Rebecca,
     Record #21269606 is an authenticated (field 042   nsdp |a lc) record and the last institution in the 040 was NLM (National Library of Medicine) following CONSER standards.  Since the word change is beyond the "first five words" and does not meaningfully change the scope of the publication, it is considered a "minor" change, i.e a variation as stated in the 246.  The second record you cite (#57519500) has a 936 Do not use note  and refers you to #21269606.
                                                                   Ann

Hi, all- would those experienced catalogers out there consider this a major title change, from _American journal of hospice & palliative care_ to _American journal of hospice & palliative medicine_?  OCLC #21269606 considers it a minor change, while several OCLC #s, including 57519500, consider it a major change.
