Today we find ourselves in the middle of a pandemic. COVID-19 has swept across the globe with thousands dead, more seriously unwell, and a sense of anxiety and uncertainty within healthcare professions that is unlike anything we have seen. As the course of the viral illness becomes clearer, management guidelines are being produced, including around the topics of supportive and palliative care.
To understand the real life implications of working on the front line, Dr Tavabie and Dr Ball, in this BMJ Supportive and Palliative Care article, conducted a series of short structured interviews with clinicians across the UK in a variety of healthcare settings, discussing their experiences and looking for themes arising from the current COVID-19 outbreak. They hope that quotes from these conversations make for an accurate description of our current time, and may be of interest now and in future.
