Part one of the brand new Palliative care webinar series The human side of Covid-19: Reflections on Palliative Care.

This webinar will reflect on the challenges of communication experienced during COVID-19 pandemic and how this will shape future lessons on communication. Expert speakers and facilitators will provide guidance that is relevant to all primary and secondary healthcare professionals.

During this webinar you will:

  • Acknowledge difficulties in communicating with patients and families by telephone
  • Appreciate recent research methods and tools developed to improve communications.
  • Be able to apply a framework for communication and appraise its uses
  • Understand the components of conversation and distinguish which aspects to alter when communicating in PPE.
Dr Kathryn Mannix will be addressing her experiences in developing a framework for discussing unwelcome news in the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on the challenges of navigating difficult telephone consultations.
Prof Ruth Parry will be drawing on her experiences within conversation analysis to demonstrate the components for this framework as well as exploring the limitations that PPE imposes on non-verbal communication.
Prof Liz Sampson will be speaking from her experiences in dementia and delirium to reflect on the challenges of interpreting behavior when patients themselves are in PPE and performing remote capacity assessments.
