Course Description:

Social distancing is helping limit the spread of the COVID-19, but for seniors and those who live alone it can present challenges from lack of interaction and isolation. Healthcare workers can help support this vulnerable community by finding ways to mitigate the implications of social distancing and recognize capacity to overcome barriers to care. Attendees will: 1) Will identify differences between social distancing, spatial distancing, and emotional distancing 2) Will understand potential risk areas (emotional, physical, cognitive, spiritual) for patients and families, and their relationship to trauma and complicated grief responses 3) Will learn creative ways to mitigate the implications of social distancing and recognize capacity to overcome barriers to care The information presented was accurate as of the time of the original presentation (4/3/20), but the situation with the Coronavirus is rapidly changing and we encourage healthcare professionals to continue to work with their local hospice teams to ensure they are following the most up-to-date guidance and best practice.
