COVID-19

Providing end-of-life care can be made more difficult during this time, and our palliative care during the COVID-19 pandemic page provides guidance to best manage your patients and support their families.

Palliative Care COVID-19 Response Group

A statewide Palliative Care COVID-19 Response Group comprising clinicians across the public and private health systems was established. The response group provided means to raise, discuss, escalate and resolve palliative care issues impacted by COVID-19. The group considered patient, community and staff welfare in the provision of palliative care.

The Report from the Palliative Care COVID-19 Response Group (PDF 584KB) highlights both the initiatives undertaken for the provision of palliative care for terminally ill COVID-19 patients and their families, and the ongoing provision of safe pre-existing palliative care service delivery in the acute and community settings.
