The COVID-19 pandemic is having a profound and worldwide impact on individuals, families, communities and healthcare providers, and the field of Palliative Care, with its focus on reducing suffering, is playing an important role in caring for the sick and dying. In both developed and developing countries the global pandemic has dramatically altered the death and dying process and has challenged our capacity to care for patients and to support families and healthcare providers. In this webinar, an international panel of Palliative Care experts will describe the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world and will participate in a roundtable discussion to examine some of the key challenges and opportunities for palliative care patients, families and providers. Issues such as palliative care practice, resource management, end of life practices, grief, dying alone, and provider fatigue and resilience will be explored.
