brief pain inventory; NUS: narcotics usage survey.
- Feasibility of Treatment Delivery in the Same Day as Initial Evaluation [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]Patient evaluation will consist of surveys conducted at the time of treatment measured by the Radiation Oncologist Evaluation and Feasibility Assessments survey
- Evaluate the Treatment Influence on the Rate of Pain Stabilization and/or Reduction [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Evaluate the treatment influence on the rate of pain stabilization and/or reduction as measured by the validated BPI patient questionnaire.
- Evaluate the Treatment Influence on Patient Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Evaluate the treatment influence on patient quality of life as measured by the ESAS.
- Quantify the Percentage of Patients Receiving the Treatment Who Believe That the Treatment Was Worthwhile [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Quantify the percentage of patients receiving the treatment who believe that the treatment was worthwhile
