Palliating in a pandemic

It’s hard to overstate the impact of the novel Coronavirus on health systems around the world. It’s particularly poignant for palliative care workers, so familiar with dying, to imagine the loss and grief. We try to image what it could be like for health care workers at the front line. Soon we will not have to imagine, as we will be at the front line.

This article, written in 2010 about influenza by Dr Downar and Dr Seccareccia, is prescient.

Twitter as always is an invaluable source of dialogue on this issue. Try out this thread    from @AmitAryaMD  – you don’t need to be able to use Twitter to read it.

How are your teams and health care service preparing for the pandemic in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere?
