An Overview of the Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the Provision of Palliative Care.

Irish Medical Journal 2023 January 20
The Sars-Cov-2 pandemic had an immeasurable impact on the provision of palliative care in Ireland, and continues to do so. Patients and families were affected by stringent infectious disease measures. Healthcare professionals were also impacted, with recent research demonstrating the psychological impact that the pandemic had on some of those working in palliative care during the pandemic. The services provided by palliative care services also shifted. Many patients opted to stay at home to receive end-of-life care or symptom management from their GP and community palliative homecare teams where possible. Palliative care services in the acute hospital setting were increasingly utilised to support teams to provide end-of-life care in a developing and challenging clinical environment. Communication technology was used to for multidisciplinary team meetings, to communicate with families and by community home care teams for some patient assessments. Our article outlines some of the major ways in which palliative care was impacted by the Sars-Cov-2 pandemic.
