Coronavirus (COVID-19): Having Vital Conversations
- Serious Illness Conversatons https://seriousillnessconversations.org/
Serious Illness Conversations is designed by Palliative Care health care professionals to enable and promote communicate with our patients, families and colleagues. “COVID19 has demanded that staff across settings and geography integrate primary palliative care skills whether answering phones, standing security, disinfecting space, hooking up ventilators, providing treatments and guidance through recovery or death. The following circumstances, words and phrases can never capture the full landscape of experiences, conversations, dilemmas, emotions and thoughts COVID 19 has brought into our worlds. They are a sampling - suggestions that might ease the anxiety of those who “do not know what to say”, raise the voice and compassion of those who provide care as well as inviting the voice of those who are cared for.”
