Grief and Bereavement (2)

Caring for bereaved family members during the COVID-19 pandemic: before and after the death of a patient.

[img]

Bereavement care is considered an integral component of quality end-of-life care endorsed by the palliative care movement. However, few hospitals and health care institutions offer universal bereavement care to all families of patients who die. The current coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic has highlighted this gap and created a sense of urgency, from a public health perspective, for institutions to provide support to bereaved family members. In this article, drawing on the palliative care and bereavement literature, we offer suggestions about how to incorporate palliative care tools and psychological strategies into bereavement care for families during this pandemic.

Ian Anderson House Residential Hospice

[img]

Ian Anderson House is open to individuals aged 16 or older with a life expectancy of three months or less who, for whatever reason, cannot be provided with the necessary around-the-clock care in their own homes.

Admission to the “House” is open to individuals who reside within the geographical boundary of the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network, which includes most of Mississauga (excluding Malton), Oakville, Milton, Halton Hills and South Etobicoke.

Historically, the “House” has only admitted individuals who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, but we now also may accept individuals with non-cancer diagnoses on a case-by-case basis.

Grief During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Considerations for Palliative Care Providers

[img]

The COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to continue spreading widely across the globe throughout 2020. To mitigate the devastating impact of COVID-19, social distancing and visitor restrictions in health care facilities have been widely implemented. Such policies and practices, along with the direct impact of the spread of COVID-19, complicate issues of grief that are relevant to medical providers. We describe the relationship of the COVID-19 pandemic to anticipatory grief, disenfranchised grief, and complicated grief for individuals, families, and their providers. Furthermore, we provide discussion regarding countering this grief through communication, advance care planning, and self-care practices. We provide resources for health care providers, in addition to calling on palliative care providers to consider their own role as a resource to other specialties during this public health emergency.
