Grey Nuns Community Hospital



Covid-19 has had a major impact on how palliative patients and their families experience the death and dying process. The impact of wearing masks, visitor restrictions, and social distance on the provision of psychosocial-spiritual care and end-of-life cultural rituals will be explored. Members of the Interdisciplinary team of a Tertiary Palliative Care Unit will discuss the challenges faced, and offer strategies to adapt psychosocial-spiritual care to maintain dignity while continuing to provide safety during a pandemic.
